Finding the right health care providers can be challenging, and the same is true of your dentist. You want to find someone you can trust and build a relationship with and not just feel like another number in the waiting room. Here are 3 tips to help you find the top dentists in Bangor.
Of course you want to start with the standard questions such as - "Are the office location and hours convenient for me?" Once you've determined if the practice is a good fit for those needs, don't be afraid to ask deeper questions of your prospective provider such as:
- What types of advanced services do you offer?
- Do you and the staff participate in continuing education?
- Is the office equipped with the latest dental technology?
- Do you see children? If so, starting at what age?
You can also ask the staff questions, which will give you a feel for what it's like to work with the dentist.
Take a Tour of the Office
Consider stopping by to take a tour of the office before your first appointment. This is a good idea if you have children you'd like to bring to the practice. A tour will help you determine if the office feels clean, modern, and welcoming.
Schedule a Consultation
If you're considering repairing your teeth or enhancing the appearance of your smile, it's a good idea to schedule a consultation with your prospective provider. This gives you a chance to ask all of your questions and determine if their philosophies and skill level will meet your needs. Be sure to ask to see before and after photos of patients who have had similar treatment. Most practitioners are happy to share the results of their work with prospective patients.
