Questions to Ask When Choosing a Great Dentist
Does the Dentist see the patient at every visit (including the cleanings) to assess the condition of teeth, soft tissue, and gums and to screen for oral cancer? (Some practices allow the hygienists to work alone when the dentist is not even in the office!! Not a good idea in our opinion.)
Are appointment times honored to minimize or eliminate waiting?
Is the Dentist available to handle dental emergencies 24/7? Yes, that's right, Dr. Gladnick is always available to his patients with emergencies twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. His personal cell phone number is made available to all of his patients.
Does the Dentist check in with patients the evening following procedures to assess their level of comfort?
Does the office use digital imaging (x-rays) to minimize your family's exposure to radiation?
Does your Dentist have the latest technology in handpieces to ensure a quiet, comfortable experience for you?
Does your Dentist have a dedicated, enthusiastic staff who will confer with any insurance company to make sure that your procedures are being covered at an optimal level?
Will your child feel comfortable and happy because the entire staff takes the time to make going to the Dentist a happy experience? This happens every time in our office.
Does the dental practice offer entertainment while you are being treated? We provide sitcoms, movies, music – you name it!
Is the office bright, clean, and up to date?
