Finding a great family dentist can save you a lot of time and headache because you and your loved ones can receive dental care at the same practice. But what makes a dental practice a “family dentist” and how do you know if they’re right for you? Thankfully, there are some easy ways you can find the best family dentist in Gorham to meet the needs of all of your loved ones.
Referrals and Recommendations
One of the best ways of finding a good family dentist is to ask your friends and family. They may have had a good experience and can give you their first-hand opinion. You can also look for family dentists that have been practicing in Gorham for many years because it probably means they’re doing a great job.
Google is also a helpful ally here. Although they’re not 100% reliable, Google reviews and comments can be a good way to get opinions on the practice that you’re researching.
Look for the Services They Offer
Many practices have websites that feature what treatments they provide. If you’re looking for a practice that can provide cosmetic services and still restore smiles, then those are some services you should look for. Or, are you looking for a practice that provides orthodontics too? See if they offer Invisalign treatment to straighten out smiles.
It’s important that you find a dentist’s office where your kids are comfortable. Good dental experiences early on make it much more likely they will take care of their oral health on their own as they get older. A family dentist should know how to communicate well with kids as well as how to make them feel comfortable.
You can also visit the practice in person to see if they have a relaxing environment. Or, if you’re schedule is always busy, a lot of practices have a “Tour Our Office” option on their website, where you can give the office a digital walk through.
Ask About Insurance
If you and your family have dental insurance, you should make sure the practice you choose accepts your type of plan. This can be an easy way to eliminate some dentists while focusing on others. Also, if you don’t have insurance but think you’ll be getting it in the future, you can choose a practice that accepts a wide variety of insurance plans to keep coverage for your family a possibility in the future.
