3 Tips on How to Choose Your New Dentist
Are you planning to move soon? Have you just moved to your new home? Or perhaps you find your current dentist to not be the right fit for you? Are you looking for a new dentist to take care of the health of your mouth and don’t want to (rightly!) wait until an emergency occurs to make your choice? At Clinique Dentaire Champlain in Brossard on the Rive-Sud, we offer you this short list of tips on how to choose your new dentist, so that you may find the rare pearl!
1. Get a recommendation
Before you leave your current dentist, consider asking him or her if he or she has a professional to recommend, whether in your future area or your current one. He or she may also take the opportunity to transfer your file to your new dentist, which would allow the new dentist to know your dental history.
You can also check with your family and friends. Word of mouth is one of the best ways to get an idea of a dentist’s reputation. If no one has a dentist to suggest near your new home, consult the Ordre des dentistes du Québec.
2. Check accessibility
Take the time to locate the location and make sure your dentist is close to your home or work to avoid possible delays. Find out how long it takes to get there. Also, check the opening hours to make it easier to make appointments based on your schedule.
3. Ask questions
Make a list of questions that you can then ask by phone or in person by visiting the clinic you are interested in. Does it provide emergency services? Does it propose financing plans? How quickly can you get an appointment? It is important that your future clinic can meet your expectations in terms of dental care and services.
By contacting the clinic or the dentist directly, you can also get a good idea of the location, the professionalism of the staff and the listening skills of its members. If you go on site, you can also assess the cleanliness and atmosphere of the premises.
