If you're a current patient at Miyasaki Dental, feel free to skip this read because you already found a team dedicated to providing you the best dental experience in town. For everyone else, here are some pointers offered by the American Dental Association (ADA) to help find a dentist right for you.

American Dental Association Suggestions:

  1. Ask family, friends, neighbors, or co-workers for any dental office recommendations. A great testimonial from a trusted source can be a great lead. 
  2. Ask your family doctor or local pharmacist.
  3. If you're moving, ask your current dentist to make a recommendation.
  4. Contact your local or state dental society.
  5. Call or visit more than one dentist if needed before selecting one. 

At Miyasaki Dental, we also recommend utilizing different review platforms like Yelp to get a general consensus about a dental office. At Miyasaki Dental, we have a page dedicated to just reviews so that our patients and potential patients can leave feedback and learn about our services. Click here for reviews

To find a suitable dentist to meet your needs, consider asking the following questions as a starting point:

  1. What are the office hours? Are they convenient for your schedule?
  2. Is the office easy to get to from work or home? 
  3. Where was the dentist educated and trained? 
  4. What's the dentist's approach to preventive dentistry?
  5. How often does the dentist attend conferences and continuing education workshops?
  6. What happens if you have an emergency?
  7. Does the office educate you on treatments options and inform you about insurance benefits and finances?
  8. What is the dentist's office policy on missed appointments?

A great dental office will address all of these questions and make you feel part of their dental family.
