Article written by Elite Dental Group.

When looking for a good dentist in your area, it usually takes a bit of legwork. But going to the wrong dentist can be costly and painful so it’s important to go ahead and try to get this right from the beginning. Below, we go over a few good ideas to help you get started.

Ask friends on social media. Be sure to specify your area.

Ask co-workers for a recommendation.

Talk to your primary care physician or the local pharmacist.

Ask family members.

Check out the local dental society.

Once you’ve narrowed your list down a bit, do some research online. Look for ratings from past patients. There are apps like Zocdoc where patients can leave honest reviews. These used to be a great source of information but these days, it’s easy to manipulate reviews online so don’t believe everything you read.

Finally, look for the dentists’ credentials. Where did they go to school? Do they list any training since graduating from dental school? A good dentist will stay up to date on the latest procedures.

Once you’ve decided, call and make an appointment. Go in and meet the dentist. Talk about what you need done. Get all the info then think about it for a few days before moving forward. There’s fierce competition these days in the world of dentistry, but lots of good professionals who can help you.
