Ask Your Current DentistChances are, your current dentist knows a lot of great dentists in different cities too and has a lot of connections. But, if you’re finding a new Hamilton dentist because you’re not happy with the current services you’re receiving, you may want to rely on friends and family referrals. Google will also be your best friend when it comes to finding top-rated dental offices in your designated area too. Which brings us to the next point.
Read ReviewsNo matter what product or service you’re looking for, reviews are always worth reading. Though not everything or everyone will have a perfect five-star rating, you should have a good idea what most people think of their staff and services, especially if they’ve been serving multi-generational families for years.
Are Their Hours & Location Convenient?Every dental office will have different hours. If you’re someone with a tight schedule, do their hours accommodate that? Some offices will stay open a few days of the week so patients don’t have to book a day off school or work just to make it to their dentist appointment. Some will even keep their doors open on a Saturday to further accommodate busy schedules. Better yet, are they within a 15 to 20-minute drive from your home? It’s important to find a dentist that’s close by for a few different reasons:
- You may need to book an appointment during your lunch break at school or work
- You or someone in your family may have dental anxiety
- You may have suffered an accidental injury and need emergency care
