How to Choose a Good Dentist
Your oral health is an essential part of your overall well-being. Just like you need a primary care physician you can trust, you also need a reliable dentist to oversee your dental care at every stage of life. From their credentials to the types of dentistry they perform, here are a few points to keep in mind.
Assess Their Experience
While there are many new dental school graduates who provide wonderful service, patients often prefer working with an established dentist who has years of experience. Dr. Dean Glasser graduated from the University of Maryland with honors in 1985 and has been providing dental care to patients in Long Island for decades.
Check Their Credentials
A dentist can hold a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD). They are equal degrees. They must also be licensed to practice dentistry in their state; you can verify a dentist’s credentials by visiting your state’s board of dentistry website.
Evaluate Their Services
While a general dentist is able to care for your basic oral health, it’s possible you’ll need more extensive care at different parts of your life. If you choose a qualified dentist who offers multiple specialties in the same practice, you can receive the most comprehensive, cohesive dental care possible.
Dr. Glasser provides a wide range of services, including general and family dentistry, pediatric dentistry, restorative dentistry, and cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening.
Although you may not need every service a dentist offers, it can be helpful to choose a professional who could cater to your needs at every stage of life or in the event of a mouth injury.
Family dental practices are also a great way to save time; booking appointments together can allow everyone to get the care they need in one place.
