Regular cleanings and checkups are part of your first line of defense against dental health issues, so naturally you want to have the best dentist possible. What should you look for? If you’re new in town, or have been looking around for a new dentist, Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ suggests the following.
- Location and Office Hours. It’s a little like real estate: location, location, location! Choosing a dentist that is near to where you live or work is important, since it makes it easier to make and keep your appointments. On the other hand, it is not the only consideration; some dentists may be worth driving a little further. Their office hours may be better suited to your schedule.
- Chairside manner. This is one of the more important considerations. You want to feel comfortable with the person you are trusting with your smile. Do they explain all symptoms and procedures? Do they listen to your concerns and answer all of your questions?
- Qualifications. You can get information about a dentist’s qualifications from your local dental society or your insurer. It’s also a good idea to see what special qualifications your dentist may have.
Once you’ve done your homework, ask around. What do family and friends say? What about online reviews?
