Choosing the Right Dentist
Visiting the dentist is often a stressful time and may cause you to put off making a much-needed appointment.
If you’ve been struggling with dental problems like cracked, chipped, discoloured or crooked teeth for years, the sooner you get professional dental care, the better.
Many people are plagued with thoughts such as:
- I know I need to see a dentist but who should I see?
- What about the cost?
- What about the time it’s going to take to get my treatments done? How am I going to fit it in with work, family and other commitments?
If this sounds like you, then it’s time to find yourself a friendly, professional dental clinic that suits your needs and makes you feel comfortable, but that’s often easier said than done.
Asking the Right Questions
To help you find the right dentist, ask yourself these questions and answer them truthfully.
What type of dental treatment are you looking for? Are you happy with a quick and cheap fix that won’t last, or do you expect a quality treatment that takes care of any problems permanently?
How do you regard your teeth? Are they just something to chew with that will deteriorate as you age or do you believe good dental health means good general health and those teeth should last a lifetime?
What quality of dentistry do you expect? Do you want an impersonal and inferior service or a premium service where you and your dentist build a professional relationship with a lifelong dental plan?
Do you want expert advice and information on what dentistry you are receiving, your choices, and where those choices will take you?
Not All Dentist Clinics are Created Equal
Many dental practices are preferred providers, in other words, they are contracted or aligned with one or many health providers or they are a chain that’s owned by a large corporation. Their decision for treatment is often influenced by third party companies.
They see numerous patients a day and the quality of the dentistry is often inferior, and the services rushed. There have been reports of practices cost–cutting through infection control, low-quality products and using cheaper overseas sources for cosmetic crowns, bridges and veneers.
However, these dental clinics provide an excellent service for those who seek sub-standard dental work. Treatments that won’t last but meet the immediate needs of the patient at a lower price.
A private dental clinic will always provide long and comprehensive consultations, tailor–made treatment plans and the dental practitioners have the expertise to complete the dental treatment with minimal visits and extreme care.
They pride themselves on providing consistent, optimal dental services while taking the time to listen to your concerns and work with you to achieve the best outcome.
