Finding The Right Dentist For You And Your Family

Posted on July 27th, 2017 by Dr. Peter Tomaselli

Are you looking for a new dentist? Perhaps you are unhappy with your current dentist, perhaps you have moved across town or maybe you have recently moved to Chicago. Whatever the reason, the decision you make when choosing your Old Town Chicago dentist is something that should be done with a great deal of thought. You will want a dentist that you feel comfortable with, you will want a dentist that is affordable and you will want a dentist that provides the highest caliber services. As your oral health is extremely important, you can easily see how choosing the right dentist matters.

Regular dental visits are important

The ADA conducts frequent surveys, and they found almost half of the adults included in the survey are not getting the care they know they need. There are many reasons given but the most common is a lack of time and a lack of money.

Factors to take into account when choosing a new dentist

Logistics: Logistics are often overlooked but it is an important issue; to make it possible for you and your family to get the dental care you need you should look for:
  • A dentist that is reasonably close to where you live or work
  • A dentist that keeps clinic hours that work well with your busy schedule
  • Close to public transport or close to a parking area
Comfort: Not everyone has a dental phobia but there are many that do. If you are a person that feels anxious even thinking about a dental appointment then look for an Old Town Chicago dentist that makes you feel comfortable. Ask any dentist that you are considering if they offer minimal sedation dentistry to help you during the procedure. A range of services: Of course you can’t expect your new dentist to provide every conceivable dental service, for unique services you can expect to be referred to a specialist. You should, however, expect your dentist to offer a full complement of general dental services as well as cosmetic procedures, wisdom tooth extraction, root canals and dental implants. Once you know what you should be looking for, choosing the best Old Town Chicago dentist does not have to be difficult.
