Five Questions to Ask Your Lewisburg Dentist By Dr. Larry Winans

You deserve the best dental care available in Lewisburg. So don’t just trust an ad you read in the Yellow Pages to get the information you need about your Lewisburg dentist. Ask your Lewisburg dentist these five questions, and you’ll be armed with the information you need to make the best decisions for your oral health.

1. Training.

Ask your dentist about the training he or she has in the procedure being recommended. Ask when the last course or training in that particular procedure was completed. If your dentist is placing porcelain veneers on your teeth, but hasn’t had recent training, he or she may not have the most current tools or technologies or have mastered the latest techniques. That can make a big difference in your results.

2. Infection Control.

Infection Control in your Lewisburg dental practice is important in protecting both your health and the dentist’s. For your safety, ask your dentist what infection control protocols the office follows.

3. How Often Do You Do This Procedure?

Whether it’s a procedure required to restore health or function, like root canal therapy, or elective treatment like dental bonding, ask how often the dentist does the procedure. You want to make sure your Lewisburg dentist offers the expertise you expect.

4. Can I See Photos of the Work You’ve Done?

Treatments from restorative dental care – crowns, bridges, dentures, implants – to cosmetic treatment – whitening, veneers, bonding, makeovers – your Lewisburg dentist should have before and after photos of his or her patients. Ask to see photos of the type of procedure you’re going to have

5. Do You Have Any Patient Testimonials?

You can ask your Lewisburg dentist a million question and look pictures, but the words of actual patients tell the real story. So ask your dentist if you can read any patient testimonials. Reading the stories of people who were once in your same position can give you all the comfort and confidence you need.

If you would like to ask me any of these questions, I’d be happy to answer! Just call me at my Lewisburg dental practice.
