Dr. Michael J. Landry of Consultants in Dental Aesthetics Advises on How to Choose a Dentist
For anyone who’s new to the area, unhappy with his or her dental provider or just doesn’t have a dentist yet, it is time to make the call to a dentist. More and more research indicates that oral health can adversely impact one’s overall health.
“You and your dentist will be long-term oral health care partners; therefore, you should find someone you can be comfortable with,” said Dr. Michael J. Landry, of Consultants in Dental Aesthetics. “To find a suitable dentist to meet your needs, consider asking the following questions or visiting their website, if they have one, (most established practices will have a website) as a starting point.”
According to Dr. Landry, there are a number of things to consider in choosing the right dentist or dental team. First is if the office hours are convenient in the patients’ schedule and if the office is easy to get to from work or home. Second is to know where the dentist was educated or trained, how often the dentist attends conferences and continuing-education workshops, and how the dentist will approach preventive dentistry. Third is to learn what type of anesthesia the dentist is certified to administer. Fourth, seek out information about all fees and payment options before treatment is scheduled and find out if there is a financing available for out-of-pocket expenses. Lastly, check the condition of the facility, the way the staff takes care of themselves, if the office appears to be clean, neat and orderly, along with the equipment for the treatment, and be sure that the dentist and staff wear gloves and other protective gear during patient treatment.
