Your smile makes a lasting first impression. Keeping your pearly whites clean and fresh is a crucial part of staying healthy overall, as many dental issues can affect other parts of your body. This is why having a great dentist like Dr. de Cardenas is so important!


What Should I Look for in a Dentist?

Like all other medical professionals, you want your dentist to be well-qualified and experienced. Your oral health is as important as the rest of your health, so look for a dentist with the proper qualifications and reviews to match. 


If there are significantly more patients who have had a good experience with that dentist, then there are patients with a bad experience, chances are it’s safe to visit that dentist. Many dentists have reviews online that explain how dedicated, professional, and effective the dentist was with their patients.


Stay away from dentists who have too many reviews that say the dentist did not spend enough time with their patients, did not do a good job, that the office wasn’t clean, etc. Also, it’s extremely important to call ahead and ask about payment options and insurances that the dentist covers. The last thing you want to do is have to foot a much more expensive bill than you planned on.


You should also make sure the dentist can fit your specific needs. Many dentists have expertise in certain areas, such as in geriatric dentistry or pediatric dentistry. Other specialists may focus on cosmetic dentistry or adult dentistry. If you’re looking for a dentist that can serve the whole family, you want to make sure that you find that information ahead of time.


For example, ask if the dentist you’re looking at has limits on which patients they’ll see. If they don’t treat young kids and you want a dentist who does, it’s a good idea to find a dentist who can handle all members of your family, even when your children grow up. You don’t want to have to change your dentist constantly for the next several years.
