Man talking to dentist in dental exam roomHow did you pick your last dentist? Many patients answer this question by saying it was the one closest to their home or office or the office that took their dental insurance. Unfortunately, what we hear from a lot of these patients is that they weren’t necessarily happy with this dental office, but they didn’t really think that any other office would be better. Studies show that patients are more likely to keep up with their regular dental office visits when they have a good relationship with their dentist. Taking some extra time to find the right practice may dramatically increase your chances for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
