Top 5 Things to Look for in a Dentist

Romeoville Dental Center

Are you in search of a new dentist? Here are the top 5 things to look for in a dentist.

1. Understand Your Dental Health Insurance

It’s vital that you understand your dental health insurance before you select a dentist. By understanding what your plan covers and whether or not you can go outside your network, you’ll be able to narrow your search. You can even check your dental insurance provider’s website to find dentists in your network in your area or use the ADA’s Find-A-Dentist tool. You can even access a list of local dentists who belong to dental professional associations like the ADA. Romeoville Dental Center is very insurance friendly, and our team is happy to file and track your claims. Give us a call to find out if we accept your insurance.

2. Get Recommendations From Friends & Family

One of the best ways to find a new dentist is through friends and family. Getting a recommendation from someone you know and trust will make you more comfortable with the selection process and will help narrow down your results from your initial online search. Once you have a good list from your research and your network, do further research by going on their websites and looking at their social media pages.

3. Determine Which Work Best with Your Lifestyle

Another big factor in selecting a dentist is convenience and ease. If a dentist is an hour in the opposite direction of your home, you’re probably not too likely to visit them. What if you anticipate needing orthodontic work or teeth whitening treatment? You’ll need to ensure your prospective dentist provides the services you think you’ll need. If you work a 9 to 5 job, you’ll need a dentist that’s in the office outside these hours. These are all questions that you should answer so that you can further narrow down your list to just a few dentists.

4. Meet Prospective Dentists

Once you’ve narrowed down your list enough, call or visit a few before you make an appointment. This is a great way to get a sense of the practice and find out what treatments the office provides. You can take this opportunity to ask questions like how far in advance do you need to schedule a regular cleaning, or how does the practice handle emergencies that are outside office hours. This is a great way to familiarize yourself with the dentists, as well as help the dentists get to know you and your dental needs.

5. Evaluate the Dentists

After your research and interviews, you should be able to make a decision. Make sure that your dentist is someone who can motivate you and who you trust to handle your dental issues. Pick someone that offers the treatments you need and who you felt comfortable with.

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
