Our Glendale Dentist Shares More About Questions You Should Be Asking Your Dentist

Written by Dr. McKay on Apr 20, 2021

Our Glendale dentists have found that the more you are able to get to know your dental team, the more comfortable you will feel in the dentist’s chairs. We strongly encourage our patients to communicate with their team and to ask questions, whenever they come up. For example, you can talk to your dentist about: 

Dental Philosophy

Ask your dentist about what they consider to be the most important priorities in their office. Do they offer aesthetic cosmetic treatments to improve dental aesthetics? Do they provide comprehensive restorative care? Take the time to find a dental team with whom you share values and priorities. 

Innovative Technologies

The field of dentistry is constantly evolving and improving. Talk to your dental team about what kinds of technologies they’ve incorporated into their practice. Dental implant technology, for example, is far and away the gold-standard for tooth replacement care. Our team also uses Invisalign as an alternative to metal orthodontic braces.

Flexible Scheduling

We make it a point to offer flexible scheduling options, so that you can get the care you need, exactly when you need it. If you’ve found it difficult to fit dental care into your schedule, or if you are trying to coordinate care for multiple family members, give us a call.  

Plan For Emergencies

We encourage you to figure out to whom you are supposed to reach out in case of emergency, as well as how, exactly you should contact them. Is there a specific emergency number that you need to call, for example? In case of dental trauma, you can contact our team by calling our regular office number.  

As you go through this process you will probably come up with even more questions for your dental team. If you are ready to speak to a member of our Glendale dental team, just give our office or use the Contact Us page on our site to get started.
