How to Choose a Dentist

In Naples and Fort Myers, Florida

Choosing a dentist is no longer as easy as picking the practice closest to your house out of the phone book.  In particular, the field of cosmetic dentistry has become highly competitive, and technology is evolving so quickly, many practices can barely keep up.  Cosmetic dentistry is as much an art form as it is a technique, and dentists who want to acquire and keep dedicated patients must rise to the changing needs of cosmetic dental patients.  The importance of a great smile is more recognized now then ever before, and Florida dentists are striving to offer patients a wide variety of aesthetically pleasing and functional treatment options.  Although some families prefer to stick with the general dentist they’ve used for years, when considering a smile makeover, you may want to shop around for the cosmetic dentist that can offer you exceptional smile design. 

So how do you find a dentist that can meet your needs?

The most important factor to consider when choosing a dentist is quality – look for dentists like Dr. Massa who maintains a commitment to education, training, and quality, and who strive to offer patients long-lasting, durable restorations and materials.  Dr. Massa will take his time to do your dental work right the first time, which will save you money and time in the long run.

Word of mouth is a powerful tool in finding a cosmetic or general dentist – talk to friends, family members, and coworkers.  Ask questions about personal service, treatments, and results. You can inquire through your local dental society or state dental board also.  Remember that a consultation does not mean a commitment.  You can utilize the consultation as an opportunity to ‘interview’ your potential dentist and decide if you are ready to take the next step.  If you are prepared to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on your smile makeover, you definitely want to take the time to choose your ‘smile artist’ carefully. 

When interviewing your potential dentist, make sure you get complete information on his or her background, specialized training and experience.  Find out what organizations he or she is a member of, and whether or not continuing education is maintained.  You want to find a dentist that makes an effort to get to know you and your family and is willing to spend time assessing and meeting your unique needs.  Ask about the technology utilized in the practice and how it will directly affect your treatment.  You will want to take a look at before and after pictures of other patients and find out if each potential dentist offers affordable financing for all services.
