Find an Affordable Dentist You Can Trust

Dentist Selection

Whether you are new to South Bend and need a dentist who accepts your dental plan, or you are simply ready for a change, the impact of your decision is significant. Because you are entrusting your health and wellness to a complete stranger, it’s important to determine exactly what your needs are. Ideally, you want a doctor-patient relationship that will last for decades. The process of finding a dentist in South Bend can be as simple as asking friends and neighbors for recommendations, but for many people, the task is more challenging. Here are a few tips to help you locate qualified, affordable dentists in the area.

Cover the Basics First

The first step in finding local dentists in South Bend is to determine your basic priorities. Ask yourself the following questions about prospective dentists to weed out those who don’t meet your criteria.

  • Is the dentist close enough to my home, work or school to make appointments convenient?
  • Does the dentist meet my specific requirements such as conscious sedation options or handicap accessibility?
  • Does the dentist participate in my insurance plan’s network?
  • What are my payment options for out-of-pocket expenses?

Explore the Specifics

Once you’ve narrowed your selection, ask more specific questions about each dentist you are considering. You can conduct most of this research over the phone, and it will be a good way to determine if a clinic’s office staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful.

  • What type of educational background, credentials, and experience does the dentist have?
  • What can I expect to occur during the first appointment?
  • Will the dentist review my options and procedure costs before performing any work?
  • How does the dentist handle after-hours and weekend emergencies?
  • Does the dentist offer the latest advanced treatments and technologies?

Choose Carefully

When you’re satisfied with answers from a particular dentist, make an appointment. The first visit will determine if you feel comfortable with the dentist and office staff. If you aren’t satisfied, don’t compromise; you should be completely at ease with your chosen dentist.
