Tips for Finding the Perfect Dentist

dca-blog_tips-for-finding-the-perfect-dentist

Routine visits to the dentist are an essential part of any plan to keep teeth and gums healthy and to prevent oral health issues well into the future. Because the relationship you establish with a dentist is an important one, it pays to take great care in order to select a practice that is well suited to your specific needs and those of every member of your family. If you have long wondered how to find a dentist that is right for you, the following information should prove valuable.

The American Dental Association (ADA) has compiled some useful tips that can help you begin developing a list of qualified dentists in your area. First, you can visit MouthHealthy.org and take advantage of the ADA’s Find-a-Dentist function. It is also wise to solicit personal recommendations from friends, family, and colleagues. Your personal physician or local pharmacist may also be willing to provide you with referrals to affordable dentists.

Narrowing the list of potential candidates can be challenging, and it makes sense to speak to several dentists before you make your final choice. Not every practice is a good fit for every patient, so it is important to consider things such as proximity of the office to your home or business, whether the practice has office hours that suit your schedule, and whether you find the environment to be neat and clean. Try to learn more about each dentist’s philosophy when it comes to preventive dentistry to see if it meshes well with your own.

Take the time to ask questions about fee schedules for common procedures and whether or not the office is willing to establish payment plans for particularly costly or unexpected dental work. Determining whether your dental insurance plan is accepted by a prospective office is also an essential task.

When comparing affordable dentists in Dalton, you may be wondering if there is a significant distinction between practitioners with “DMD” (Doctor of Dental Medicine) and “DDS” (Doctor of Dental Surgery) after their names. Rest assured that they are essentially the same designation, and that dentists with either credential have completed the same degree of study and clinical training and have passed stringent written exams and licensing requirements. Furthermore, dentists must complete continuing education classes throughout their careers in order to stay abreast of treatment innovations and techniques.

To get the dental care you deserve from an affordable dentist in Dalton, call Drs. Grant and Conger today at (706) 847-4165 or make an appointment.
