The internet has made it easier than ever before to find the best dentist in Midtown Manhattan. You can access all the information you need with a few clicks or searches, but the volume of information available can be a bit overwhelming. What are the most important things to look for? How can you tell if a dentist is right for you? Here are some suggestions to assist you in making your decision.
Word-of-mouth referrals are still the most powerful forms of marketing for dentists, even in the information age, because they come from people you trust. You pay attention when a friend or family member raves about their dentist! That’s why we’re so proud that many of our new patients come to us as the result of a referral from an existing patient.
Read online reviews
Look for reviews that are relevant to your needs rather than reading every single review written about a dentist. Recent reviews should be given greater weight than earlier reviews because they are more likely to reflect a practice's current technology, protocols and staff members.
Make sure the practice fits your needs
Starting with recommendations and reviews can help you narrow down your options, but the websites of the dentists you're considering are even more important because they can help you determine whether or not a practice is a good fit for your needs. Here are some things to think about:
- Services offered – Because not every dental practice provides every dental service, double-check that any practice you're considering offers the treatments and procedures you require now or foresee needing or wanting in the future. At Midtown Dental Care Associates, we’re one of the few practices able to offer a range of dental specialties all under one roof.
- Technology – In dentistry, technology changes and evolves at a rapid pace, so it’s important to make sure any dentist you see uses the most up-to-date equipment for better outcomes and a more comfortable experience. We’re pleased to offer a number of advanced technologies at Midtown Dental Care Associates, including the Sirona Teneo treatment center, 3D cone beam imaging, digital impressions (eliminating the need for messy impressions), same-day crowns, digital x-rays, early cavity detection, and intraoral cameras.
Look at credentials
Our dentists are passionate about continuing education, and stay current in their specializations through memberships in a number of dental organizations, including the American Dental Association, New York State Dental Association, International Academy of Facial Aesthetics, the Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Periodontology and more.
