Tips for Finding the Affordable Dentist You Need

dca-blog_dentist-selection-family

Selecting a dentist to care for you and your family can be a frustrating task, especially if you’ve recently relocated and aren’t familiar with dentists in the area. Because your oral health directly affects your general health, obtaining excellent dental care is important. Finding an affordable dentist who is accepting new patients isn’t as easy as it might seem. Many factors are involved. If you need specialized care, some dentists may not have the proper experience to treat you. Others may not accept your dental insurance plan. If you have a non-traditional schedule, finding an affordable dentist with flexible office hours can be a challenge. Don’t despair; selecting a dentist can be easier than you think. The following tips can help narrow your choices to the dentists who best meet your needs.

Determine Your Dental Needs

First, be aware that dentists whose titles designate them as doctors of dental surgery (DDS) and those who are known as doctors of dental medicine (DMD) have the exact same qualifications and training. A general dentist may also be called a family or cosmetic dentist. These titles do not reflect official dental specialties. If you are experiencing common symptoms such as tooth or jaw pain, minor bleeding, tooth injury or cavities, you probably don’t need to consult a specialist. A general dentist can assess your specific needs after a comprehensive exam. He or she may be able to perform treatments like wisdom tooth extractions and restorative procedures that specialists also perform.

Ask the Right Questions

Before selecting a dentist, ask each prospective dentist the following key questions.

  • What type of training and experience do you have?
  • How do you handle after-hours or weekend emergencies?
  • What types of sedation options do you offer?
  • What advanced technologies or equipment do you use?
  • What insurance plans do you accept?

Identify Your Local Resources

For information about local dental clinics and dentists, check with your local dental associations, and read online reviews. Friends, neighbors, family members, and coworkers may also be valuable sources of information.
