Selecting a Dentist Who’s Right for Your Needs

dca-blog_dentist-selection-family

Healthy teeth and gums ensure a great smile, and your oral health can directly affect your general health, so finding the right dentist to manage your family’s oral care is important. It can also be a monumental task when you don’t know how to start. Although it’s not difficult to find an affordable dentist who is accepting new patients, selecting a dentist for your personal needs is a different story. Some dentists may not accept your dental plan. Others may have inflexible office hours. If you need specialized care, some dentists may not be qualified to handle your case. Fortunately, there are ways to make selecting a dentist a little easier. Here are some great tips to get you started.

Know the Types of Dentists

The first thing to know is that dentists whose titles designate them as doctors of dental surgery (DDS) and those who are known as doctors of dental medicine (DMD) have the exact same qualifications and training. A general dentist may also be called a family or cosmetic dentist. These titles do not reflect official dental specialties. If you are experiencing common symptoms such as tooth or jaw pain, minor bleeding, tooth injury or cavities, you probably don’t need to consult a specialist. A general dentist can assess your specific needs after a comprehensive exam. He or she may be able to perform treatments like wisdom tooth extractions and restorative procedures that specialists also perform.

Ask Prospective Dentists the Right Questions

Ask each prospective practitioner the following questions before selecting a dentist:

  • What training and experience do you have?
  • What advanced technologies or equipment do you use?
  • What kinds of sedation do you offer?
  • How are after-hours or weekend emergencies handled?
  • Which dental insurance plans do you accept?

To find out more about local dentists and dental clinics, contact your local dental associations, and read online reviews. Family member, friends, neighbors, and coworkers may also be valuable sources of information when selecting a dentist.
