Choosing a Dentist

How to Choose a Dentist in Hawaii

Choosing a dentist can be a daunting task.  Where do you start?  How do you know if you will like the dentist?  People find dentists a few different ways.  They ask friends or family for recommendations, they ask their primary care physician for a recommendation, they do an online search for dentists in their area, or they choose one with aid from their dental insurance provider.

How to Choose a Dentist

When choosing a dentist, feel free to visit more than one office until you find one that is the right fit for you.  You should look for these things:

  • Office hours that fit with your schedule
  • The dentist’s training and education
  • Does the dentist attend continuing education workshops?
  • What does the dentist recommend for preventative dentistry?
  • Does the dentist participate with your dental health plan?
  • Is the staff friendly and helpful?
  • Do the operatories appear clean and sanitary?
