Choosing a Dentist

Question: I’ve been trying to choose a new dentist and recently saw an advertisement for a dentist promising the latest and greatest in dental technology, and all at incredibly low prices. He even offered free tooth whitening with the first cleaning. It seems like a good deal, but am I missing something?

Answer: Very often, dental practices will advertise free or reduced fee services in an effort to bring in more patients. They may also claim to have better technology than their competitor down the street, but what really matters when it comes to choosing and staying with a dentist is how patients are treated by the dentists and staff. At Mukwonago Family Dentistry, we are very proud of our state-of-the-art facility, but what we really take pride in is our dedication to the needs of our patients and our community, a community we have been a part of for over 40 years. So it’s best not to simply look at a price list or shiny new piece of equipment when selecting a dentist, but rather to think about how you are treated as a person by the dentists and staff. Once you feel comfortable and cared for, you will know you are in the right place.
