Spokane Dentists

Updated on May 17, 2010

Dentists in Spokane

It certainly seems like it shouldn't be all that difficult to find a dentist in Spokane, and in a lot of ways it isn't. The problem is that there is a difference between finding a dentist and finding a good dentist. A good dentist is is one that makes you feel comfortable, it's nerve racking enough to be in the dentists chair without having a dentist who ads to your discomfort. Unfortunately the huge number of Spokane dentists makes it impractical to visit all of them before you make your choice, so you are going to need another way to decide.

Many people think that the way to find a dentist is to open the Yellow Pages, and sure this works, the problem is that there is no way to know how good the dentist you choose this way is. Another common approach is to ask your friends and family if they are happy with their dentist. This is a reasonable way to choose a dentist but you need to keep in mind that just because a friend likes their dentist doesn't mean that you will feel the same way about him. It is becoming more and more common for people to use the internet to research potential dentists, and there is no shortage of websites that offer reviews of Spokane dentists. Again the problem here is that just because a dentist has good reviews doesn't mean that you will like them. At best these approaches should be used as a way to compile a list of potential dentist who can be investigated further.

Once you have your list of potential dentists you are going to need to start visiting them in order to determine if they are a good fit for you. Most people start by asking about the dentist qualifications, which is alright but not really a huge factor. You can assume that all Spokane dentists are dental school graduates and that they are properly licensed. You also shouldn't put to much emphasis on where they went to school, all dental schools turn out dentists who rank from excellent to below average. The more important qualifications to concern yourself with are his training and experience with any specialized procedures. No dentist could possibly be proficient in every dental procedure that is currently available, so you will want to make sure that your dentist is qualified to perform any procedures you are likely to need.

For most people the biggest factor in their decision is location, people like to choose a dentist who is located near to where they live or work. This is fine if you can find a dentist who is close by and that you are comfortable with. Remember most people only see their dentist twice a year so you should focus on finding a dentist you like rather than one who is located close by. Since a lot of people can't take time off of work to see the dentist a lot of Spokane dentists have started to open early in the morning or to stay open into the evening so that people can make appointments around their work schedules.
