Helpful Tips for Finding a Dentist

Dentist Selection

When you need to find a dentist who is part of your insurance plan’s network, a little homework can produce the best results. Before entrusting your dental health to someone you’ve never met, consider asking friends, relatives, and coworkers for their recommendations. If you’re new to the area and don’t know anyone, finding the best affordable dentists can be a challenge, but the following tips can help you narrow your selections to qualified dentists who meet your family’s needs.

The first step in finding a dentist in Haverford is to determine your basic priorities. Ask yourself the following questions about prospective dentists to weed out those who don’t meet your criteria.

  • Is the dentist convenient to my home, work, or school?
  • Does the dentist meet my specific requirements, such as offering conscious sedation or providing handicap accessibility?
  • Does the dentist participate in my insurance plan?
  • Does the dentist offer payment options for out-of-pocket expenses?

Once you’ve narrowed your selection to several local dentists in Haverford, ask more specific questions about each dentist. You can conduct most of this research over the phone, and it will be a good way to determine if a clinic’s office staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful.

  • What education, credentials, and experience does the dentist have?
  • Does the dentist offer the latest advanced treatments and technologies?
  • What can I expect during the first appointment?
  • Will the dentist discuss my options and procedure costs before performing any work?
  • How does the dentist handle after-hours and weekend emergencies?

When you’re satisfied with the answers from a particular dentist, make an appointment. The first visit will determine if you feel comfortable with the dentist and office staff. You should be at ease with your chosen dentist, so if you aren’t satisfied, don’t compromise.
