Dr. Lisa Gitelson, Tigard Dentist talking to a patient about how to choose a general dentist at Lisa Gitelson, DMD.If you are in need of a new general dentist, it is important to weigh your options.

What to Look For in a Dentist

There are several things to consider when choosing a new dentist. Some of which include:
•  Your dental health benefits—Your dentist could be determined by your dental health plan, the type of benefits you receive, if you have an HMO, etc. You should also be aware of the costs. Even if you have insurance, you may still be paying out of pocket for certain services.
•  Recommendations—Word of mouth is an invaluable tool. Ask your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors what they like about their dentist. Who knows, maybe that is why you are already on our site! Be sure that the dentist has the proper accreditation. A good dentist will be a member of the American Dental Association, a local dental society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
•  Accessibility—Be sure to choose a dentist that is close to home or work. Make sure our office hours also work with your schedule.
•  Personal comfort—Quite possibly the most important things to consider when choosing a dentist. You should feel comfortable asking questions and voicing concerns. You should also have confidence in our abilities to prevent, diagnose, and treat tooth decay and oral diseases.
•  Emergency Care—Be sure you know what to do in case of a dental emergency. You should know whom to call and where to go before an emergency arises.
