Important Questions to Ask Prospective Dentists

Dentist Selection

With care from affordable dentists, you can keep your healthy smile throughout life. Finding a dentist in Atlanta is easier if you have friends and neighbors who can help, but if you’re new to the area, you may need to do your homework. You can start by obtaining a list of local providers and visiting their websites or checking online consumer forums for reviews. When you narrow your results to a few local dentists in Atlanta who you like, you can start interviewing them to see if they meet your needs.

Asking the following questions is a great way to find out if a dentist is the right one for you and your family. 



  • How long have you been in practice, and what are your areas of expertise?
  • Where is the clinic located, and what are your office hours? Are weekend and emergency appointments available? If not, is another dentist on call to handle emergencies?
  • Do you feel comfortable treating all members of my family, including young children and elderly parents?
  • Are a patient’s spouses, parents, or family members welcome during routine exams and procedures?
  • Does your practice accept my insurance plan, and are routine exams covered?
  • How and when will I be notified that it’s time to make the next appointment? Is there a penalty for missed appointments?
  • Are treatments, procedures, techniques explained clearly before they are performed?
  • Do you make special provisions for patients who experience dental phobia symptoms? Do you offer conscious sedation?
  • Do you offer or support the use of alternative or natural treatment options?
