Don’t have a regular local family dentist you trust? This happens. Perhaps you’ve moved, your old dentist retired, or you’d just like to try someone else. We would recommend finding one you like and seeing the same dentist regularly. This way they can be familiar with your family’s unique dental health history and address your needs accordingly. When a dentist becomes a familiar friend, it can really help if you experience dental anxiety or fear. There’s a familiarity when they know your family and care about what’s happening in your life. Talk with friends and family and see who they trust. Have your kids meet the dentist and see how they feel. Finding a dentist you actually like is so important to your smile.
