6 of the Best Advice on How to Find a Pediatric Dentist

Find a pediatric dentist your kids will love. Here’s a roundup of the best advice.

Check in with family and friends

They’re often the best source of information so don’t dismiss them. Reach out to your neighbors as well. They can save you a lot of time and trouble.

Go online

Look for a pediatric dentist in your area. With plenty of dental care providers online, finding the ones nearest to you should be easy. Put together a list and get started in winnowing down your options.

Consider the basics

Look at the credentials of the dentist. That’s one of the first things you’ll need to look into. After all, not all dental care providers are experienced and trained in caring for kids. Don’t hand over the care of your children unless you’re absolutely sure you’re engaging the services of a competent and experienced dentist for them.

Pay a visit

Book an appointment so you can see the clinic and talk to the dentist in person. A consultation can help you figure out which of the oral care providers fit the bill much better, Colgate says.

Observe the staff

Consider how they treat you and your family. What about the other patients? Are they patient and understanding? Did they provide you with the information you needed or did you feel like you were being a nuisance? Keep those observations in mind when you make your final choice.

Check it out

Take a look around the office. If it caters to kids, then are there kid-friendly books and toys around? These can help make visits to the dentist more fun. When your child comes into the dentist, check the equipment. Is it kid-sized? These things will tell you a great deal about the dentist and whether or not you’ve found a good one for your family.
