Has it been a few years since your last dental visit? Or have you recently moved to a new city and find yourself Googling “best dentist near me“? When you’re looking for a new dentist, you are looking for more than just someone that will clean your family’s teeth. You want a dentist & dental staff that are looking out for you and your family’s best interests.
Having a dental office that allows you to feel comfortable when you’re dropping in for regular visits and gives you a safe and trusting environment to turn to for a dental procedure or a dental emergency. Here’s how to find the best dentist office for you and your family.
Friends & Family Referrals
One of the best places to start a search for a new dentist is by asking friends and family for a referral. They will have the first-hand experience with a local dentist and know the pros and cons of that specific dental office. So if your favorite aunt says she loves a dentist, check them out!
Location is also an important criteria for your search for a new dentist. You are going to want a dentist near you that will eliminate travel time from your busy schedule.

Research Their Online Reputation
We are living in a digital era where massive amounts of information are at our finger tips. So take advantage of the reviews that have been left by patients for each office you are vetting. There are several websites that have dentist reviews but the most reputable will usually be Google reviews. Here at Hillside Dental, we have about 500 reviews with a 4.8 rating out of 5. Check out our reviews here for yourself!
Check Their Credentials
Review the dentist’s history. Where did he or she go to school? Also very importantly, does the dentist continue their education? Look at the different associations they belong to as well, these could show that the dentist is working to maintain their educational path to provide the most advanced level of care.
Meet & Greet
Next step will be to start calling different offices and asking them questions about their office. Don’t be shy to walk in and check the place out. You’ll know that it’s the right dentist if the reception area is clean and inviting, and the receptionist and staff are friendly. You can make a list of questions for the dentist and staff. Remember to bring you dental records so that you and the dentist can review your specific needs and make sure that office will be a good fit for you.
