How to Choose a Dental Office That’s Right for Your Family

Are you looking for a dental office in the Salt Lake City area that is right for you and your family? With so many choices available, it is important to understand the considerations that matter to you.  

For instance, is overall cost the most important thing to you, or do you want a dental team that can handle all your dentistry needs with compassion, concern, and gentle hands?

At Comprehensive Dental Wellness in Salt Lake City, UT, Dr. Rod Gleave and his team understand that what patients want is important when looking for a dental office for your family.

Does the dental office take your insurance?

While not everyone has dental insurance, many patients do. Before you set an appointment with a dentist, you should find out if they take your insurance. You should also understand your deductible, copays, and percentages.

In addition, you should understand what your insurance covers.

For instance, your dental insurance status won’t matter if you want cosmetic dentistry. In other words, if you are looking for a dentist who performs teeth whitening or places porcelain veneers, insurance does not matter, as they won’t cover it. At this point, the question becomes, “How will the dental office work with me when it comes to financing?”

Aside from your out of pocket cost for the dental work you need, if all else is equal, you have other more important things to consider. Sometimes, however, even if the finances are a bit different, you may want to think about paying a bit more for services you can trust.

Consider: Would you rather have a highly experienced dentist crafting your veneers to fit your face shape and anatomy perfectly, or do you just want to go with the most economical option?

Dr. Gleave has three decades of experience and has spent thousands of hours in continuing education. It’s hard to compete with that. Especially when you hear what his patients have to say about the entire team at Comprehensive Dental Wellness.

What do others have to say about the dentist and dental team?

The best way to find a dental office for you and your family may be by asking a family member or friend. After all, someone who cares about you wouldn’t steer you wrong, would they?

Well, it depends. Does your friend or family member understand what your needs are when it comes to a dental office? Sure, your mother cares about you, but does her dentist perform dentistry on children? It’s worth looking into the things that are important to you.

Of course, if you are wanting porcelain veneers and your coworker shows up with a stunning new smile thanks to her smile makeover with veneers, that can be a strong recommendation.

Online reviews can sometimes be the best recommendation. While this may not hold true for a “gimmick” product from a company that forces all the employees to post numerous positive reviews, this isn’t typically the case for a dentist’s office.

Read the reviews while considering what is important to you. If cleanliness is your thing and every other review talks about how sparkling clean the dentist’s office is, you can probably trust that. If you are most concerned with customer service or positive outcomes, what do real patients have to say about those things?

At Comprehensive Dental Wellness, we are transparent with all our reviews. You can go here to watch videos and read what our patients have to say about us.

Does the dental office offer the services your family needs?

If you have young children, that is absolutely a consideration. Not all dentist offices care for pediatrics. Do you need a root canal? Are you missing a tooth and considering a dental implant? Just need a general dentist to perform cleanings and exams? Require restorations? Maybe you want to improve the aesthetics of your smile?

If you have several dentistry needs, you may want to choose a dentist who can meet all your needs, so that you don’t have to be referred out to someone else.

If you are looking for a dental office for your family in the Salt Lake City area, look no farther.

Dr. Gleave and his friendly, compassionate team can handle most dentistry needs—even for pediatrics—including preventive, cosmetic, restorative, oral surgery, orthodontics, and dental emergencies. In addition, he offers sedation dentistry for patients who suffer from dental anxiety.
