Choosing a Dentist – Your Important First Visit


Good oral hygiene will help keep your teeth and gums healthy, but seeing your dentist regularly is just as important. When it’s necessary to change providers, it’s important to find a dentist you can trust for excellent care. After conducting your own research and carefully choosing an affordable dentist, your next step is to ensure that you made the right decision. You can find out most of what you need to know during your first visit. Gather your insurance information, claim forms and medical history, and give your new provider a chance to prove he or she is the best dentist for your needs.

The First Visit: What to Look for in an Affordable Dentist

Before you even see the new dentist, you’ll learn a great deal about the practice. Be observant.

  • Is the office or reception area clean and orderly?
  • Is the receptionist friendly and attentive?
  • Did the staff request your insurance or medical information?

Once you meet your dentist, make note of your emotional reactions to him or her. With good chemistry, you should feel confident and at ease. If you feel intimidated or reserved, you may not have found the best dentist for your personality. The dentist and his or her assistants should be willing to discuss any of your concerns in a way that is easy for you to understand. Learn more about your treatment by asking the following questions:

  • How often will my medical history be reviewed and updated?
  • What types of treatment options are offered?
  • What types of anesthesia and sedation methods are available?
  • Will I be regularly evaluated for periodontal disease?
  • Is preventative care provided?

Knowing You’ve Found the Right Affordable Dentist

Your first visit is revealing, but you’ll learn even more on subsequent visits. You’ll know you made a sound decision when you see that you’re being treated with respect and care. Your exams and dental procedures should never seem rushed, and you should never have to wait for long periods without any acknowledgment. Choosing a dentist who takes the time to attend to your needs, answer your questions, and explain every treatment plan thoroughly ensures that you’ve found the best dentist.
