Searching for a good dentist is as important as searching for a good medical doctor. It is important to do your homework and research each of your options very well prior to making any final decisions. At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we place emphasis on both the cosmetic and general dental care of each of our patients. Without good general and preventative care, the effort and expense of cosmetic care will not offer lasting results.
We place the highest level of concern on all of the dental maintenance and cosmetic needs you bring to us from the moment you walk through our doors. We employ the most advanced techniques and technology in all of our procedures whether they are very easily performed or extremely difficult and detailed. To find out more about the services avaiable at our practice, please call (800) 672-8518 today.
The dentist you choose should have received up-to-date training and possess a high level of proven skills, with well-rounded education in both general dentistry and in any specialty fields that are regularly practiced. They should be considered reputable professionals in all chosen fields of dental practice and they should come highly recommended by other dentists or people you trust. Patti Swaintek-Lamb, DMD, received her degrees from prestigious universities and has continued to pursue training in advanced dental treatments.
Experience is another major factor when choosing a good general dentist for yourself or for your family. Training is the foundation, but experience and a good reputation for skills, professionalism and communication with patients is a must for any growing or established practice.
You should focus on your specific needs when determining the type of dentist you are looking for. If you know you will need dental work such as bridges or crowns, it is in your best interests to seek a dentist who is known for performing great work in these areas. A dentist who has placed many dental implants and has a great reputation in that area, but has only done a few bridges or crowns, is probably not the best choice to meet your needs.
The best thing you can do for yourself when choosing a general dentist is to ask a lot of questions about:
- The dentist
- The practice
- The office staff, including the hygienists and dental assistants
- The hygienists
- The dental assistants
- The procedures they perform
- The technologies they use
- The techniques they use
- Pictures of past procedures (before and after)
Also, make a list of other questions you would like answers to and be sure to take them with you when you go to your initial consultation. A good dentist will be happy to take the time to talk to you and completely answer any questions you may have.
