There are lots of reasons people seek out a new dentist. Maybe you’ve moved to a new neighborhood or a new town. Perhaps you changed insurance plans. Maybe your colleague bragged on his brighter smile, and shared the dentist’s name with you. Maybe your partner’s teeth grinding has been more noticeable and you are becoming more concerned. Whether your trusted dentist retired or for any other reason, if you are seeking a dentist accepting new patients in Riverside CA, consider these factors as you consider your choices.
Checkups and cleanings, and other types of preventive care are the regular habits that (we hope) bring you routinely into the office. A caring staff, with years of experience, will make these twice-yearly visits a valuable tool in keeping your oral health at its best. If you (or your child) needs orthodontic services, you will want to make sure your new dentist handles that speciality. If your smile needs some help, ask about cosmetic options, and spend a few minutes looking at the smile gallery.
Cost and Payment Options
Whether you have insurance through your work, private insurance, or are planning to pay with cash or a credit card, look for payment options that work for your budget. Check to see if there might be a new patient special, for extra affordability as you meet the dentist, and bring all your dental records up to date.
No one should pick a dentist on convenience alone, but it’s hard to argue that it’s not a factor. Is your new dentist close to your home or office? Can you take care of paperwork online? Is there plenty of convenient parking? Appointment times compatible to your schedule? Are the waiting rooms restful, with options like wifi, coffee and tea, magazines and warm blankets? Many, or all, of these factors should be considered when making a decision.
