If you are like most people, average care when it comes to your health is just not enough. Finding a truly excellent Aloha dentist takes a little time and research. At Smith Dental, we have put together a checklist of essentials for you to consider when researching dental offices to give you and your family the type of dental care that leaves you smiling.
Experience and reputation – Naturally, an experienced dentist will know how to perform both simple and complex procedures. Other factors such as continuing education and technology should also be part of your interview process. Having an experienced dentist who continually improves their skills with additional training will help you receive the latest and greatest that modern dentistry offers.
Practice philosophy – Is the practice focused on quality or volume? Each patient should have the time they need to discuss their concerns with their dentist and any goals for their smiles such as whitening or other cosmetic improvements.
Hours and location – Do the hours for the dental practice make it easy for you to make arrangements around work or school? Having a conveniently located practice is also essential to maintaining good oral health.
Insurance and payment plans – If you have insurance, does the practice accept your plan and file your claims for you?
Emergency options – Dental emergencies can happen to anyone. Will your dentist be able to see you promptly, especially if you are in pain?
Advanced procedures – Constant referrals to a specialist can be difficult, especially if you are seeking dental implant or orthodontic treatment. Having a dentist that completes many types of advanced procedures can save you time and money. Plus, it’s nice to have the care you need with the dentist with whom you have already developed rapport and trust.
