You are looking for a dentist, and a quick search shows an overwhelming amount of options of dentists near you. How do you know which one to choose? Here are some tips to filter through the many choices to find the best fit for you!

Tips for Finding a Local Dentist

  • Be Specific: are you looking for teeth whitening? Try looking specifically for a dentist that specializes in this service. Are you looking for a dentist for your child? Try looking for a pediatric dentist. It will be easy to find a dentist close to you that offers the service you need, at a location near you.
  • Choose a Specific Area: The world is a big place, you can narrow down options for a great dentist with a specific search.Try looking for a dentist in your area such as Springfield, or Chatham. You can also input your zip code a list of dentists, along with recommendations and other useful information will be available. 
  • Visit the Website: First impressions are important. In order to get a feel for the dentist you may be visiting, go on to their website, browse office photos, read about the dentist, and see what services they offer. This is a great way to get an impression of the dentist and you can get a further feel for if this dentist is right for you. 
  • Emergency Services: Accidents can happen! It is important to consider choosing a dentist that offers emergency services in case there is unexpected dental pain or a last minute appointment is required. Not every dentist offers this, so make sure to confirm if the dentist you choose can help. 
  • Payment: Payment is a major concern for most patients. Ensure that the dentist you choose takes your insurance plan. Some dentists even offer payment plans and can work with you to make sure you get the service you require.  
  • Recommendations: Oftentimes, a neighbor or coworker knows of a great dentist. All you need to do is ask! If you want a professional opinion, ask your physician and other doctors. They will likely be able to lead you in the right direction.
