Due to the COVID-19 “Coronavirus” outbreak the Minnesota Dental Board, Minnesota Dental Association, and American Dental Association have strongly recommended dental offices postpone non-urgent appointments for two weeks starting Tuesday March 17th. During these next few weeks if you have a dental emergency please call our office.  We will have a staff member available during most of our normal business hours and are able to treat emergencies for patients who are asymptomatic and who have not been in contact with people with symptoms.

Are you looking for a new dentist for your family? Whether you recently relocated or your current dentist is retiring, finding a modern dental office may seem a bit intimidating. With all the highly-qualified dentists in your area, how do you know which is the right choice for your family? 

If you approach it methodically, it’s not a complicated process, but you do need to know what qualities to look for and which questions to ask. And remember that if you become a patient and aren’t satisfied, you have every right to find a great dentist in Rochester, MN who is a better fit for you.

Starting Your Search with Reviews

Word of mouth referrals are one of the best sources for finding a new family dentist. Recommendations from family and friends you know and trust are the best ways to gauge how a dental practice is doing. 

Another excellent source for information about a particular dentist is online reviews. You’ll get to hear what others who you don’t have to say about the dental office.

Schedule a Dental Visit

You’ve checked with friends, read reviews, and selected a few dentists in the Rochester, MN area that seem to meet your needs. First, check their practice websites for more in-depth information about the services and care they offer. But the best way to determine if a particular dentist is a good fit is to schedule an office visit. 

Pay Attention to First Impressions

When you arrive at this dental practice, does the team immediately greet you? Do you feel welcomed, or do you have to wait to be noticed? Does the staff seem friendly and relaxed? If so, it’s a good sign that you’re in a well-run dental practice where the dental team isn’t stressed-out or overworked. 

Prepare Questions for the Dentist

You know what your family’s dental needs are, so prepare questions that are unique to you. Do you have a toddler ready for their first dental visits? Do you have dental anxiety? Are there certain dental conditions you’re facing like broken or missing teeth? Does specific dental technology interest you?
