Quick Tips on Choosing the Best Cosmetic Dentists for Your Dental Health Needs By Dr. Pinnix on August 27, 2012

Choosing a dentist can be a bit tricky, especially since there are many Charlotte dentists to choose from. It is important to choose the right dentist, however, since patients are putting both their health and the appearance of their teeth into the hands of these dental professionals, DDS's and DMD's. Some people depend on the yellow pages in the phone book or the advice of a friend or family member when seeking a new dentist, but it is better for each patient to do their own research and talk with several dentists and their respective staff in order to determine which dental practice is right for their individual needs.

One thing to look for when choosing a cosmetic dentist in Charlotte NC is the dentist's reputation. Ask the dentist if he has any customer testimonials -- these testimonials can give potential patients a good idea of what to expect from the dentist, and potential patients will often be shown before-and-after pictures of past patients' teeth. Cosmetic dentists who seem to be well-liked, well-respected and known throughout the community are typically a safe bet.

It is also important to look for a cosmetic dentist in Charlotte NC who offers a free initial consultation. Patients should not have to pay for their initial consultation, and this gives them a time to meet with the dentist and staff, to become accustomed with the office and to learn more about the procedures that they need. This is a good time to ask the dentist about their education and achievements; take notice if these achievements are similar to those of other Charlotte dentists, and patients should look for a dentist who seems to stand above other dentists in respective practice areas, such as General, Family, Childern, Cosmetic, Sedation, etc.

After the initial free consultation, most potential patients will realize whether or not they like the dentist that they met with. A dentist who answers all of a potential patients' questions, who shows the patient an office tour, and who legitimately spends time with the patient is usually a great choice, and the attitude and treatment of other employees in the dental office should also be taken into consideration. Once a potential patient finds a cosmetic dentist's office that makes them feel comfortable, it is time to set the appointment and get to work on having a prettier smile.
