THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — FAYETTEVILLE | FORT BRAGG | SANDHILLS REGION VOLUME 6 — ISSUE 2 88 CHOOSING A DENTIST Choosing a dental care provider for your family may not be on your priority list just after you move. However, you should become acquainted with a dentist near your new home in case of a dental emergency, not to mention those routine check-ups that keep your teeth (and smile) clean and healthy. Finding a dentist quickly is important because you can establish a relationship with a dentist before an emergency situation arises and you find your self scrambling to find a dentist to take care of you. After researching a few dentists to consider, call one for an appointment. At your first visit, you should be able to learn a lot about whether the dentist is right for you and your family. Keep in mind the following questions, as provided by the American Dental Association: • What is the general appearance of the office, the dentist and the staff? Is everything neat, clean and orderly? Remember, every dental office must abide by the current OSHA (Occupational and Health Administration) guidelines for sterilization and disinfection. • How available is the dentist? Is the appointment schedule convenient for you? Is the office easy to get to from your home or place of business? • Does the office provide dental health instruction and education? You want a dentist who is skilled both in the treatment and prevention of dental disorders. • What arrangements does the dentist have for handling emergencies that occur outside of office hours? You will find that most dentists arrange for a colleague or a referral source to aid their patients when they themselves will be unavailable. • Don't be embarrassed to ask the dentist about fees. The dentist and his/her staff should be willing to discuss fees and or financial arrangements in advance of treatment. By spending the small amount of time necessary to make an intelligent choice of a dentist, you will help create a doctor-patient relationship founded on trust and mutual respect.
