People often ask me what makes a great dentist? I always like to tell them that it’s not just the dentist you need to look at. If your friends or family are in the market for a new dentist let them know that they should look at the whole practice; the dentist, the team, and their practice philosophy. Here are my top 3 recommendations for things you should look for when trying to find a great dental practice.
- Expertise and experience
- A practice philosophy of preventative dentistry
- An excellent reputation
Does the dental practice have a particular area of expertise and experience?
At Premier Dental Care in Herndon, Virginia, our team consists of dental health professionals. We want all patients to know that we are a team of highly-trained and skilled clinicians. We take great pride in providing the care your family needs to keep smiling. To provide quality service and superior results, each of us is committed to ongoing education in the field and practice of dentistry. Our staff regularly attend lectures, meetings, and dental conventions. We aim to stay informed of new products, treatments, and techniques. We ask our providers to brief us on the latest developments in equipment, so that our office can provide state-of-the-art dental care. In addition, our practice is a member of the American Dental Association, the Northern Virginia Dental Society, and the Virginia Dental Association. These key memberships also help us stay abreast of the changes in our profession.
Are they committed to a philosophy of preventative dentistry?
In our practice, each and every team member is a true believer in preventative dental care and ongoing education. These are the keys to optimal dental health for our patients and success in our practice. We endeavor to provide dental health care services, as opposed to mere disease care. As professionals in the dental care industry, we know that routine cleanings, regular flossing, sealants, and fluoride treatments are beneficial in maintaining good oral health and in preventing dental disease
It is our goal to help restore and enhance the natural beauty of your smile. In our office, we employ state-of-the-art treatments and procedures that we know will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles for you and your whole family. We believe that our patients and their families deserve nothing less than a comprehensive oral care treatment plan.
Does the practice have an excellent reputation?
You should be wary if you do not find lots of positive patient reviews online. It’s natural to have a couple of bad reviews but the positive reviews should strongly outweigh the negative reviews. Do your research and ensure you go with a dental practice that is backed by positive and authentic consumer reviews. Our patient reviews really speak for themselves. We are always humbled by our patient responses and reviews to our work. We truly take pride in our work and the biggest compliment we can receive if your positive reviews online and in person.
