Are you in need of a new dentist? Whether you’re new in town, have changed insurance carriers or are searching for a dentist for some other reason, we have some tips to help you find just the right one.
Here are four things you need to consider before picking the perfect dentist:
Location, Location, Location
During your dental search, ask yourself if it makes sense for your dentist to be closer to home or if you’re more likely to make an appointment during your lunch break. If you have kids, you may consider an office close to your child’s school for easy after-school access. Determine what best fits your busy schedule so that a check-up never becomes a burden.
Your (Plan) Type
While you can always choose to see any dentist, you’ll have the lowest out-of-pocket costs when you see a dentist that accepts your benefits plan. If you’re a Delta Dental subscriber, find a dentist that participates in your plan by using our desktop search tool or the Delta Dental mobile app.
The Daily Specials
Do you require a dentist who boasts more than the basics, such as somebody who’s an expert in certain restorative treatment? Or do you need a dentist dedicated to pediatric or senior care? Those specialties matter.
Access and Availability
Are you able to squeeze in an appointment during the 9 to 5 grind, or do you require someone with late night and weekend hours? Work with a dentist who can fit into your schedule, not the other way around.
Also consider emergency care, as dental trauma can happen anytime.
