5 Key Questions for Your Prospective Dentist

Don't be afraid to ask your prospective dentist and their staff questions before your first visit. It would help if you chose a place that feels welcoming and comfortable for you, as well as a dental practice that can meet your needs and goals for your smile.

Here are a few questions to consider asking your dentist before you schedule your first appointment.

  1. How long has the practice been established?
  2. What kind of technology is the office equipped with?
  3. Does the dentist see children? If so, starting at what age?
  4. What are the office policies on dental emergencies?
  5. What kind of continuing education and training do the dentist and staff participate in?

Asking the right questions will help you get a feel for what the practice culture is like and if it's right for your family's needs.

If you are considering making changes to your smile's appearance, you might schedule an evaluation with your prospective dentist to learn more about their treatment philosophies and ideas. This is a great time to ask all the questions you need to make the right decision about your dental care.
