Because we know it can be difficult to find a gentle dentist, we decided to compile a few tips for you. The following are things to look for when searching for an effective, gentle dentist.
The ideal dentist:
1. Asks about your life
One of the first signs of a caring dentist is that they ask about your life. Be sure your dentist is asking about your family, activities, work, etc. If they aren’t, it’s a sure sign that you’re nothing more than money to them.
2. Listens to your concerns
Your dentist’s office needs to be a safe place for you. This includes your ability to voice your concerns. When you share your thoughts with your dentist, pay attention to how they listen and respond. The best dentists will listen carefully, empathize, and try to find a solution.
3. Takes great care of your teeth
While it may seem like a given, a great dentist needs to take excellent care of your teeth. Some dentists aren’t very attentive to patients’ oral health needs. This can be seen short-term and long-term by paying attention to how your teeth respond to certain treatments.
4. Explains your treatments and the state of your teeth
The best dentists will always be honest and careful in educating you. The average person only understands the basics of dentistry. In order to be truly effective, a dentist should help bring you up to speed on what’s going on in your mouth. When doing this, your dentist should be patient, kind, and honest.
5. Has mutual interests
While it isn’t always necessary, sometimes it can help if you share interests with your dentist. This will allow you to build a closer relationship more quickly.
6. Understands your needs
Over time, a truly effective dentist will get an idea of your specific needs. Each patient is different, and you have your own desires. As you talk more and more with your dentist, they should become more and more in-tune with what you think is important.
