Moving to a new city and learning to navigate the area can be a bit overwhelming and stressful. While starting over can be exciting, it comes with it’s own unique set of challenges. Once you get settled into your new house, you’ll want to find your go-to grocery store, dry cleaners, and local coffee shop so life can start to feel normal again. Another important thing to locate is your neighborhood family dentist. Staying on top of dental appointments even in the midst of moving can help prevent cavities and other oral health concerns for you and your family.

Below Dr. Nack discusses five ways to locate a trustworthy family dentist.
Use the Internet
One of the first ways to locate a family dentist in your area is using a search engine, such as Google. At the click of a button, you can find just about anything you need, thanks to the World Wide Web. Simply type in “family dentist” and the area you live in and hundreds of options will pop op. While the results may seem overwhelming at first, start looking at the reviews and star ratings to narrow down your options. Then click on the potential dentist’s website and start reading about their experience and the types of services they provide. This will give you a good idea of what to expect.
Ask your neighbors and co-workers which dentist they use and recommend. While online reviews are helpful, knowing someone firsthand who has received care from a potential dentist is even better. You can usually expect to receive an upfront and honest opinion from someone face to face. If you know them well enough, you may even ask to view the type of work they’ve had done, especially if it was restorative or cosmetic treatment.
Trust Your Gut
After you have read reviews and asked around, schedule a consultation to meet the potential dentist. This is where the rubber meets the road and you can start asking your questions. We recommend coming to your appointment well prepared with a list of questions including:
- What types of services do you provide?
- Do you provide preventative care?
- Do you perform all treatments in-house, or outsource certain procedures? (This is especially important to know for oral surgeries and dental implants)
- Do you treat all ages?
- How soon can my child start coming?
- What types of insurance do you accept?
- Do you offer payment plans?
A good family dentist will make you feel comfortable, take the time to answer your questions, and spend an adequate amount of time to ensure comprehensive care is administered. If you feel uneasy after meeting with the dentist, this is probably a sign that you should keep looking.
