3 Questions to Ask Your New Dentist

August 31, 2023 3:41 am

It’s normal for patients to have questions about their oral healthcare. Below, we highlight 3 helpful questions you should ask a new Woodbridge dentist so you can receive the dental care you need.

What Services & Treatments Do You Offer?

The first and most crucial question to ask your new dentist is about the range of services and treatments they provide. You’ll want your new dental practice to offer a wide array of dental services, including routine dental checkups and cleanings and restorative procedures like fillings and crowns. You may even benefit from cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening and specialized services like orthodontics or dental implants. By understanding the full scope of their offerings, you can determine if the practice is equipped to address your unique dental needs.

What Is Your Approach to Patient Care & Comfort?

Comfort and trust are vital aspects of any doctor-patient relationship. Inquire about the dentist’s approach to patient care and how they prioritize patient comfort during treatments. A dentist who takes the time to listen to your concerns, explains procedures thoroughly, and offers modern pain management techniques will ensure a more relaxed and pleasant experience. Additionally, ask about any amenities or sedation options they offer to help alleviate anxiety, especially if you or a family member experience dental phobia.

What Are Your Payment & Insurance Options?

Before committing to a new dentist, inquire about their accepted payment methods, financing options, and whether they work with your dental insurance plan. A transparent discussion about the cost of common procedures and any potential out-of-pocket expenses will help you plan and budget for your oral healthcare costs.
