Choosing a Dentist the Smart Way

dca-blog_dentist-selection-family

Choosing a dentist is an important task. Finding the best dentist might require a little of your time and a few phone calls, but it will be worth the effort. Your first step is to check your dental insurance plan to determine if you need to choose from a list of network providers. If you are allowed to choose an out-of-network dentist, be aware that your plan may only pay for part of your treatment costs. If necessary, speak with a representative from your insurance company, so you can better understand your eligibility. Once you have determined your insurance requirements, start gathering information about your area dentists.

How to Find an Affordable Dentist
You Can Trust

Choosing a dentist doesn’t have to be a solitary task; have your friends, neighbors, and relatives help. Ask about their experiences with their own dentists; this is a great way to learn more about any dentist’s personality and quality of care to help you find the best dentist for your needs. Medical professionals are another great source of information. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for recommendations. If you’re moving to a new area, your current dentist may be able to help. To learn more about a specific dentist’s credentials, contact your local dental society. Check your phone directory for contact details.

Choosing the Best Dentist
for Your Needs

When you’ve narrowed your list when choosing a dentist, it’s time to compare the dentists. Call the office of each prospective provider and ask for any of the following information that can help you select a skilled, affordable dentist.

  • Fees for standard procedures like routine exams, x-rays, or dental cleanings
  • Financing options available
  • Location and office hours
  • Billing and insurance-claim procedure
  • Appointment-reminder policies
  • How after-hours emergencies are handled
  • Infection control
