Selecting the Perfect Dentist

Dentist Selection

Your oral health affects your confidence and even you general health, so finding the right dentist for you and your family is important. However, it can be confusing if you don’t know where to start. Thousands of affordable dentists across the country are accepting new patients. Some have specialized experience that you may need. Others may not accept your insurance plan. The one you think is perfect might not have office hours that will work with your schedule. The many variables can make selecting a dentist a daunting task.

Here are a few tips that can make sifting through the many options in your area a little easier:

Determine Your Dental Needs. First, be aware that dentists whose titles designate them as doctors of dental surgery (DDS) and those who are known as doctors of dental medicine (DMD) have the exact same qualifications and training. A general dentist may also be known as a cosmetic dentist or family dentist, but these titles do not reflect recognized dental specialties. In most cases, symptoms like toothache, jaw pain, bleeding gums, injury, or tooth decay do not require a specialist’s care. A general dentist can assess your needs after a comprehensive exam, and offer a referral if needed. A general dentist may also be qualified to perform treatments like wisdom tooth extractions and restorative procedures that specialists also perform.

Ask the Right Questions. Before making a final selection, ask prospective dentists the following five questions:

  1. What type of education, training, and experience do you have?
  2. How do you handle after-hours or weekend emergencies?
  3. What types of sedation options do you offer?
  4. What advanced technologies or equipment do you use?
  5. What insurance plans do you accept?

Identify Your Local Dental Resources. For information about local dental clinics and dentists, check with your local dental associations and read online reviews. You can also ask friends, coworkers, and neighbors for recommendations.
