The Steps of Choosing a Dentist
A dentist isn’t like a grocery store or auto repair shop—you can’t just go to the one nearest you or on the corner where you work. You need to take some time, do your research, and find a dentist in the St. Louis area that you can trust with your dental health. For starters, check the American Dental Association’s website for a member directory and schedule a consultation with dentists in your area . If the dentist has a hygienist or receptionist, discuss the costs of treatment and ask if the equipment is sterilized and serviced regularly.
