Finding A Good Dentist
Finding the right dentist for you can seem like a daunting task, especially as there are usually several dental clinics in your area. But, finding the right dentist for you can be made simple with these tips:
Start with the Basics
Choosing a practice that is nearby and easy to get to is a no-brainer, whether this be in your own vehicle or via public transport. It would be of benefit for you to have easy access in an emergency.
Another important point to check is the dental practice’s opening hours. For example, Shifnal Dental Care is open 8am to 8pm most days which means our customers have the flexibility to try and get appointments that are suitable for them and work around their daily lives.
Do I need a specific type of dentist?
Some people have a specific specialty in mind when looking for a dentist due to their needs, but if you don’t have anything specific in mind a general dentist would be the best option for you.
Most people go for general dental practices, as these offer a great range of services from cosmetic to family dentistry.
Would my friends and family recommend Shifnal Dental Care?
Your friends and family wouldn’t stay with their dentist if they weren’t happy and comfortable with them and the service they have received. So, asking them specifics of what they like about their dentists to give you a better idea of their work.
Also, by asking them how long they have been with their dentist gives you a good idea of how reliable their service and treatments are. However, if they have only ever had check-ups and cleanings take their advice with a pinch of salt, check what Google reviews say.
Check out our Google & Facebook Reviews
If you have managed to narrow down the list of potential dental practices with the recommendations from those closest to you and the dentist’s physical location, then check out their reviews.
Look at the reviews that tell a full story rather than those that just rate them as good or bad. The full story reviews detail people’s experiences with the dentist and their team, giving you a much clearer picture of what it is like to be a patient there.
