Finding the right dentist can be difficult. You’ve probably had dentists in the past that didn’t quite fit the bill. Dentists that weren’t cost-effective for you, were in an awkward location for you to get to, didn’t specialise in the treatment you needed, or that you just didn’t get on with that well personally. That’s why we think it’s important to ask as many questions as you can prior to starting treatment with a new dentist. Here’s our list of things you should know before sitting in the dentist’s chair for the first time.

What Are The Costs?

Dental costs can be high, and it’s important to know the costs before committing to a dentist, particular treatment, or dental plan. When you know that you need to have a root canal, your teeth whitened or tooth decay and gum disease dealt with, you might not have the luxury of waiting for it. A lot of dental problems benefit from being treated as quickly as possible, but it’s important not to rush in! We suggest giving your dentist a call and making the costs one of the first things you ask about, and comparing with local competitors. At Parkfield we may not be the cheapest, but we’re positive that when you choose us you’ll know our worth through our excellent patient care service.

Is It Convenient For You?

When finding a new dentist, you should find out how easy it will be for you to come in for appointments when you need them. A lot of us have busy schedules and it can be difficult to fit important appointments around work and our home life. Before signing up, make sure you know exactly where your dentist’s office is and what its opening times are. Here at Parkfield Dental we are based in Didsbury, Manchester, and you can find all of our contact details and our opening times online.

What Are Your New Dentist’s Credentials?

Knowing your dentist’s credentials is important. Different dentists are adept in different fields of dental care, and it can be an important part of choosing a dentist in line with the dental care you require. Here at Parkfield Dental, all of our dentists are registered with the General Dental Council, a national regulator maintaining standards of patient care and treatment. Each of our dentists have different specialties, ranging from cosmetic dentistry, restorative care, dental implants, and much more!

I have followed Gill around for years...because she is the very best hygienist you'll ever find anywhere. I wouldn't be without her. I have total confidence and she gives endless reassurance re my teeth and gums. What an all round 5* STAR.
I have nothing but praise for Parkfield Dental Practice. I've been seeing Gill for many years and she has helped me keep my teeth and gums in good shape. I always feel confident that I will get the treatment I need when I go to see Jo. Thank you!

Very professional and friendly set up. Gill the hygienist is very experienced as is Mr Smith and on top of that the reception team are ultra efficient - text reminders of appointments as well. Just a really good dentist.

A terrific dental practice. Dr Smith is excellent and has great attention to detail, Gill is a great Hyiegenist and the reception staff are always welcoming. My teeth have never been better.

My partner has been seeing Jo and Gill for years as she had a lot of nervousness about dentists but thinks they are great. I'd not been to a dentist in 10 years but she persuaded me, I saw Dr Shah for a filling and was very happy with his professionalism and manner. I now go regularly like a good patient and would recommend them.
William Davies
I have been seeing Jo for approximately 3 years now. She is very calming and trusting as she works and as someone who is a little nervous at the dentist this is extremely comforting. She has been great with my girls (3 and 5), they in fact LOVE going to the dentist. Her magic wand and chair have them mesmerised!
Beckie Lowe

I had my first consultation today with Dr Shah. He did a very thorough examination and explained his findings and treatment plan clearly with the aid of photographs and x-ray pictures. Given the quality of the service the fees are very reasonable. Highly recommended.

After an accident to my seven year old boy’s adult front tooth, Jo and Jade are the superheroes in his eyes. Thank you Jo and Jade for making his visit relaxing, stress-free and enjoyable. You are simply fabulous!
