Looking for a new dentist? It’s easy to find one. A quick Google search, a Yelp review or two, and you’ll have a short list of possibilities. The trick is finding a dentist you’re happy with! At The Dental Design Center in White Plains, we’re proud of our positive online reviews.
Even so, knowing whether a dentist is right for you can be a little tricky. What traits should you look for? There are a lot of factors that come into play. Do you choose a dentist near your home? By experience and education? Or maybe because a friend recommended a practice?
What To Look For
It may not be an exact science. But here are some of the things we think you should look for when trying to find a dentist:
- Convenient Location? Location is always a factor when choosing a dentist. That doesn’t mean choosing the dental practice closest to your home, though. You may be willing to drive a little further for a better experience.
- Do You Feel Comfortable? Chairside manner is critical. Whether it’s a general dentist, a pediatric dentist, or some other specialty, a good dentist will listen to your concerns and address any issues you might raise.
- Specialty? Dentistry is complex, and always changing. A good dentist is going to specialize, and is committed to staying on top of innovations and developments. A desire and willingness to improve is a trait to look for.
At The Dental Design Center in White Plains, we strive for excellence and want our patients to have a positive experience, and great dental health. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. We would love to see you in our office for a cleaning and checkup soon!
