Evaluating Your Dentist

Evaluating Your Dentist: Is It Time to Make a Change?

Is your dentist no longer meeting your expectations, or is he or she unable to provide you with the services you require? If you do not feel satisfied with the care you have been receiving from your current dentist, it may be time to make a change. Here are a few important qualities to look for before reaching out to a new dentist.

 

1. Attentiveness

A quality dentist will always be attentive to your needs and wants. If a dentist doesn’t listen carefully to your questions and concerns, it is time to move on.

 

2. Experience

When searching for a quality dentist, make sure he or she has plenty of experience and training. With a Doctor of Dental Surgery from a respected university and more than 27 years of experience practicing dentistry, Dr. Stanley J. Lis and Dr. Joshua S. Bronner are a highly respected and experienced dental professionals.

 

3. Ability to Meet Your Needs

A good dentist will have the knowledge and ability to meet your dental needs. Whether you need a routine teeth cleaning or an intricate root canal, your dentist should be experienced in providing a wide variety of treatments.

 

4. Cutting-Edge Technology

If your current dentist prefers to cling to outdated treatment techniques, it may be time to look for someone who embraces the benefits of technology. Advances in dental technology can not only minimize your discomfort as a patient, but can also increase your chances of having a positive treatment outcome.

 

5. Friendliness

The best dentists are those who are friendly and know how to help you feel at-ease in the treatment chair. If your dentist is grumpy or abrupt, you may have a more pleasant treatment experience if you look for someone more personable.
