Choosing the Ideal Dentist for Your Needs

Dentist Selection

Seeing a dentist at least twice a year is critical to your overall dental health, now and in the future. A relationship with a dental professional is one of the most important healthcare connections you will ever make, so it really does pay to be diligent in your search for the best possible fit. If you are among those who have been stymied on the topic of how to find a dentist who really suits your needs, the following information should be helpful.

Several useful pointers have been compiled by the American Dental Association (ADA) to help you start building a list of prospective dentists in Baltimore. A good first step is to review the MouthHealthy.org website and use its Find-a-Dentist feature. It is also a good idea to ask for personal recommendations from friends, family, and colleagues. Your personal physician or local pharmacist may also be willing to provide you with trustworthy referrals to dentists.

Narrowing the list of potential candidates can be challenging, and it makes sense to speak to multiple dentists before making your final choice. Not every practice is a good fit for every patient, so it is important to consider things such as proximity of the office to your home or business, whether the dentist has office hours that suit your schedule, and whether you find the environment to be neat and clean. Try to learn more about each dentist’s philosophy regarding preventive dentistry to see if it meshes with your own.

Ask questions about fees for common procedures and whether or not the dentist is willing to establish payment plans for particularly costly or unexpected dental work. It also is important to determine whether a prospective dentist accepts your dental insurance plan.

When comparing affordable dentists in your area, you may be wondering if there is a difference between dentists with DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) or DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) after their names. They are essentially the same designation, and dentists with either credential have completed the same degree of study and clinical training and have passed stringent written exams and licensing requirements. Furthermore, all dentists must complete continuing education classes throughout their careers to stay current with treatment techniques and innovations.

To get the dental care you deserve from an affordable dentist in Baltimore, call Dental One Associates at Beltway today at (410) 775-5536 or make an appointment.
