There are a variety of reasons you may be in need of a new dentist. Perhaps you’ve moved to a new town or your former dentist is retiring. No matter the reason, picking the right dentist for you isn’t an easy task. After all, you’re looking for someone you can trust your smile to. At my dental office in Charlottesville, we’d like to give you a few tips that you can follow to ensure you’re picking the right dentist to meet your needs.
Talk to Friends
The best place to start your search for the best dentist for you in Charlottesville is with your friends and family. Find out what they like about their dentists and compare what they say to what you’re looking for. It’s also wise to hop online to check out the practice’s available services, get to know a bit about the doctor, and to get an idea of the office personality.
Pick Up the Phone
Once you’ve gathered information from your friends, family, and the internet, you should have a list of a few dentists you’d like to get to know more about. This is when picking up the phone and making calls to those practices is important. The first phone call can give some insight into the atmosphere of the practice and gives you an opportunity to ask some valuable questions. You’ll want to gather information such as what you should expect during your first visit, how the office handles finances, and the level of training of the staff. Following these calls, you should have a good idea of which dentist stands out to you and who you’d like to investigate in more detail.
Schedule a Visit
Making an initial visit with your top choice is a great way to get to know the office and the dentist in person. Getting into the office and into the dental chair is important to make sure you’re comfortable, ensure that the personality of the doctor compliments yours, and discovering whether the office is clean, friendly, and matches what you’re looking for. After this initial visit, you should have a good idea if this is the dentist for you.
