When you think of going to a family dentist, what exactly are looking for? Do you want a dentist that’s close to home or to your office or do you want to be able to easily make or reschedule your appointments as needed?
It’s important to consider what your family looks like and who among those family members will be visiting this dentist, not just now, but in the years to come. In this blog we’ve included some factors we believe to be important when choosing a dentist that’s right for you and your family.
If you’re looking for a kids dentist in Mooroolbark, you’ll want to consider a dentist with experience in pediatric dentistry. Our dentists have an excellent knowledge of exactly what kids need in order to be comfortable when they’re sitting in that chair, and they’ll catch potential problems with your kids’ teeth before they become more serious. That’s why we’re the best kid’s dentist in Mooroolbark!
If you’re getting older or have serious dental problems, you may want a dentist with more experience. Our dentists in Mooroolbark specialize in root canal treatment, teeth whitening, dentures and wisdom teeth removal, just to name a few. While there are dentists who send this out to a specialist, you may find that you’re more comfortable with a dentist who can do as much of your work as possible in-house.
If you have anxiety at the dentist, you’ll want a dentist who is good at putting you at ease: someone who can make you comfortable even when you have to have a procedure done. Our understanding dentists in Mooroolbark provide you with medications and other tools to help you get through difficult appointments, rather than trying to rush things through or make you endure. Our office staff are warm and friendly and helpful when making or rescheduling your appointments as needed.
You’ll also want a dentist who is able to meet your other needs, including making sure that your dentist is licensed and in good standing. Our dentists are board certified and qualified ensuring that you’re in professional, well-trained hands.
When you’re evaluating your list of candidates, it’s worth keeping these key questions in mind:
- Do you want your dentist close to work or home? Do they offer after-hours/emergency care?
- Is it close to public transport and adequate parking?
- What kind of services do they offer? Do they participate in government schemes such as the Child Dental Benefits Schedule?
- Is the practice accredited? It’s not obligatory but it does indicate that they have worked hard to meet a set of internationally-recognised healthcare standards.
Choosing a great dentist is about more than just getting your teeth cleaned a couple of times a year. By choosing Mooroolbark Family Dental for your family, you’ll increase your overall oral health as well as the odds that you’ll catch any problems before they become more serious and more importantly a dentist who is able to fit the specific needs of your family.
