How to find your new dentist


Have you just moved to a new area and you aren’t exactly sure how to go about finding a new dentist? If the answer is “Yes” then you should know that it doesn’t have to be difficult when you remember these quick tips to help you make a decision, so read on to find out more.

Work or daily schedule

One of the first things to think about is how easy it will be to fit in an appointment around a busy life or work schedule. Ideally you will want a dentist that has opening hours that are flexible enough to suit your schedule. Of course this will not always be this easy depending on your individual schedule, but the reality is that you should not be seriously inconvenienced when you need to visit the dentist and you should definitely take this into account.

Ask around

The best people to ask about a new dentist are the people that you know in your new area. Friends and family are of course the first step in giving you an unbiased view of a good dentist that can suit your lifestyle. Word of mouth with dentists can be a very powerful thing, so it is a great idea to ask somebody and this could be anyone ranging from your colleagues to your neighbours.

Family situation

Your family situation is an important consideration when it comes to a new dentist, particularly when you have to consider taking your family to the dentist. It is obviously much more convenient to take them all the same dentist, so it is much better with the whole family going to the same place. This will save you time and you may even be able to coordinate their visits at the same time and you can speak to dentists to see if this might be a possibility.


An important aspect of finding the right dentist for you is also about them having the right services for you too. Obviously it is much better to get all your dental needs taken care of in one place rather than going to several different locations. For example, if you have braces, but your dentist only offers general dental.
