What to Do When You Need to Find a New Dentist
Posted on 3/15/2018 by Dr. Pickens
Did you recently move and are on the lookout for a new dentist? It is important you find a great one that will help keep up with your oral health. There are plenty of places that you can look for a new dentist, but they do not always tell you everything you need to know before you go in and have your first appointment. Here are some places to look and things to consider when looking for a new dentist in your new home. Finding the Perfect New DentistFirst, you want to make a list of the top two or three qualities you want in a dentist. For example, if you have dental anxiety, you want one that specializes in fearful patients. Pick the two or three most important, then search for a local dentist with those qualities first. Once you have a list of a few, look up their reviews online. Go to places like Yelp! and see what their patients have to say about them. One bad review in a slew of good ones may be a bad experience. Lots of bad reviews is not some place to really consider. Finally, you want to make sure that you like their practices. Call them and talk to them. Make sure you like how they address your questions and concerns over the phone. If you do, then make sure they accept your insurance. If all goes well, set up a time to go in and meet the staff and dentist you want to see. Finding a new dentist after a move can be stressful, but it does not have to be. It can be a great experience and allow you to add a bunch of new, caring people to your dental family. Are you new to the area? If so, call us. We would love to meet you!...
