How To Choose The Best Dentist For You

By Rochelle Riley

Choosing the dentist for you and your family is as important as finding the right health care provider. This becomes even more important when you realize that more people have anxiety over dental visits and checkups than any other routine medical procedures.

It is estimated that approximately 90% of all people don’t schedule a dental appointment unless a problem develops that needs immediate attention.

So it becomes even more important to find a dentist that you like and feel comfortable with so that you will get on a regular checkup plan. Regular checkups with your dentist go a long way towards catching small issues before they become full-blown problems as well as preventing chronic health problems.

When you are looking for the right dentist consider the following:

1. Is your dentist prevention oriented?

2. Does he/she show genuine concern over your overall health as well as your oral health?

3. Did your dentist provide an active role in your examination or was the majority of the work done by a hygienist or dental assistant?

4. Did your dentist perform a thorough exam including your teeth, gums, tongue, palate, and lips?

5. Did he/she palpate for swollen lymph nodes?

6. Does you dentist provide clear explanations of what is happening?

7. Are questions/concerns patiently answered?

8. Is it evident that your dentist wants to teach you how to achieve great oral health and prevent problems before they occur?

9. Do you feel comfortable with your dentist at all times?

10. Do you like the office staff and the overall surroundings?

11. Does your dentist readily provide credentials and confidently talk about qualifications?

12. Does you dentist seem to enjoy what he/she is doing or does it seem like he/she can’t wait until the appointment or day is over.

It is extremely important that you find the right dentist to partner with. One that you feel comfortable with, that you enjoy going to, and that you confidently feel like is the best solution for your oral health.

If you choose the wrong one you are less likely to follow through with subsequent appointments and scheduled checkups and cleanings.

It is your dentist, your appointment, your time, your teeth, your money and your overall health. Making the right, positive choice of dentist will go a long way towards creating a successful oral health plan.
