How do you know if you are finding the right dentist? A great dentist?
At Sam Carroll, DMD, we have considered what goes into making a dental office great—and we do our best to provide that for our patients.
What to Look for in a Dentist
All dentists want to help their patients, but how many have listening skills along with dental skills? It’s important to take the time to listen to a patient’s concerns, particularly if they are feeling uncomfortable.
It is also important that a dentist take the time to educate patients. Patient education is one of the best ways to ensure that people know how to maintain their oral health properly.
Finding a dentist who respects your time means you will not spend wasted minutes languishing in a waiting room. A dentist who respects your resources is just as talented; no one wants recommendations for costly treatment that isn’t necessary.
You also want a dentist who takes the time to get to know you as a person and who knows your history. After all, you want to build a long-lasting relationship with your dentist after you choose one! Your time in the dentist’s chair is not a one-time thing.
What to Look for in the Office
If your dentist’s office isn’t neat, clean, and orderly, this should be a red flag. Cleanliness is essential to avoid the spread of germs to you and your family.
Having high-tech dental equipment means not only does your dentist keep up on the latest in the profession, but it usually means you will spend less time in the dentist’s chair.
