Fortunately for you, the team at Apilado Family Dentistry has put together a list of the qualities that every great dentist has, so whether you’re looking for a dentist in El Paso or you’re somewhere else in the world, these are the qualities to use during your search.

Your Dentist Should…

Be Friendly

We’ve talked about it in the past, but because so many people have a fear of making the trip to the dentist’s office it’s incredibly important that the dentist be friendly. This goes a long way because it can help to calm nerves, soothe anxiety, and ease fear away. Is this the main criteria you should use to judge a particular dentist? No, but we can say with absolute certainty that having a dentist who is friendly goes a long way towards helping a patient feel at ease when they’re in the examination chair.

Be Honest

It’s also incredibly important that your dentist be honest. Unfortunately we’ve heard about a patient coming in who had been told that he or she had some cavities. Although it is not common, this is a tactic that is sometimes employed by less-than-honest dentists who are simply trying to cash in. Like a mechanic that relies on a customer to not know anything about a car, these dishonest dentists often count on you to trust them implicitly.

Healthy smiles for the whole family at our El Paso dentistry.

That’s why it’s so important to find a dentist who is honest and that other people trust. Speaking of which, your dentist should also…

Be Well-Reviewed

Of course some exceptions will have to be made for dentists who are new to the business or to the area, but in general it’s perfectly reasonable to count on a dentist who has been open for awhile and amassed a few reviews to give yourself a picture of what his or her practice is like. Fortunately for you if you’re in the El Paso area, our team has an average of 4.7 stars on Google and 4.5 stars on Facebook as of the time of this writing.
