Research the extent of training and clinical experience that a prospective dentist has, with regards to speciality procedures, before zeroing on anyone.
For example, not all dentists are trained in performing a full array of cosmetic or restorative procedures.
Dental emergencies do happen. Oral trauma and damaged restorations can strike at any time. Therefore it is important to know what sort of resource your dental clinic offers in such emergency cases. For example, some dental services have flexible after hours and weekend appointments, whereas other practices may have limited flexibility.
Is your dentist investing in new technologies to help improve patient experience and enhance the treatments process? Some dentists are hesitant to invest time and money to purchase advanced equipment such as dental lasers, CAD/CAM machines, etc. Although these technologies will not necessarily improve treatment outcome, they can have an impact on certain aspects of the treatment experience such as the amount of chair time or a number of visits required for a given procedure.
Keep in mind that a practice offering cutting-edge technologies may be a bit costly more than a practice offering more traditional treatment options.
Are you an anxious dental patient? Well, you’re not alone. Dental anxiety is common, so pick out one from many practices and consider patient comfort. Pre-medication and nitrous oxide are fairly obvious examples, but some practices go so far as to offer headphones, massage, aromatherapy and more to help put patients at ease.
Ask about what sort of patient comforts the dental clinic offers during your initial consultation.
Most dentists keep a gallery of past patients that includes pictures of their teeth before and after getting treatment. This can be extremely helpful when evaluating the quality of work you can expect from a dentist. If you need cosmetic changes, it can be even more helpful when evaluating all your options, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, etc.
The cost of dental care can fluctuate significantly from person to person and case to case, based on a variety of factors.
For example, a dentist in Alwarpet may charge 40 per cent more for the same treatment performed in areas such as Anna Nagar or Alwarthirunagar. Why? It may cost a clinic significantly more to operate in an area like Alwarpet, and those costs are shared by the patient. Before selecting a given dentist or dental practice, you should be wise to get estimates.
