Finding the Right Dentist for You

Posted on June 26th, 2018 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

Choosing the right dentist is a difficult task, especially if you’re looking for dentists in Chicago. With so many options, it’s hard not to be overwhelmed. Our recommendation is to take your time choosing a dentist, and don’t wait for an emergency. There are several things to think about during your search for the right dental specialist.

Location and Hours

Start with the basics. Is the office easy to get to from your home or work? Do the hours seem flexible with your schedule? By selecting a dentist with convenient hours and location it will be much easier to make appointments and arrive on time.

Cost

If you have dental benefits, you’ll want to make sure the dental office will accept your insurance. Additionally, check if they take multiple payment options so you aren’t blindsided after your appointment. Remember that costs vary by dentists, so try to get an estimate of common procedures before committing to one practice.

Comfort

Dental appointments will be miserable if you don’t find an office and dentist you’re comfortable with. Make sure you feel able to ask them questions and explain symptoms. Does the dentist hear and understand your concerns?

Qualifications

This may go without saying, but ensure your dentist is licensed to practice. You can usually find this information online by looking at your state’s dental boards website. Here you can also determine whether or not any disciplinary action has been taken against them.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
