How to Select Your New College Station Dentist

If you’ve recently moved to College Station, TX, or are for any reason searching for a new dentist, it’s important to assess your options since your oral health depends on the quality of your dentist.

There are many factors to consider when selecting a new dentist, but these 4 should be a priority:

  1. Accessibility: Is the dentists’ office near your home or office? Is they flexible with appointments, including after-hour and weekend appointments if necessary? Do they have a plan to accommodate patients with dental emergencies?
  2. Services: You want a general dental practitioner who will handle regular check-ups and simpler procedures, but you also want someone skilled in specialties like braces, periodontal surgery, and cosmetic dentistry.
  3. Advanced Equipment: Not every dentist offers cutting-edge technologies like CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing) for same day crowns or laser-assisted periodontal surgery. The dentist who invests in the best equipment will be better equipped to serve you more efficiently.
  4. Proven Results: Look for a before/after “gallery” on the office wall or in a photo book. Check with the BBB and ADA, and see if you can talk to any past patients willing to verify the dentist’s quality of work.
