Your Guide to Finding Affordable Dentists

Dentist Selection

Finding a dentist in South Philadelphia may not be as simple as you think. There are plenty of affordable dentists to choose from, but entrusting your oral health to someone you have no prior experience with can be a little scary. Changing dentists can have a huge impact on your health, your family, and your budget. Ideally, your relationship with your dentist should last for many years, so it is worth the effort to do your homework.

Finding a dentist in South Philadelphia begins with determining your priorities. Ask yourself the following questions about prospective dentists to eliminate dentists who don’t meet your criteria.

  • Is the dentist convenient to my home, work, or school?
  • Does the dentist participate in my insurance plan?
  • Does the dentist offer payment options for out-of-pocket expenses?
  • Does the dentist meet my specific requirements, such as offering conscious sedation or providing handicap accessibility?

When you’ve narrowed your choices to several local dentists in South Philadelphia, ask specific questions about each dentist. Most of this research can be conducted over the phone, and it will be a good way to determine if a clinic’s office staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful.

  • What education, credentials, and experience does the dentist have?
  • Does the dentist offer the latest advanced treatments and technologies?
  • Will the dentist discuss my options and procedure costs before performing any work?
  • What can I expect during the first appointment?
  • How does the dentist handle after-hours and weekend emergencies?

If you’re happy with the answers from a particular dentist, make an appointment. The first visit will determine if you feel comfortable with the dentist and office staff. You should be at ease with your chosen dentist, so if you aren’t satisfied, don’t compromise.
