Finding an Affordable Dentist You Trust

dca-blog_dentist-selection-family

When it comes to your dental health, choosing a dentist is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. It’s worth taking your time to find a provider you trust. Discounts may be alluring, but you shouldn’t base your choices on price alone. When you find the right dentist, your exams and procedures will go more smoothly, and you’ll suffer less anxiety during routine visits. Don’t wait until your teeth hurt to seek professional dental care. Start looking for a dentist before you need one, so you can enjoy better dental health for life.

Choosing a Dentist or a Dental Specialist

A little background information can help you when you’re choosing a dentist. Both general dentists and specialists receive four-year doctorates in dentistry. They may refer to themselves as doctors of dental surgery (D.D.S) or doctors of dental medicine (D.M.D). There are no differences between the degrees.

However, dental specialists receive additional training and often limit their practice to their specialty. Types of dental professionals who specialize in more specific areas of dentistry include endodontists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists and prosthodontists. If you need to see a specialist, your general dentist will refer you to one. Always feel free to discuss your preferences or needs when receiving a referral. Your dentist knows that your comfort level is important, and he or she will work with you in choosing a dentist who’s the perfect fit.

How to Find an Affordable Dentist

You don’t need to rely on ads to find an affordable dentist. Not every dentist spends money on advertising. Try calling your local providers and requesting prices for specific procedures and exams. Find a general dentist to conduct a thorough exam and treat basic dental problems like gum disease, tooth decay, or problems with dentures.

To get the dental care you deserve from an affordable dentist in Thorndale, call Gentle Dental of Thorndale today at (610) 590-1798 or make an appointment.
