What to look for when seeking a new, quality dental practice

Regardless of if you are considering a change or are new in town, finding a new dentist can be overwhelming. Many patients might not know where to start when it comes to seeking out a reliable, quality, affordable dentist or dental team. Dr. Gonzalez comes routinely referred by word of mouth in the area of Pembroke Pines, FL for good reason!

What to look for in a quality dental practice

Below are just a few things to look for when seeking a new dental facility for you and your family’s dental health and wellness:

  • Reputation. Word of mouth is one of the easiest ways to find a dependable, friendly dentist in the area. Ask your friends, post a question in a local Facebook group, or even read online reviews of local dentists to get an idea of their clientele and how well they treat them.
  • State Dental Board claims. In the United States, every state has a state board of dentistry where you can look up a dentist and find out if they have any claims against them. This is one way of checking a dentist’s licensing, reliability, and trustworthiness quickly and easily.
  • Location. Just as real estate agents say, “location, location, location!” If your dental office is not conveniently located by your home, school, or work, it can be more difficult to get there on a regular basis or in emergency dental situations. Make sure you look for dentists within a few miles radius of the places you spend the most time to make it easier to get in for appointments.
  • Acceptance of new patients. Not every dental practice accepts new patients, as they may be busy taking care of their current ones. Look for a dentist who is able to take on new patients before considering them as a new provider for you or your family.
