Once you’ve got a list of potential candidates, we recommend doing a bit more research.
Location, Location, Location
Find a dentist that is located near your work, home, or school. This will make going to the dentist convenient, which is important with today’s busy schedules.
Financial and Insurance Policies
Find a dental practice that will submit to your insurance company on your behalf, if you have insurance, you may want to opt for an office that has an in-house plan or takes third-party financing.
Research the practice website and see if they offer any introductory specials for new patients.
Will the services offered by the practice meet you and your family’s needs in the years to come?
