How to choose a cosmetic dentist?
If you have just moved, or haven't had an appointment for a long time, a new dentist is in order. Finding the right cosmetic dentist isn't easy however. When searching for a dentist you have to find someone reliable, comforting and most importantly skilled. There are a few factors to keep in mind when looking for the right choice.
Look for Someone Reputable
Find a dentist who you know will be good before you even walk in the door. When you call the office to inquire, ask if the dentist is involved in educating? You might not think these questions are of immediate relevance but they are in fact very important. A dentist who is teaching others is one who is active and involved in the medical community, as well as respected. This is a good place to start building a list of names to investigate. You can ask your physician and neighbors for recommendations as well. It is a good idea to contact a local dentist society as well. They are sure to have some recommendations worth checking out.

Scrutinize their Facilities
For your first visit you should only be scheduling a consultation. Note the quality of the staff and the office. The dentist's team should be doing their best to make you as comfortable as you can be. The staff's temperament is usually an accurate indicator of how the dentist runs things. If the front desk seems like they are just trying to rush you through, it is likely your dentist will have a similar attitude. See to it that the dentist in question is flexible and invested in helping you. If they can't treat you with respect in a consulting session, you won't get any more professionalism out of them when you need serious work done.
Ask if they have a hygienist on the team. A dental hygienist usually performs routine tasks like your regular cleanings. These cleanings involve a full evaluation and managment of your gums and teeth. It is good to ask how long a routine cleaning takes as well. A good cleaning will be at least an hour. Our office containes several registered dental hygienist qualified to assist in all dental cleanings and procedures.
