Question: January means the beginning of a new year and I am preparing to make a dental appointment after procrastinating for the last couple of years.  I see ads in the yellow pages, newspapers and magazines.  What is the best way to confidently select a dentist in the Sterling Heights area of Macomb County, Michigan?

Answer: I would attempt to choose a Dentist in the Sterling Heights area of Macomb County, Michigan by first asking your friends and family who they go to and see if they are happy with the dental treatment they are receiving.  Personal referrals are the best way to confidently choose your Sterling Heights area  Dentist. Next, it is important to research out the dentist you are considering going to and ask questions like:

  • Is the Dentist qualified to treat your specific need?
  • Does the Dentist have convenient hours?
  • When calling their Dental Office are you treated in a friendly manner or is the dental receptionist rude?
  • A great tool is using the internet to research the dental office and almost meet the dentist and dental  team by visiting their web site.  It should also be possible to make a call and meet the dentist.

I believe it is critical that the dentist is approachable and not too busy to take their time and listen to your concerns and answer your questions.  If the above describes what you are looking for why not give us a call and try us out.  If you are pleased with your dental  treatment you have been receiving then bravo to you and your dentist.
