If you’re wondering what to expect as a patient at Maitland Ave Smile Co., this blog post is for you!
Do you feel a bit anxious or worried before a dentist appointment? You’re not alone! This feeling is especially common when seeing a new dentist for the first time.
With that thought in mind, let’s consider three tips to help you choose a dentist.
When looking for a dentist for you and your family, the American Dental Association recommends that you:
- Think about your lifestyle: You’re more likely to schedule (and show up for!) your biannual appointments if your dentist’s office is in a convenient location. Equally important is your dentist’s hours. If your schedule is packed or you (or your child) is prone to dental emergencies, make sure that your dentist offers flexible hours as well.
- Be thoughtful when searching: First, consider your dental insurance and look for in-network options. If you don’t have dental insurance, many dentists offer an in-house plan that saves you money on your check-ups, X-rays, emergency exams, fluoride treatments, and more. You can also ask friends and family members for recommendations or take a look at online reviews. Google My Business is a trustworthy option for patient feedback.
- Schedule a consultation appointment: Prior to your first cleaning, it may be helpful to meet your potential dentist. You can ask about their dental tools or share any concerns you have. You can also talk through your dental history and discuss any new or longtime issues.

Don’t take our word for it! Here’s a testimonial from one of our long-time patients:
“This is the best dental office in Orlando! From the front office staff to the dentists, everyone is caring and upbeat. It must be a great place to work because many of the staff have been there for 30 years. And I should know – my first visit to Dr Williams was in 1982. Dr. Williams, Dr. Miller, and Dr. Solberg are all talented and caring. The entire office is dedicated to making sure you are comfortable and satisfied with the care. Worth the drive from anywhere in Orlando!”
