How to Choose a Danforth Dentist for Your Family’s Oral Care Needs

Consider these things while choosing your next dental care provider!

When it comes to your and your family’s oral health needs, you deserve nothing short of expert and compassionate care from your dentist and oral care team.

That’s why it’s important to take certain things into consideration during your search for a new dentist on the Danforth. After all, it’s not like you’re going to be visiting a new dentist every time you’re due for a dental check-up or other procedure. Your dentist should be with you and your family for the long haul - so the decision you make is quite an important one!

With that being said, let’s talk about some of the most important factors for consideration to help ensure you choose wisely:

Consider convenience of location and schedule flexibility

It’s always best to choose a dentist located in your city or area for convenience purposes. For instance, if a dental emergency were to arise unexpectedly (as they do), you’ll want to be just minutes away from the prompt care that you or your family member will require. The quicker you’re able to get to a professional after a dental accident, the better the prognosis for a successful treatment will be. (If you’re wondering… yes, our Dr. Fenn offers emergency dentistry!)

Furthermore, consider the clinic’s hours of operation and ask yourself if it agrees with your specific lifestyle and availability. Choosing a clinic that is close by and flexible or accommodating to your and your family’s schedule means you’ll be more inclined to visit as often as you should for your routine check-ups and cleanings, or for any other dental treatments you may require.

Research the dentist’s experience, qualifications, and dental services offered

Nobody ever argued with “practice makes perfect”. Your dentist should have years of experience and qualifications under their belt, like Dr. Maureen Fenn with over 20 years practicing in the field of dentistry. You never know what kind of oral health issue may present itself in you or your little ones - and having a knowledgeable and skilled dentist that knows just what to do about it is critical. The more experience your dentist has, the lower the risk for any potential problems or side-effects during or following a procedure.

Additionally, you’ll want to ensure that the list of services offered by your new Toronto dentist cater to your and your family’s specific dental care needs. This should ideally include a comprehensive range of procedures from preventive and restorative dentistry to cosmetic dentistry services. It’s also important to ensure that your dentist is capable of performing more complex dental procedures should any need for that arise.

Ensure the dentist can make you and your family feel comfortable and at ease

Last, but certainly not least, choosing a dentist that you and your family can wholeheartedly trust and feel comfortable around is paramount. You’ll also want to feel like you can easily communicate with your dentist about your specific needs and goals when it comes to your smile, and should feel listened to and understood without ever feeling rushed. And, of course, the atmosphere of the dental clinic should make you feel comfortable and safe.

Finding a dentist that truly cares about their patients and their oral health, like our compassionate Dr. Fenn, will ensure a positive dental care experience every time you visit - which, ultimately, is conducive to a healthy smile and attitude toward dental care for life!
