Making Smarter Dental Choices
No matter what kind of dentist or dental service you require, the smart way to choose is to know what criteria is important to you and then evaluate how your new dentist will meet it. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), here are some valuable suggestions to contemplate:
- Check with your local pharmacist or family physician
- Get a recommendation from your family, friends, co-workers or neighbors
- If you are moving, check with your current dentist for a recommendation
- Contact your state or local dental society or try searching www.ada.org
Try to visit or call more than one dentist before you make your final decision. For such a personalized service as dentistry, you will want to make sure that you have a good relationship between the dentist and yourself. After all, your oral care provider is one of the primary health care providers on your health team.
Location, Location, Location
The city your dentist is located in does not always need to be the exact city you live in. You may find that if you live on the outskirts of a central urban area that there is a suburban office which is closer for you to get to than one actually located in the city. For example, getting to our Burke office from the Fairfax area may prove easier and closer than another dental office.
