In many ways, searching for a new dentist is the most difficult professional to replace, because of the trust involved. One way to start looking for a new dentist is through dental reviews. Not sure how to look for a dentist using dental reviews? Keep reading to find out.
About Dental Reviews
You may want to begin by asking co-workers who their dentist is, especially those co-workers you have a compatibility with, as you may have the same tastes they do in dentists. Once you have a list of names, you could begin to look for reviews. You may want to begin your search on the dentist's website.
Does the website look clean and professional? Does it represent what you would want to see in a dentist? If the dentist has a good website, he or she may also have a patient review area on the website. This will allow you to see how patients view their dental care. Be sure that you read the good reviews, as well as the not-so-good reviews.
In addition to the dentist's review page, you may also want to look at dental review websites and read reviews of your possible dentist there. Also, you can check out dental reviews on Google and Yahoo as well. While reviews on your possible dentist's website are good, these search engine websites may be more objective, as the dentists may choose to highlight the good points of the practice and minimize the bad.
