Ask your family, friends, and trusted co-workers.

Find out where the office is located is it close to you (meaning less than 50 kilometers), is it easy to get to?

Do they offer the services you need? If you have kids you will want to know if they are a family dental clinic or have a pediatric dentist in the office. You may need dentures, do they do dentures? Can they deal with kids who are extremely fearful or anxious about dental appointment and procedures or even adults for that matter?

What are their hours and are they convenient enough to fit your schedule. Do they have evening and maybe Saturday appointments available?

Do they provide emergency dental care? If so what is the number you should call for that?

Checking out the office

Is the office clean? Does it have a warm and inviting atmosphere?

What about the staff are they friendly and helpful?

What type of insurance do they take?

What forms of payments do they accept?

It really isn’t a difficult task or have to be a headache, just make a list of what you need to ask and check on as far as the office and staff.

Also, do a hello visit with the staff and Dentist in Waterloo to make sure they offer what you need.
