Things to consider when choosing a dentist

Choosing a dentist can be as stressful for some as actually going to the dentist. Below are some suggestions about what to consider when selecting a dentist. We’d also suggest asking a friend or relative or the local branch of the Academy of General Dentistry for a recommendation.

Find out how long the dental practice has been in operation.

Ask about the extent of the dentist’s training and clinical experience in performing the specific procedure you require. For example, not all dentists are trained in specific cosmetic dentistry procedures. In addition, certain procedures, such as a veneer, may serve both an aesthetic and functional need.

Ask about the type of emergency care offered. For example, is the dentist available after hours and on weekends?

Inquire about patient comforts, such as pre-medication or nitrous oxide, and amenities such as music or heating pads.

If the dentist does not perform certain procedures ask about his referral process.

Ask about the types of professional dental societies the dentist is affiliated with. Some organizations require dentists to take continuing education classes to keep them up-to-date on the latest procedures and technological advances in the field. Check for societies that require their members to complete ongoing continuing education.

Inquire about the use of dental lasers as an alternative to traditional dental tools such as tooth drilling and scalpels.

Before committing yourself to a dentist, identify all the procedure options that would solve your cosmetic dental concern. Ask about the pros and cons of each option.
Is the dental team friendly and courteous? You may not want to see a dentist long term if you don’t feel comfortable with the dentist’s team.
Determine dental costs before treatment. Dental cost totals should include procedure fees, anesthesia fees, and facility fees. If you have dental insurance, the chances are good that there will be some benefit coverage applicable to specific procedures.
