Today in the blog, we discuss things to look for when seeking a new dentist.
Having a family dentist means you have a trusted place to go for routine check-ups, procedures, and emergencies. Like a family physician, your dentist becomes a long-term health partner, so you should pick a team that you’re comfortable with.
Top Things To Look For When Seeking A New Dentist
One easy way to pick a dentist is to choose a member of the American Dental Association (ADA). Choosing an ADA member means choosing a dentist who is up-to-date on the latest information and resources. Furthermore, they uphold the highest professional ethics and standards and put their patient’s health and well-being first.
See more about those ethical standards here.
As you will see, Dr. Scott E Schwartz, Dr. Bard Levey, and Dr. Paul Taxin are active ADA members.
The Basics For Choosing the Right Dentist
Here are some basic things to look for when seeking a new dentist:
- How does the dentist approach dentistry?
- Is the office comfortable and welcoming?
- Do they provide adequate attention to each patient?
- Are the dentists experienced, and do they practice continuing education?
- Do they offer cosmetic, restorative, and preventative dentistry options?
- What about emergency treatment?
- Will they provide the latest technologies?
- Are there convenient office hours?
- Is treatment affordable, and do they work with your insurance?
- Are they upfront about costs?
- Is the office convenient to get to from your home or job?
- Can you see the results of their work?
- What do their patients say?
- Do they practice safety and cleaning protocols?
As you can see, in each case, Dr. Scott Schwartz strives to meet your unique needs with advanced technology, quality materials, and a wide range of services. And, for our Spanish-speaking friends, Hablamos Español.
