Finding the right health care providers is essential, especially when you have a family to think about. Your dentist is no exception. But how do you know which dentist in Portland, OR you can trust? Here are some suggestions to consider when thinking about which dentist might be right for your family.

Ask the Right Questions

You want to work with a dentist you can trust and feel comfortable with, so don't be afraid to ask your prospective dental provider questions. Here are some to get you started:

  • What makes this practice different from others in the area? Do you offer any specialized services?
  • Do you see children?
  • What kind of advanced technology does your office have and how does it benefit me?
  • How does your office handle patients who are anxious or fearful?

Be sure to talk with staff members as well to get a feel for what it's like to work with the dentist.

Stop By for a Tour

Swing by and visit your prospective dentist and take a tour of their dental office. Then take note, does the office look clean, modern, and organized? Does it feel comfortable and welcoming for children? Do they offer any special amenities to help patients feel more at ease?

Schedule a Consultation

Do you need to have a tooth repaired? Perhaps you've been considering enhancing your smile with cosmetic dentistry? Scheduling a consultation with a prospective dental provider is a great way to learn more about their treatment ideas and philosophies. It's also the perfect time to ask all of your questions.

You want to work with a dentist who listens to your concerns and goals for your smile, so make sure your prospective dentist takes the time to learn about you.
