Find the Right Dental Professional

Here are some ways to help you find a qualified dental implant professional close to you. By doing a little research, you can discover a dentist who is right for you.

Find an Implant Dentist Near You

  • Call a local dental association. Visit their website. They are an excellent source on information.
  • Ask a friend or a family member. “Word of mouth” is a common way to find out more information.
  • Search the internet. There are several websites that allow users to rate the dental office and dentist. You can also read comments made about the dentist or a dental office.

Find an Implant Dentist That is Right For You

  • Location. People are often willing to travel a little further to see a highly recommended doctor. Some patients prefer an office that is easy to find, has convenient hours, allow easy access and parking, and/or be close to public transportation.
  • Gender and age. Some people have a preference for a dentist of the same gender or of a certain age group. These factors however, probably do not have much to do with the qualifications of the practitioner.
  • Language. Effective communication is important to every doctor-patient relationship. If this could be a concern, you may want to ask what languages are routinely spoken in the office.
  • Office intangibles. Your experience with a doctor’s practice can be influenced by non-medical things, such as how you were greeted on the phone, how the office looks, the attitudes of the staff, the way the doctor makes you feel and other intangibles.
