When you’re looking for quality dental care here in Holly, MI, you have a few offices to choose from. The question is, how will you decide on which office to go to? How will you know who is a dentist that can be treated, and who is not?
This is a huge concern for many of our patients, especially those with children. It’s one thing to accept mediocre care for your own smile, but no parent wants to make that decision for a child. After all, the dental care they receive now could very well shape their entire oral health experience!
One of the things that makes this search so difficult is that you are not a dental expert! How do you know if a dentist is doing a good job or just doing enough to get by? We want to help you with that by giving you some things to look for. Below are five signs that you have found a dental office that is worth committing to! Let’s take a look.
A Dentist Who Invests in YOU
You want to see a dentist who invests in you as the patient. This doesn’t mean handing you a free toothbrush when you leave the office, though that is a nice gesture. We are talking about real investments in quality equipment and tools around the office that make your experience better. We are talking about investing time in continuing education courses to learn the latest techniques.
These investments show that you are seeing a doctor who values you as a patient and genuinely wants the best for you and your smile!
A Staff Who Listens to YOU
When you first call a dental office or walk in the door, you should be warmly greeted. This is important, but we think the conversations you have with every member of the staff is important. We are all here to help YOU get the smile of your dreams. If the staff isn’t listening to your questions and concerns, then you’re in the wrong place!
Remember, it’s ok for someone to have a bad day, but it’s not ok for them to take it out on you! An inconsiderate dental staff should not be tolerated.
An Environment Catered to YOU
All aspects of comfort are important during a dental appointment. It’s important that your mouth feels comfortable, but it’s also important that your entire body feels at ease! This begins the moment you walk in the door. You should walk into a dental office that is comfortable and easy on the eyes. You want to see a waiting room and patients rooms that are clean and welcoming.
If you walk into a dirty, unorganized, ugly dental office, your body is automatically on the defensive, and it will be very difficult for you to find a way to relax!
Dental Care that Benefits YOU
Maybe the most obvious part of a great dental office is that the dental care is actually helping you! Your smile is healthier than it was before you came in. You’ve received options for treatment of a problem you have. You feel like you have a plan of action that will keep your mouth healthy for the next six months until you come back to the dental office!
If your smile isn’t blossoming, then you aren’t in the right dental office!
A Great Feeling About YOUR SMILE
The final thing you should be looking for is the way you feel about your smile. When you leave our office, you should have a smile on your face and know that your smile is in good hands! You should feel like you’ve been heard by the dentist and offered care. You should never feel like you’ve been ignored or disrespected.
The way you feel when you leave a dental office is very important. It reflects the overall care you’ve just received, and we think it’s the X factor of a great dental experience.
