How to Choose a Dentist

If you are looking for a new dentist in the San Diego area, you have thousands of options. Finding the one that’s right for you can be a challenge. Here’s a few tips to help you find the perfect dentist for you.

What kind of dentist do I want? This is the most important question you have to answer. No one dentist is right for everyone, and deciding what kind of dentist you are looking for is a crucial step to finding the one that’s right for you. Are you looking for a no-nonsense drill-and-fill dentist, or one that takes care in performing dental restorations to ensure functionality and beauty? Are you looking for a cosmetic dentist for a specific procedure, or a dentist that does both general and cosmetic dentistry? Are you looking for a dentist who offers specialized services like neuromuscular dentistry and sleep apnea treatment?

Once you have decided what services you’re looking for, you have to make sure a dentist offers the dental services you want. See what dental services we offer at Strober Dental.

Next, ask how much and what kind of dental education your dentist has. They should be a board-certified dentist, but if you are looking for cosmetic or neuromuscular dentistry, look for one that has specialized training in these areas that are only briefly covered in dental school.

It’s important to look at a dentist’s experience and results. Look at how long a dentist has been in practice, but also try to get a sense of what portion of their practice is the type of services you are looking for. And look at their before and after gallery to get an idea of the quality of their work.

Once you’ve found one or two likely candidates, you can look at online reviews and then schedule a consultation with the dentist or dentists. You can ask any unanswered questions that you were not able to get answers about online or through reviews. You also want to evaluate the atmosphere in the practice and how well you get along with the dentist himself. After all, you hope to be working with this dentist for many years to come–you want to make sure they’re a good fit for you personally.
