Three Factors to Consider When Choosing a Dental Clinic for Oral Care
So you just moved to Edmonton and you don’t know anyone yet. You feel the need to see a dentist but who do you ask? With no information available, just addresses of the nearest dental clinic in Edmonton, how can you choose the best dental clinic? Before you decide to visit a walk-in dental clinic in Edmonton, here are three things that you can consider first.
The Façade and Staff of the Dental Clinic
When you walk into a dental clinic, it should scream, ‘I am a dental clinic’. The façade should show you pictures of people with healthy smiles and white teeth. When you get inside the clinic, you should be greeted by its friendly staff with big smiles and healthy teeth as well.
As for the staff, that includes the dentists of the clinic. The dentist should always be ‘in’ and not running late. If the staff tells you that the doctor is running late, better walk away and find a different dental clinic to trust.
So you decided to find a walk-in dental clinic in Edmonton, and the dentist is in. Check the dentist to see how approachable and friendly he or she is. Appreciate his/her questions. Answer them fully. If you are there to have a denture replacement and the dentist suggests different options, listen soundly to the advice given. It means he/she cares for your well-being even if you are a walk-in patient.
The Price List
Ask for their established price rate. Most dental clinics have an established price to make it easier for their customers to make a decision. Once you see their price list, you can now decide whether you will stick with them or you will find a cheaper dental service.
Don’t hesitate to bargain as well. Some dentists can offer you a deal if they know that you will stick with them for your oral care.
