Choosing the Right Dentist for Your Family

A family smiling together

Choosing a dental office for your family can be an overwhelming or confusing task. This is made even more difficult because of insurance or if you have a family of both adults and children who all need dental care. It can feel impossible to find everything you need in one dental practice! 

  • Ask about insurance and payment plans – One of the first things you should ask about is if the practice in question takes your insurance. If not, you will need to choose whether or not you still want to pursue that option. If you don’t have dental insurance, ask any prospective office about payment plans.
  • Ask about emergencies – Dental emergencies will happen! Ask the dental office about their emergency policy and if they’re flexible enough to fit you at the last minute if you have an emergency. 
  • Talk to the dentist and staff members – Next, schedule a time to visit the practice and talk to the staff. Bring along children to make sure they feel comfortable in the office.
  • Consider location and hours – Lastly, it’s a good idea to ask about the location and hours of the office you’re considering. Make sure the answers to those questions will meet your needs.

When looking for a dentist, be vigilant, and do your research! Don't underestimate the importance of having an established dental home for your family.
