Finding A Sydney Dentist – Frequently Asked Questions-windjview

UnCategorized Finding a dentist can feel like a daunting task. There are so many dentists out there, how do you decide who to choose? If you’re looking for a dentist in Sydney, then you’ll want to read this list of frequently asked questions that will help you in your search for a new dental provider. How do I find a Sydney Dentist? The best method of finding a dentist is to ask for referrals from friends and family. Most people either have a dentist they love, or a dentist they only feel so-so about. If they love their dentist, they are likely to rave about them. Most of us see our dentist’s twice a year – and our regular doctor only once a year for our annual physical, so make sure you find a dentist you like. If your friends and family don’t have a good recommendation, try local online provider listings or the Australian Dental Association who can refer you to several dentists. What Credentials Should my Dentist Have? Your dentist should be accredited by the Australian Dental Council (ADC). In order to be accredited by the ADC the dentist will have had to complete the required schooling (and usually a specialized degree) plus pass the ADC exam. Make sure you ask for these credentials when you are interviewing new dentists. You may also want to ask for a few patient referrals to get an idea of how current patients feel about that particular dentist. How Do I Transfer Records? Once you have located a dentist who has the right credentials and who you feel you can have a good doctor/patient relationship with, it’s time to transfer your records from your old dentist. You can either have your new dentist request the records from the old provider, or you can simply write a note to the old dentist asking that they send the records to the new one. If you’ve had a long term relationship with your old dentist, it might be a nice courtesy to let them know you are changing providers – and if you care to tell them, give them the reason why. Check with your new dentist after a few weeks of making the records request to ensure that the files were received. Conclusion The above FAQ hopefully has answered several of your questions regarding finding a great Sydney dentist. Using the information above you should be able to find a qualified dentist who can help you for years to come. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
