Visiting the dentist sparks anxiety in many patients. However, this uneasiness can be mitigated when you find a dentist who is honest, open, and trustworthy. In today’s blog post, in an effort to alleviate that common fear, we share some tips to help you choose the best dentist for you and your family. We also introduce you to our team at Maitland Ave Smile Co. in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
How to Choose a Dentist
The American Dental Association offers the following four steps to help you find the best dental fit for you and your family:
- Think about your lifestyle. Not only do you need a dentist with an office in a convenient location to your home, job, or school, but you also need one with flexible hours.
- Be diligent in your search. To start, if you have dental insurance, be sure to look at dentists in your network. You can ask for recommendations from family or friends or check advertisements and reviews online as well.
- Schedule a consultation. Before you commit to your first cleaning, you may want to schedule a time to meet your potential dentist. At this consultation, be prepared with questions. It’s also helpful to bring your records to ensure that they can address any new or longstanding issues you may have.
- Pick a partner. Look for a dentist who is understanding and knowledgeable. Your dentist will be a trusted advisor when future health issues occur, so it’s important to find someone who makes you feel comfortable.
