Have you ever wondered if your dentist is just working his job? How can you tell whether or not your dentist really cares about your oral health and teeth? We all remember those experiences where a salesperson, receptionist, or server appears to be “going through the motions.” They usually have no energy, no emotion, and no interest in their jobs. Their actions prove their poor attitude.
How to Tell Your Dentist Cares
Because of the many choices dentists, it’s essential to choose the right one for you. To make your selection easier, here is a check list to use during your search. The dentist you seek should:
- Listen with Care
Everyone wants someone who actively listens to you.
A great dentist teaches good habits for good oral health. He or she should communicate fine details pleasantly and interestingly.
- Respect Your Time and Resources
You deserve professional, efficient dental treatment. Check patient wait time in the office waiting room.
- Keep a Clean Office
Any office, doctor’s or not, should be clean and as germ-free as possible.
- Never Up-sell
Your dentist should not push you to buy a treatment or device you neither require nor want.
- Become Acquainted
You should expect to be much more than a file number. Choose a dentist who takes the time to get to know you.
- Develop Long-Term Relationships
Your dentist should be interested in you and your oral health throughout your life.
- Care about Staff
- Choose dentist who obviously cares for staff as well as clients. Happy staffers make a pleasant office environment and better dental treatments.

A great dentist appreciates you and treats you that way.
