Whether you’ve moved to a new area or are just switching dental homes, what questions should you ask? Here are five important ones:

1. Are You Accepting New Patients?

The first question you should ask any new dentist is whether they’re accepting new patients. Many practices are always welcoming new patients, but some are very busy and may not be able to schedule an appointment for you as soon as you’d like.

2. What Kinds of Services Do You Offer?

When you’re changing dentists, you want to be sure they offer all the services you and your family might need. Chandler Dental Center offers preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. We’re also equipped for oral surgery, TMD/TMJ treatment, emergency dentistry, and sedation dentistry!

3. What Kind of Amenities & Dental Tech Does Your Office Have?

Most dental offices offer amenities for patients. Knowing more about them helps you take advantage of perks like Wi-Fi, pillows, snacks, and more. It’s also useful to know what kinds of dental tech the office is using, so you can understand more about the oral healthcare you’ll receive.

4. Are There Any Treatments You Recommend for Me?

A dentist will always tell you if you have cavities or gum disease, but you may also want to know if there are non-essential treatments you could benefit from. When you’re at your first appointment with a new dentist, ask if there are any services they recommend.

5. Does Your Practice Take My Insurance?

Before choosing a dentist and receiving any services, you want to understand their payment options. If you have insurance, make sure the dental practice accepts it. At our office, we accept FSAs, HSAs, cash, debit and credit cards, CareCredit, and Alphaeon Credit. We also offer two in-house dental memberships (Hygiene and Periodontal) for uninsured and insured patients.
