Three Questions to Ask When Going to a New Dentist
Seeing a dentist on a regular basis—which means at least twice a year for most patients—is important. If you’re switching dentists because of a move, new healthcare, or because you aren’t satisfied with your current dental experience, it’s important that you ask the right questions before settling on a new dentist. Here are three important questions to ask when choosing a new dentist—
Do You Accept My Insurance?
If you have dental insurance, then one of the most important things you should be asking your dentist is whether or not they accept your insurance plan. If you don’t have dental insurance, then the important question to ask is about financing options. At Distinctive Dental Solutions, we know that taking care of your oral health is important, regardless of your budget or your insurance. That’s why we offer a DDS Patient Membership option that helps you to save on preventative services. Reach out to us to learn more.
How Long Have You Been in Practice?
While it can feel awkward to ask, it’s always a good idea to ask a new dentist what their credentials are and how long they have been in practice. If they’ve been in practice for a long time, you should consider reading some client reviews to get a feeling for what other people think. Asking a dentist how long they’ve been in practice is a way of taking your oral health seriously.
Do You Offer Services Relevant to Me?
Finally, don’t forget to ask your dentist if they offer services that are relevant to you—this may be the most important question! For example, if you have had a dental bridge restoration in the past, it’s important that you choose a dentist that has experience with dental bridges. Or, if you have missing teeth and will require dental restoration services, such as dental implants, you should double-check to make sure that your dentist is able to perform these services for you.
