Once you've determined that you do in fact need a new dentist, there are several ways to move forward. Becoming acquainted with local offices in your area is a good idea; this is especially relevant in the case of somebody moving to a new home. The ADA offers online tools to help you find somebody in your neighborhood within their organization, ensuring that you are able to find somebody who is properly trained; your insurance provider (if applicable) should offer something similar that will allow you to find local dentists within their network. Word of mouth is another way that good dentists get connected with their clientele, as are review aggregation platforms such as Yelp; thorough research will save you time and money in the long run. After gathering enough the information of several offices, you can start paring down the options and eventually determine which is best for you.
A good place to begin is first identifying your needs as a patient and assessing how well each candidate would be equipped to handle your needs and the needs of your family. Another factor will be cost and whether or not their services will be covered by your insurance plan. Sheer proximity should also be considered, even if only as a measure of convenience. Once you've narrowed the search down, scheduling consultations with each is a great way to meet the dentist and get a feel for their office and practice.
Once you've made your decision, the rest is simple; have your records transferred from your previous dentist and register your current contact and insurance information with them. Once you've made it this far, all you have to do is make and keep your semi-annual appointments and your teeth will have a new place to call home.
