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!
