Checklist for Finding a New Dentist

Dentist Selection

Visiting your dentist regularly is a key component in keeping your healthy smile for life. If you relocate, you’ll need to know how to find a dentist who can meet your needs and deliver the best care. The American Dental Association (ADA) suggests asking neighbors, coworkers, family, and friends if they can suggest affordable dentists in your area. If they can’t, ask your former dentist or your doctor for recommendations. You can also contact your local or state dental societies for help with finding providers or low-cost care options. Before making a final selection, visit several dentists. During your first visit, you should be able to answer the important questions listed below; the answers can help you decide if a dentist is right for you.

  1. Are the office hours and appointment times convenient?
  2. Can you get to the office easily from home or work?
  3. Is the office and exam area clean and organized?
  4. Did someone record your medical and dental history during the visit?
  5. Does the dentist practice and recommend preventative care?
  6. How does the dentist handle emergencies when the office isn’t open?
  7. Were you given clear information about treatment fees and payment options before any procedures were performed?
  8. Is the dentist a member of the ADA?

DMD vs. DDS: Don’t Let the Letters Confuse You

A dentist with the letters “DDS” is a “Doctor of Dental Surgery,” while one listed as a “DMD” is a “Doctor of Dental Medicine.” The two degrees are essentially the same. Both dentists have received identical education and training and are held to the same strict standards.
