3 tips to help you choose a great dentist
Posted on February 16
Maintaining your dental health is an essential part of everyday life. Eating, drinking and smiling all contribute to an active and enjoyable lifestyle that we often take for granted.
So surely choosing the right dentist to look after your pearly whites is an important decision that one should not take lightly?
This is where the matter of choosing a private dentist comes into play. The relationship between you and your Dentist is one that could last for years to come, it is imperative to conduct proper due diligence.
Here are three tips to help you choose a great Dentist for your teeth and dazzling smile;
1> Read customer reviews
Reviews are an instant and proven way to get a true insight in to how a dentist operates. Go online and read up reviews in your area. Make sure you do your homework. From reviews you will discover people like you in the local area who have used a particular service; either loved it or disliked it and subsequently gone online to write about their experiences.
When you read reviews, you can have an idea of what to expect. Are they caring? Do they cater for nervous patients? What type of staff do they have available? Would you be comfortable with them?
Kingsclere Dental Practice has real people talking about their life changing experiences on Google, Facebook and on regular patient surveys which are published on our website. We are very proud of our reputation and you can discover extraordinary reviews on Google and Facebook below:-
2> Visit the dental practice and meet the staff
This is taking it a step further than just reading reviews. If you have time to go see the office, interact with the staff, and talk about important areas such as the payment structure, timeframe for results and any other questions you may have. This way, you will have a better understanding of how the Dentist operates and whether you would like to make him your personal dentist.
At Kingsclere Dental Practice in Alton we welcome anyone to visit us to check out our lovely practice and meet the team. If you would like to come and take a look for yourself, give us as call on 01420 82365.
3> Be upfront about Finance options
Some dentists can offer financing, or sometimes even an in-house payment plan. Implants and other cosmetic procedures can be expensive so you might want to make sure you can spread out the cost of your cosmetic procedures.
With this mind we have also launched two membership initiatives, the Essentials and Care dental plans that our savvy patients find both affordable and practical.
Becoming a member gives you peace of mind and covers you for your annual assessments and hygiene requirements as well as insurance cover for emergency dentistry, keeping your oral health in top condition. You even get members only discounts on treatment, or full cover - the choice is yours.
