SELECTING A DENTIST FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

There are many factors that one should use when selecting a family dentist. While many people select one based upon convenience, referral service, yellow pages,

location, or referral from a family member or friend, one should also consider the

following when selecting a dentist for a long term health care provider relationship.

 

  • How long has the dentist been in practice?
  • Will they work with my insurance company to maximize my dental benefits?
  • Is the dentist a member of the ADA?
  • Do they practice curent infection control procedures at their office?
  • Am I offered different options for treatment?
  • Is the dentist available for after-hours emergency coverage?
  • Are the facilities neat and clean?
  • Is the referral source one that can be trusted?
  • Does the dentist do a variety of procedures "in-office" or will I be referred out for many procedures?
  • What hours are they open?
  • Do they treat children?
  • Does the dentist involve the patient in the treatment planning phase?
  • Do you need special assistance or care such as wheelchair access, nitrous oxide, pre-medication, etc.?

 


NOTE: While these are factors that one might wish to include when selecting a dentist, the decision is a personal one and you need to be comfortable with the dentist you choose. It is their responsibility to let you know the answers to these questions as well as explain the advantages and disadvantages of the treatment options that are presented to you. In addition, you have a right to know the cost in advance and have the procedure explained in a way that you can understand it.
