Finding the right cosmetic dentist is a task that requires a little bit of research and a lot of intuition. In today’s competitive dental climate, you have the opportunity to compare providers and make a decision that is based on factors such as dentist experience, visible results, training, technology, and personal service. Below, we give you several tips to narrow down your list of potential cosmetic dentists and find the right dental team to give you the beautiful smile you deserve.

Evaluating Customer Service

From your first conversation with a potential cosmetic dentist, you should be paying attention to the way you are treated:

  • Are you treated with kindness from the start?
  • Are you invited in for a tour of the dental practice?
  • Is the team member patient with you or are you rushed into a decision about scheduling?
  • Do they readily provide you with practice information over the phone, such as financing information or details about the cosmetic dentist’s background?
  • If you are making inquiries in person, does a team member show you around and give you their undivided attention?

Experience & Expertise

Although personal service is important, you also want to make sure the dentist you choose is a seasoned professional who has undergone significant, top-notch training in several aspects of dentistry. Here are a few questions you can ask regarding your cosmetic dentist’s background:

  • Where did you receive your dental training?
  • Do you participate in continuing education classes? If so, how often?
  • How long have you been practicing dentistry?
  • Do you offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry services to address all of my aesthetic goals?

Great Results

Last but not least, you need to be sure that your new cosmetic dentist offers a full range of smile makeover services with proven results. The best way to evaluate a cosmetic dentist’s results is to ask to view an extensive before and after gallery. Since aesthetics are only part of the goal of your treatment, you should also ask about how the dental team works to ensure functionality and longevity of the tooth restorations they create.
