While brushing and flossing are essential parts of keeping your teeth healthy, it’s also vital that you see a dentist regularly for a cleaning and exam. A professional cleaning ensures that any extra bacteria or plaque are taken care of, and an exam by a family dentist ensures that there are no serious problems that must be treated. If you don’t have a dentist, we have a few tips to help you find the right one for you and your family.
Consult Your Network of Family and Friends
If you have moved to a new area or are just interested in switching dentists, ask your family and friends if they have a referral. If they have had a pleasant experience with a specific dentist, it’s likely that you will too.
You may also want to ask your family doctor or local pharmacist to refer you to a dentist. Typically, the medical community is connected, and they may have some good suggestions for you.
If you are moving to a new area, ask your current dentist for a recommendation. If they don’t know one in the city you are moving to, they can often consult others to get a recommendation. You can also visit the American Dental Association’s website to learn more about every dentist you visit.
Things to Consider
Even if you love the dentist and the office, it may be difficult for you to see them for various reasons. You’ll want to know:
