Searching for and choosing a dentist can seem like a daunting task.
It doesn’t have to be if you set some criteria and know what you’re looking for in a dentist.
Studies show that people go to the dentist less than they’d like for many reasons.
For some, it might be dental anxiety or financial reasons. For others, the avoidance could be as simple as a matter of convenience.
To help make your search for the right dentist easier, we’ll cover four factors to consider when choosing your dentist.
This factor is simple yet often overlooked.
The location of your future dentist will make your life either more convenient or more complicated.
Whether close to home or work, avoiding traffic to and from your dentist can make all the difference in keeping those appointments.
If you have children who will also be going to this dentist, choosing a location close to you or their school is important.
A short commute makes visiting the dentist easy.
At Night and Day Dental, we have ten locations with a single goal in mind: to make you love your dental visits.
We offer ten conveniently located offices.
Hours and convenience
Extended hours make all the difference to working people.
Trying to fit a dental appointment into your workday is stressful and inconvenient. That makes office hours the second consideration when choosing the right dentist.
Do the office hours offer flexibility, like early morning or late evening appointments?
Night and Day Dental provides operating hours from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. throughout the week and by appointment on the weekends.
Insurance and finances
Of course, a significant consideration when choosing a dentist is financing. If you have insurance, you’ll want to ensure they accept your provider coverage.
If you don’t have insurance, ask what type of payment or membership plans they offer.
You also want to find a dentist who can give you upfront costs and estimates so that you know what to expect.
It’s important to ask about copays and understand your dental insurance plan, including what services the plan covers and what your responsibility entails.
When comparing fees for different dentists, you can ask the dental practice what standard procedures cost, such as a general oral exam or X-rays.
At Night and Day Dental, we offer several financing options, including our Savings plan…Click to learn more in a new window…
