Handsome Male Smiling and Looking AwayIf you’re new to Elizabethtown and you’re on the hunt for a new dentist, or you’re looking to change dentists, you might be wondering how you can know which dentist is right for you. After all, there are so many to choose from. We know you’ll want to be comfortable with the dentist you choose and know you’re in good, qualified hands.

Our doctors want each and every patient to be well-informed before choosing a dentist, so in this blog, we’re going to give you the top qualities you should look for when choosing the right dentist for you.

Your Dentist Should Have Good Bedside Manner

When you visit a dentist in Elizabethtown, you should feel comfortable with him or her. Pay attention to how you are treated by their staff, including the front desk, the hygienist, and the dentist. Do they listen to your concerns? Do they answer your questions fully and in a way you can understand? Do they treat you with respect? Are they generally kind? Is the dentist thorough in his or her explanation of your oral health?

These are all questions you should consider when meeting a dentist for the first time. If your answer to any of these questions is less than positive, chances are that dentist isn’t the right fit for you.

At Clagett Dental, every member of our team values each and every patient who walks through our doors. In fact, our doctors have centered the entire practice around our patients. They want you to feel safe and welcomed—from your first phone call to your regular cleanings, and any procedures you could need.

Our doctors will never make you feel guilty about the state of your dental health, or pressure you into having a procedure you don’t want or need. Instead, they will educate you on your options and work with you to develop a treatment plan that is in your interest.

Your Dentist Should Be Trusted in the Community

Trust is a hard thing to gain and an easy thing to lose. When you ask for recommendations from friends and family for a dentist in Elizabethtown, you’ll get recommendations for doctors they know and trust. Additionally, if you ask friends and family about a dentist you’ve heard about, you could be met with positive or negative reactions. These recommendations, or lack thereof, are all based on a level of trust.

Our doctors at Clagett Dental have spent years building relationships and creating trust with their peers in the medical community, as well as the general community of Elizabethtown. Their positive reputation proceeds them through word-of-mouth, doctor referrals, and independent online reviews.
