Let's face it, everybody needs a change from time to time. Whether it's because of a new job, family, or just for the adventure, most people will at some point in their lives pick up and move somewhere else. We recommend moving to Manhattan! Seriously, it's beautiful here, there's so much energy and excitement it will take your breath away. Not to mention, right in the middle of the city you will find our midtown Manhattan dental office!
But seriously, when people move, not only do they have to find new friends, new stores to shop at and new restaurants to eat at, they have to find a new qualified licenced dentist too. So here are some things everyone should consider when making a decision about what new dental office to pick.
Our patients will tell you, the first thing you should do is check with their insurance company, and find out what local dentists they cover. Next, ask friends or even your old dentist who they recommend. Chances are, if your friend has been seeing the same dentist for years, he or she is pretty good. Third, check with the American Dental Association's website, for inside information and recommendations from the dental community. This can give valuable insight into what kinds of dentists are around. Finally, schedule a dental exam. A preliminary meeting with a possible new doctor will usually tell you all you need to know about whether the two of you will get along.
When choosing a new dentist, it's important to ask yourself questions about what kind of work you might need. Will you go in mainly to a cosmetic dentist for simple touch ups, or more serious things like sleep apnea. We think our patients will agree that choosing a dentist is not to be taken lightly, and making the right choice can be a rewarding experience for both of you for a long time.
