Your Top Strategy for Finding the Best Dentist

dca-blog_dentist-selection-family

The process of choosing a dentist is an important part of keeping your oral health on track. Finding the best dentist for your needs may take some time, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. First, check your dental plan. You may be required to choose from a list of participating providers to be eligible for coverage. Some plans allow you to select a provider who is not within the network, but you may not receive full benefits if you do so. Once you’ve determined what your insurance will cover, it’s time to start researching your local dental providers.

Tips for Finding a Skilled, Affordable Dentist

Choosing a dentist is easier if you have your friends and relatives help. Ask about their experiences with their own dentists; this is a great way to learn more about any dentist’s personality and quality of care. Medical professionals are another great source of information. Ask your doctor, pharmacist, or nurse for recommendations. If you are relocating to a new area, your current dentist may be able to help. To learn more about a specific dentist’s credentials, contact your local dental society. Check your phone directory for contact details.

Ask the Right Questions to Find the Best Dentist

When you’ve narrowed your choices to three or four favorite candidates, it’s time to start considering details. Call each clinic, and ask for any of the following information that can help you with your selection of a skilled, affordable dentist.

  • Office hours
  • Procedures for billing and insurance claims
  • Fees for standard procedures like routine exams, x-rays, or dental cleanings
  • Available financing options
  • Infection control procedures
  • Protocol for handling after-hours emergencies
  • Appointment-reminder policies
