How to Choose The Right Dental Clinic For Your Family:
If you’re new to the New Westminster area, sooner or later you’ll find that you need the services of a dentist. Don’t put off making arrangements with a dental clinic until the last possible time- dentists recommend putting the activity high on your list of priorities to ensure you choose a practice that offers everything you’re looking for and is able to meet your needs. It’s important to your family’s oral health that you look into your options sooner rather than later. The following are a few tips to help you choose a dental clinic that is right for you:
Tip #1: Find a clinic that accepts your dental insurance benefits. If you’re not already subscribing to a dental plan, this is a great time to inquire as to one that is affordable and provides good coverage for both preventive care and traditional dental care. Feel free to contact Royal Square Dental at 604-526-1216 with any questions about insurance benefits. Our staff will be happy to provide answers and schedule a new patient appointment if necessary.
Tip #2: Consider the accessibility of the location or the convenience of where it’s situated. Dentists agree that patients are more likely to miss appointments or not make necessary appointments at all when they’ve failed to consider whether their dentist’s facility is positioned close to home, work, or shopping- and while location should never be the driving factor regarding whether you choose a dentist, it should be considered in the top 3 reasons to select a dental clinic.
Tip #3: When it’s not a clear choice as to which dental clinic to go with, make it easier on yourself by scheduling a consultation with 1-3 facilities prior to making an appointment. You’ll find a face-to-face meeting is the best way to get a first impression of a practice and feel out whether you make a connection with the staff.
Tip #4: Make it a priority to learn whether your prospective dental clinic refers patients out-of-office for certain dental procedures. It’s beneficial to find a practice with the equipment and skills to perform in-house root canals and other non-typical procedures. You’ll save a lot of time and money later on if you do a little research now.
Tip #5: Give an honest evaluation of the dentist and staff after your first appointment. All too often, patients who are not satisfied with the level of service they receive from their dentist simply disregard their first impressions or are too busy to look for another practice.
