Finding the right dentist for you and your family can feel overwhelming. With so many dentists to choose from, it can be challenging to decide. You not only want an experienced and knowledgeable doctor, but one that is kind, compassionate, gentle, and understanding. To make your search easier, here are the top seven things you should consider when looking for a dentist.

EDUCATION

A great atmosphere is essential, but your dentist’s skill, knowledge, and education are even more so. Your general dentist should have a four-year degree from an accredited dental school and be licensed by the territory in which they are located. Specialists, such as orthodontists, periodontists, and oral surgeons, require another two to three-year residency in their focus.

TRAINING

Dentistry is continually improving. That’s why dental office teams must stay current on its changes. To do so, doctors, hygienists, and assistants should continue their education through regular courses and seminars. This way, you’ll know their licenses are up-to-date and trained in the latest techniques and technologies.

SANITIZATION

There’s no excuse for a dental office not to take sanitization seriously. It should always adhere to safety regulations with the utmost disinfecting procedures. Always keep an eye out to see if the dental office is clean and organized. Look for gloves, sterile instruments, dust, dirt, and grime. The environment should always be clean and safe.

ATMOSPHERE

Dental offices shouldn’t feel cold. Instead, they should feel inviting and comfortable as soon as you step through its door. The Ora Dental staff will treat you like extended family and make you feel at home. Just like we’d greet visitors of our own home with a smile and warm welcoming, we will do the same for you. We promise to deliver the best dental care you’ve ever experienced.

COMMUNICATION

Don’t overlook the quality of communication. You should always be kept well-informed, heard, and understood. Be sure to pay attention to how the dentist and his/her team communicate with you during your initial consultation. Are they listening? Focused? Interested? A dentist should always want to know your goals and share a clear path to attaining those goals. You should leave the office with an explained diagnosis and treatment plan with timelines and pricing.
