What to Look for in a Dentist [infographic]

  • Cleanliness- While you might not think a dental centre needs to be sterile like an operating room, being clean is still quite important. Be sure they have state-of-the-art sterilization equipment.
  • Modern- Dental practices have changed quite a bit in recent years. You should look for a dentist that has modern diagnostic equipment, including digital x-rays.
  • Child-Friendly- Children should feel safe and happy while visiting the dentist. Choose a dentist who provides a positive experience for children and has a playroom to keep them happy and safe.
  • Qualified Staff- It isn’t just the dentist that you want to know is qualified. Certifications should be proudly displayed or provided upon request to be sure everyone has the proper credentials. An added bonus is having a CPR-certified person on board.
  • Welcoming Feeling- When you walk into a dental centre, you should feel welcomed and reassured that you and your family’s health and happiness are a top priority. You should feel comfortable asking questions and get clarification on any dental service you are considering.
