When you are looking for a top dentist in Pike Creek, it’s not a matter that should be taken lightly. After all, choosing the right dentist can have an impact on the oral health and overall well-being of your entire family!

Here are some tips on what to look for.

#1—Read Online Reviews

More and more people are turning to online reviews when they make a purchasing decision—and that includes healthcare. The top three sites for reviews are Yelp, Google, and Facebook, so be sure to check them out and see what patients have to say about the practice.

#2—Location and Hours

If going to the dentist isn’t as convenient as possible, you may find yourself postponing dental appointments. Find an office near home, work, or school, and make sure the hours fit your family’s schedule.


Although cost shouldn’t be a barrier to getting quality dental care, it is a consideration. Before choosing a dentist, find out if the dental clinic accepts your dental insurance. If you don’t have insurance, find out what their payment options are or if they have an in-house discount program to help keep care more affordable.


Let’s face it: Going to the dentist isn’t much fun. But with today’s modern dental technology, treatment can be quicker and less invasive. Your dentist should have enough of the latest dental technology to make you feel assured that they are keeping up with the latest in dental treatment. If the practice hasn’t updated their tech in a decade, it might be best to move on to the next potential dentist on your list.


Find out what services the dentist offers and see if they align with what you and your family are likely to need. If you know you want to brighten and whiten your smile, you may want to consider a cosmetic dentist. If you have kids who will need braces soon, find a dentist that offers orthodontic treatment.
