Shocking Diseases of the Mouth

(HealthDay News) -- It's important to find a dentist who is professional, takes good care of your teeth and with whom you are comfortable.

The American Dental Association suggests:

  • Choosing a dentist whose office has a convenient location and hours, and is in your insurance network.
  • Making sure you can communicate well with your dentist.
  • Choosing a dentist who thoroughly explains preventive care.
  • Choosing an office that offers flexible payment arrangements.
  • Selecting an office that keeps your records in a permanent file.
  • Looking for a dentist who considers your concerns, such as dental anxiety.
