Some Questions to Consider
- Are the office hours and appointment times convenient?
- Do you have special needs?
- Do they have cutting edge technology?
- Will you get clear information about treatment fees and payment options before procedures are performed?
- What happens if you encounter an emergency? And what emergency care services do the dental practice offer?
- What are the available payment options?
- Is the dentist comfortable dealing with dental anxieties? How do they handle nervous patients?
- Do they keep up to date with latest techniques and contemporary dental practices?
- What is the dentist’s educational background and credentials?
- Will the dentist check your children too?
- Do they emphasize “preventive dental care,” “gentle care”, and “family dental care?”
Searching for the Best Dentist in Buderim
- Ask your friends and family if they have a dentist they recommend. Another good choice is to ask your doctor.
- Use tools such as Google, and Yelp to learn what other patients think about potential dentists. Look for reviews that are very specific and tell a story about a dental visit and the dentist.
- Browse potential dentists’ websites to learn more. If the dentist doesn’t have a good website? Then move on, they are not that interested in you.
- Visit! Nothing will tell you as much about a dentist as a visit to the office to meet with the staff and dentist. While there, check out the office and dental surgeries to make sure they are clean and the staff wears proper protective gear and gloves.
- Don’t ignore convenience! No matter how great a dentist might be, if you don’t visit them, they can’t help! Check hours, access, parking, and services. So choose a dentist that it is easy to visit. After all, you will be visiting at least twice a year and don’t need excuses not to visit!
