There are a lot of family dentists to choose from. Are they all alike? Sadly, no. Here are tips from AZ Family Dental on how to choose the right family dentist for your needs.
Location is not just important in real estate. It’s also important for dental clinics. Drive to the clinic first to see if it is easy to get to and if it has plenty of parking. Are there meters that need feeding or is the parking free? Remember, one day you may be frantically driving your child and his or her broken tooth in an emergency. You want to be familiar with how to get there and how to park before an emergency arises.
Find out how the dentist needs to be paid before you make any appointments. Ask if there are any discounts if you pay in cash. If you have dental insurance, call your insurance company to get recommendations from family dentists in your area.
