How to Choose a Dentist

Fresno Dentist Serving Madera, Clovis, Visalia, Tulare & Nearby Areas in California

Think back to the previous dental experiences you’ve had. Were there aspects of the care, the environment, or the people that you would change? Many patients are used to being treated as just another number at the dentist’s office, with unanswered questions about their treatments and an unsettled feeling about the entire practice.

At the Fresno dental office of Dr. Gregory G. Miyake, we believe you deserve better. We are constantly touching base with our patients to find out how we can enhance their dental experiences. We’re also adamant about making sure potential patients are comfortable with our personalized style of dentistry before they come in for treatment.

During your free initial consultation, we’ll provide a comprehensive overview of what you can expect, and ask for your input on the ideal dental visit. If you are in the process of searching for a new dentistry team to manage your oral health, we offer the following suggestions for finding the perfect fit.

  • Look for comprehensive scope. Ideally, you want a dental team that is highly skilled in general, cosmetic, and neuromuscular dentistry. A dentist who has expertise in all three areas is better prepared to diagnose and treat your dental problems with the big picture in mind: form, function, aesthetics, and oral health all working together.
  • Evaluate personalized care. Advertisements may promise an enjoyable patient experience, but you can judge for yourself when you call or visit a practice. Take note of the way you are treated from the very first interaction. Do the team members seem genuinely interested in you and your health? Friendly, engaging staff is usually an indication that the team is invested in their work environment and care about your welfare and results. An ideal dental office will respect your time and be accommodating during every step of the process.
  • Talk to the dentist. Before you make a commitment, you have the right to a one-on-one conversation with your potential dentist. Feel free to discuss anything that might help you understand his or her method of care, including background, education, services, and practice philosophy. As you search for a Fresno general dentist, the one who stands out will take the time to thoroughly answer your questions and exhibit genuine concern for your dental health.
