There are many aspects to consider when choosing a family dentist. Firstly, you need to ensure your dental practice will offer the right treatments for your needs. Understanding what you want from your dentist, including if they provide a comfortable environment and high-quality service, is important. Here are some tips to aid you in your decision.
What does the family dentist offer?
Not all dental clinics offer the same services; some specialise in certain surgeries or cosmetics, and others general practice. When considering a family dentist, you should consider the needs of yourself, your partner, and your children. Most practices will offer general oral health services such as check-ups and cleans and teeth fillings. However, you may find it convenient to access services such as teeth whitening, sleep dentistry, dental implants, extractions, dentures under one roof as your lives change
Does the dentist practice feel friendly and comfortable?
It’s important for you and your family to feel welcomed and safe at the dentist as it can be quite a daunting occasion for many, especially children and people who have had a previous bad experience. The care and attention to detail in ensuring the environment puts you at ease can often reflect the quality of service and expertise you will receive. Feeling comfortable at the dentist is essential as you are less likely to be tempted to miss dental appointments and begin to foster a positive culture of good oral hygiene for your children.
What do reviews of your dentist practice say?
By doing your research on social media and reviews, it’s easy to see what others have to say about a family dentist without leaving the house. Reviews left by customers on search engines such as Google can be a valid indicator into the overall experience. Highly rated reviews will allow you to understand what the dentist does best, whether it’s expertise, service or environment and less favourable responses will also assist in determining your own decision for what suits your needs. We are both proud of our five-star reviews and honoured that our customers wish to spread the word about their positive experience.
Once you’ve found your family dentist, ensure to make regular appointments for checkups for the whole family. Your dentist may recommend a dental check-up every 6 months, or more regularly if dental work is required. You family dentist is always there to answer any questions you have about your teeth or oral health.
