What to look for when choosing a dentist in Aurora
Are you new to the area, or a long-time resident of Aurora looking for a new partner in maintaining dental health? In either case, choosing a dentist for yourself and the people you love is a big decision that can have a far-reaching impact on oral health, appearance, overall wellness, budget, and busy schedule. Here are some points to consider as you search for a dentist in Aurora.
Perhaps you are single, and right now, responsible only for your own dental care. However, personal situations can change in a heartbeat. By selecting a dental practice that welcomes patients of all ages
, you are well-situated for whatever the future may bring, including children or acting as caregiver for an older family member.
If you are already part of a family, you know the ease that goes with friendly faces and a calming atmosphere
. Familiarity with the dental team is especially comforting for nervous patients of any age, or when settling into the chair for a new procedure.
Range of services
When you choose a dental practice that offers a broad range of services, you can get the preventive, restorative, and cosmetic care you are likely to need, at one location. Among the services available at Dr. Harry Weingarten & Associates Family and Cosmetic Dentistry
- Cosmetic fillings
- Dental crowns
- Root canal therapy
- Tooth extractions
- Dental implants
- Teeth whitening
- Nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation
No one dental practice can offer in-depth experience in every potential specialty. Your wellbeing is Dr. Weingarten's top priority
. After providing a thorough examination and taking time to fully understand your situation, he will provide referral to an appropriate specialist in any case in which he believes that is in your best interests.
A dentist who is readily available can simplify your life
in a number of ways. Is the location easy to find, with ample free parking? Does the practice offer late day or Saturday hours? Can appointments for multiple family members be scheduled on the same day to reduce missed work and travel? Do they allow time in the schedule to see emergencies same day? Do front desk personnel assist with billing questions and insurance claims? These may seem like trivial points, but they are important considerations in the selection of a dentist.
Training, experience, personality
The credentials of the dentist, and the training and experience of the entire team, are good indications of the level of care you can expect. When considering a new dentist, don?t be afraid to ask about background and years of experience. Inquire about the types of continuing education the dentist and the team have taken. Look for evidence of current technologies and techniques in use. Perhaps most importantly, listen to your ?gut.? Does the staff answer the phone and greet you with genuine warmth? Are you comfortable talking with the dentist? Do you feel that you are treated with courtesy and respect?
