With nearly 200,000 dentists in the United States, you may not be sure how to pick a dentist. Don’t be overwhelmed—we have 3 resources to make your dentist decision easier.
Here’s how to pick a dentist:
Get Referrals and Recommendations
Make the most of your connections. Reach out to your doctor, friends, family and coworkers for dentist recommendations. Relocating? Before you move, ask your current dental office for a recommendation.
Research Dental Societies
Seek advice from local dental societies in your area. The New Jersey Dental Association has a search tool to help you find an ADA member dentist. The Connecticut State Dental Association also has an ADA dentist search tool.
