things to consider when finding dentistORANGE CITY AND DELTONA, FL

On the search for finding a new dentist in Orange City? The task can seem daunting. How can you be sure that you will find the right dentist? Will the services offered be a good fit for your oral health needs? How about your dental insurance, will the dental office accept it? These questions and more are factors to consider when seeking a new dental office. Terry Soule, DDS, a family dentist in Orange City, wants to share four things to consider if you are looking for a new dentist to serve the oral health needs of you and your family.

  1. Review your dental insurance

Who you choose for your dentist can be determined by your health insurance coverage. For example, if you have an HMO plan, you must choose a dentist in the HMO network provided to you. Also, if you have a PPO plan, sticking to a dentist in the network can make a difference in your copayment, a.k.a. your out of pocket expenses. If you aren’t sure if Dr. Soule’s dental office accepts your insurance, just contact our office to find out.

  1. Ask for recommendations

When a friend or neighbor has a good experience with a healthcare provider, they usually are willing to offer a recommendation. So, ask your coworkers, family members, and even your physician for a referral. You also can search online for patient reviews to see what current and former patients have to say about the dentist you are considering.

  1. Look for convenient location, office hours, and services

Consider the location and office hours of the dental office. Do you need a dentist that’s closer to your home or work? Does the clinic offer appointments after typical working hours or on Saturdays? Are they flexible enough for your scheduling needs? These are important questions to ask the dentist during the initial consultation. The answers may help you make a more informed decision. Dr. Soule offers emergency dental care in Orange City. We are happy to meet you outside of our regular office hours if you experience a dental emergency.

  1. Schedule a consultation

Once you have found dentists that will work with your insurance plan, begin calling or visiting several of them before making a final decision. A few questions to ask: How far in advance am I able to schedule checkups and cleanings? Are all dental procedures completed in this office, or do you refer your patients to other physicians for more complex procedures? The initial consultation also will give you a chance to check out the inner workings of the practice. You can get a better sense of customer service, cleanliness, and meet the doctor to be sure they will be a good fit for your needs.
