Before you choose a treatment you have to find out as much as you can about the dental practice. When you get a proposal for dental treatment, the price alone is not enough to decide whether it is right for you.
Here are a few essential points to consider when you are weighing up the quality of a service and judging the value represented by the price.
First impressions are important!
A clean surgery, up-to-date equipment, considerate and well informed staff and professional written information are all signs of a well-capitalised operation which you can depend on in the long term. This is very important, because many dental interventions carry a several-year guarantee, and this has to be backed up by a reliable and stable dental practice.
Dentistry has become so diverse, involving many new methods of treatment, that it has divided into areas of speciality. A practice should have separate specialists for different
areas, highly qualified in their respective fields and benefiting from concentrated experience. A team of dentists is also much better able to approach a complex problem in all its various aspects. You may also appreciate the convenience of getting all of your treatment in one place rather than having to go elsewhere for surgery, for example.
You should have a look at the dentist’s experience (e.g. special qualifications, length of experience in the field, number of implants inserted)
Getting information and making a plan
Everybody has different needs, tolerance to pain, and financial means. A good dentist can in most cases offer several options for treatment. You should be told about the benefits and drawbacks of each option, and any risks associated with them. Only then can you make a good decision. It is very useful if the dentist – after giving a professional explanation – makes a written proposal about the planned treatment, telling you what it will cost.
