Key Factors to Consider When Looking for a New Dentist

In a busy city like Calgary, there are a number of dentists to choose from and while it can be easy to find a dental practice, the question is:

How do you know they’re the best dentist for you?

When considering a potential dentist, there are a number of factors to take into account. Apart from brushing regularly, the best way to protect your oral health is to work with your dental health professional and build a long-term relationship with them.

Whether you are looking to make a change or have recently moved to Calgary, it’s important to do the appropriate research to ensure that the dentist you select can meet all your oral health and lifestyle needs.

What To Look For When Selecting a Calgary Dentist

Choosing an experienced, reliable and trustworthy dentist for you and your family is an important task.

You’ll want to find someone you are comfortable with and also a dentist who is best qualified to provide the type of dentistry you need.

Here are the top 6 factors to consider when choosing the best dentist for you:

  1. Location & Operating Hours

The first step to establish whether or not a dental practice is the right choice for you is its location. Choosing a dentist that is in close proximity to your home, work or child’s school makes it easier to keep appointments.

Operating hours is another important consideration. The best dentists offer flexible timings to meet the demands of busy patients and are open early mornings, afternoons and evenings as well as on weekends.

Marlborough Dental Centre is conveniently located at Marlborough Mall in NE Calgary and our dentists work 7 days a week to accommodate all of our patients.

  1. Affordability & Direct Billing

Although you should not choose your dentist based on price alone, it’s important to make sure that you understand the fees before consenting to any treatment.

If you have insurance and need help understanding what your plan covers and what your out-of-pocket expenses should be, the dental office should be able to assist you with that. In addition, for easy payment transactions, look for a dentist that offers direct billing.

Our dental team is committed to making every aspect of your treatment hassle-free. We work with you to assess your type of dental insurance coverage and set up the appropriate process for direct billing, if applicable.

  1. Clean, Modern Facility

When choosing the best dentist for your family, one of the most important things to check is whether the practice meets the highest standards.

This includes:

  • State-of-the-art services featuring the latest in dental care and technology
  • A clean, professional and organized environment
  • Clear display of all important information such as pricing guides and cancellation policies
  • A support staff that is welcoming, polite and knowledgeable
  • Kid-friendly space

If you chose a dentist who invests in new technology to help improve patient experience and enhance the treatment process, you can rest assured that you and your family are receiving the best services available.

  1. Patient Comfort

When visiting potential new dentists, be sure to ask what sort of patient comforts the practice offers. This is especially important if you or a member of your family suffers from dental anxiety.

Many practices offer a variety of services to help patients feel comfortable. This includes premedication and sedation dentistry to make your visit as pleasant as possible for anxious patients.

Whatever your concerns are, they should be the primary interests of your dentist. Families and individuals deserve a dentist who prioritizes patients' health and well-being.
