Dental Treatments Available at Glendair Dental

If you’re new to an area or you simply feel it’s time to change to a different practice, it can be hard to know how to go about choosing the right dentist for you or your family. What dental services will you need? What factors should you consider? Is there an element of gut instinct?

To help you choose the right dentist for you – and we strongly hope that will be Glendair Dental Practice – we’ve put together a handy checklist of factors you might want to consider:

Does the practice have reviews and word of mouth recommendations?

Word of mouth recommendations from friends and family who live locally are always a good starting place when it comes to choosing the right dentist. Which dentists are your friends or loved ones registered with? What do they like about their dentist and/or practice? What do they dislike?

If you don’t know anyone nearby, then try looking at a practice’s reviews on Facebook or on Google as these are likely to give a balanced view of what existing patients think of the treatment and services they receive.

What treatments are available through the practice?

Although most dentists offer services such as routine check-ups, hygienist appointments, crowns, bridges and fillings, not all dentists will offer more specialist cosmetic treatments such as braces, dental implants, teeth whitening or air polishing and more. It’s a good idea to think about what services you might like to access in the future, as well as right now, or services that you might want for your children, such as children’s braces.

How experienced is your dentist?

It’s perfectly acceptable to ask your dentist what experience they have: When and where did they qualify? How have they shaped their career to date? What are their specific interests and areas of expertise?

In the UK, dental professionals, including dentists, dental nurses and hygienists, must be registered with the General Dental Council, while their practices should be registered with and inspected regularly by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). You can read the latest CQC report about Glendair Dental Practice here – we were very proud to be founding meeting high standards in all areas.

What qualifications does your dentist have?

A general dentist must have successfully completed five years of undergraduate training to be awarded a Bachelor of Dental Surgery. However, this is usually just the beginning. Most dentists will continue to achieve new knowledge and qualifications throughout their career. It’s a good idea to ask your dentist about their qualifications and membership of professional bodies.

Where is the practice located and how easy will it be for you to get to appointments?

In our experience, when people find a dentist they like and trust, they’re often willing to travel to see them. However, we appreciate that when you’re first looking for the right dentist, the convenience of their location is likely to be a deciding factor.

As well researching dentists that are close to home, work or school, it’s important to consider transport routes, parking and access, especially if you have mobility issues or young children in a pushchair. At Glendair Dental Practice, for example, we have large ground floor surgeries that are ideal for wheelchairs, walking frames or prams/pushchairs. We also have handrails, toilets for patients with disabilities, and a hearing loop.

Can you visit the practice before you sign up as a patient?

When it comes to choosing the right dentist, gut instinct is definitely a factor. How you feel when you walk into reception for the first time can help you decide whether you’ve found your new dental practice. How welcoming are the staff? Do you feel comfortable in the reception area? Do you feel confident that you can ask questions or express your needs?

At Glendair Dental Practice in Alfreton, Derby, we don’t think it’s fair that you should pay for an appointment before you’ve had a chance to get to know us, which is why we offer a free initial consultation for new patients. This takes about 30 minutes and is a chance for you to have a look around and find out how we can support your dental health now and in the future.

If you’re looking for a dentist in or around Alfreton, you’re welcome to book your free initial consultation at Glendair Dental Practice to experience being a patient first-hand.
