The Mississippi Dental Association website, www.msdental.org, is a useful place to start in finding a dentist. Select “For the Public” from the home page and then “Find a Dentist”to find or verify a dentist. You can also seek referrals from people you know who’ve had dental care in the area.
Consider the following to find the best dentist for your needs.
- Are the dentist’s office hours convenient for your schedule?
- Is the dental office close to your home or office?
- How are dental emergencies handled?
- Does the office appear to be clean and well organized?
- Is the staff helpful and friendly?
- What are the dental office’s financial policies and how is insurance handled?
