How to Choose a General Dentist

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

Finding a local Fresno dentist is easy; finding one who offers comprehensive care, personalized service, and state-of-the-art treatment options can be a bit more a challenge. If you have experienced disappointment in the past with general dentists, we want to change that for you. We strive to be the kind of dental practice you can trust to oversee your dental health for life.

Look For Comprehensive Dentistry

Today, dentistry is a very competitive field. Advances in technology and techniques have changed the dental environment to focus more on patient comfort and improved treatments. Cosmetic dentistry and neuromuscular dentistry have grown to become key aspects of comprehensive dental care.

When you are looking for a new general dentist, we strongly advise you to choose a practice that offers a wide range of services beyond general dentistry. Dentists who are skilled in other specialties can integrate their knowledge and experience when facing your dental problems, providing you with “big picture” solutions that you can take confidence in.

Choosing Your General Dentist

The first step to choosing a great general dentist is to make a list of local dentists in your area that stand out. Search online, ask for recommendations from your family and friends, and then place a call to each practice that interests you.

When you are speaking with the office’s representative, ask them questions about their services, the dentist’s background, and whether or not they offer free initial consultations. Notice the tone of the representative, as well. Those who are kind, courteous, and helpful over the phone indicate that they are part of a personal, patient-focused practice.

Finally, attend a consultation with the dentist that interests you. Remember, a consultation is just a chance for you to get to know the team and get a feel for the environment. You don’t have to have any dental work done until you are completely confident in a practice’s capabilities.
