Tips for Choosing a New Dentist

Multigenerational Hispanic family sitting together on the lawnFinding a new dental practice that you love can be hard, especially if you haven’t heard any recommendations and you don’t know where to begin. Here are a few things we recommend researching before you choose your next primary dental care provider.

Check Out the Services They Offer

Read through all of the services that a practice provides before you choose them to be your primary dental care provider. If you’re looking for a family dentist, be sure your chosen provider offers children’s dentistry. At Atlantic Dental Partners, we provide dental care for patients of all ages!

If you’re interested in straightening your teeth someday, choose a dental practice that offers orthodontic treatment plans. We offer Invisalign® clear aligner therapy, a clear alternative to braces. 

Read the Reviews

Google and Yelp reviews are not always good indicators of what a business is really like but they can still be helpful. If a dental practice has many two and one-star reviews, you might be better off scheduling an appointment somewhere else. If a practice has a lot of four and five-star reviews that are detailed and mention different amenities and services that you’re looking for, it can be a great way to learn more about a practice. Reviews will not ultimately determine what your personal experience will be like, but they can help you find a great dental practice that fits you and your needs.

Consider Convenience

Some patients will travel far distances just to continue seeing the same doctors that they have seen for years, which we completely understand. If you are searching for a new dentist, however, location is definitely something to consider. You should also look at their office hours, so you can get a better idea of how your schedule will fit with the practice’s schedule. Our Jamaica Plain and Malden dental offices offer evening hours so patients can schedule appointments for after work or school.
