How To Pick The Right Dentist For Your FamilySeptember 10, 2018
You know that dental health is a crucial part of your overall wellbeing, so when it comes to picking a dentist for your family, you want the best possible option. What should you consider when choosing a dentist?
First, it’s helpful to find a dentist who is comfortable and experienced caring for both adults and children. With a practice trained in both pediatric and adult dentistry, there is no need to take your children to a different practice or worry about when they will “graduate” to a new dentist. At Sky Dental, we are experienced working with both adults and children, and sensitive to your children’s specific needs. This provides a comfortable and convenient environment that truly offers a sense of community.
Secondly, you should consider what services you want your dentist to offer. Preventative care is the cornerstone of good dentistry, so ideally you’ll never have a need for restorative dental procedures like crowns or root canals. However, when problems do occur, you’ll want a dentist with experience who uses the most up-to-date materials and technology. For example, in our office, we use natural-looking, biocompatible porcelain crowns instead of silver ones. We also offer whitening to make you as confident in your smile as possible.
A good family dentist provides education to the entire family on the importance of regular dental care and responsible dental hygiene. We know that comfort is key, so it’s important to us to establish a relationship with all of our patients. Not only do we explain concepts like preventative care, fillings, and gum health in adult and kid-friendly terms, we also provide counseling on issues like nutrition and dental anxiety.
Finally, you should consider whether a potential dentist accepts your insurance. Does your preferred clinic participate in your dental PPO plan or offer other reasonable payment plans for more extended dental services such as orthodontics? At Sky Dental, we believe that cost shouldn’t be a factor keeping you or your loved ones from receiving the highest-quality dental care.
