In the Fairfield, OH area, there are so many dentists to choose from! Our part of the world is always growing and expanding, just like the produce section at Jungle Jim’s! With so many new faces coming and going, how are you ever supposed to know how to choose a great dentist?
It can be tough, especially if you aren’t terribly familiar with dentistry or what a dentist should be like. We want to help you out, because we do understand those things. We have put together a list of five qualities that would make any patient happy to sit in a dentist’s patient chair!
As you go through a dental consultation or appointment, you will have a better idea of what you are looking for. You can even use these suggestions to ask questions when you are getting to know a new dental practice!
A Dentist with Good Things to Offer
All dentists are going to offer to clean your teeth, fill your cavities, and take care of basic restorative and cosmetic procedures. You want to look beyond that. What is this dentist doing that goes above and beyond the call of duty? You’ll want to see the dentist learning new procedures and investing in new tools that will make your dental about easier.
For example, we are one of the only offices in the area that uses a DentalVibe to give painless injections in your gums, but we feel like it’s important for all patients to feel comfortable during all parts of the appointment!
A Dentist Supported by a Great Staff
A great dental staff is an invaluable piece of a great dental office! If your dentist is surrounded by friendly, helpful, caring people, you know that this is a dentist who can be trusted! Plus, you will spend more time interacting with the staff than you will with the dentist, so it’s important that you can build a great relationship with these folks as well.
After all, you shouldn’t trust your smile with grumpy people. That’s how you lose your own smile!
A Dentist with a Comfortable Office
When you walk into a dental office, you are looking for certain things. You are looking for an office that is clean and one that makes you feel at ease from the moment you walk in. In other words, you are looking for comfort! Nice chairs, clean spaces, and very clean patient rooms!
If an office atmosphere makes you feel stressed out, it’s not the place for you!
A Dentist Who Improves Your Smile
This may seem obvious, but your smile should be improving after your appointments! You would be surprised by the number of patients we see who had a dentist that absolutely ruined their teeth! Poorly made crowns, botched fillings, and missed diagnoses are unacceptable! When you are seeing a great dentist, your smile will be brighter and healthier!
A Dentist Who Encourages You
You should never walk away from a dental appointment more worried than when you walked in! If a dentist bullies you, makes you feel shameful for your teeth, or ignores your concerns completely, you are NOT in the right dental office!
You should walk away with a smile on your face because you were heard and feel confident that your teeth are in great hands.
