Looking for a new Vancouver Dentist?
Do you live in the Vancouver area, and are you looking for a new dentist? Your oral health is so important; in fact, oral health has been linked to overall health, with poor oral health contributing to conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. It is therefore highly recommended that you maintain regular dental visits, and preferably with the same dentist. This way, you will develop a relationship with the dentist, who will know of your dental and medical history and can monitor any changes. It’s also important that you feel comfortable with your dentist, and that you feel free to communicate openly with him or her regarding your oral health and oral hygiene routine. Our team here at Dr. Michael Pauls’ office in Vancouver, BC would like to share some tips with you on how to find the right dentist for you.
First of all, it’s a good idea to visit the dental clinic you are considering before booking your first appointment. This will give you a feel for the cleanliness, staff, and overall environment in the clinic. Some dentists also offer a virtual office tour on their website, which can also serve to give you an idea of how comfortable you will be in the dentist’s chair.
It’s also a good idea to inquire about the services the dentists provides. While all dentists in BC must have proper training and qualifications, dentists will have different areas that they specialize in. For example, if you are interested in having a lot of cosmetic dental work done, it would be good to find a dentist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry so that you don’t wind up getting referred to someone else. In addition, if you have children or are planning on starting a family, you may want to consider finding a dentist who will be open to treating all members of your family so that you can all receive your dental care at the same office.
Location is another aspect to consider. It is best to find a dentist that is close to you, to avoid long commutes. Some patients like to have a dentist that is close to where they work, so that they can come in for their regular checkups during lunch hour or before or after work.
We are pleased to announce that our office in South Vancouver is currently accepting new patients. If you are looking for a new Vancouver dentist, feel free to call or come by. We would be happy to show you around our clinic and answer any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you!
