What To Consider When Looking For A New Dentist.

When choosing a dentist, the deciding factor for a lot of people will be the proximity and convenience. However, when doing this, you need to consider if you are going to be getting the best dental care that you can. We have compiled a list of things you should look out for when trying to find a new dentist.

Check Credentials With The General Dental Council

It is quick an easy to search your dentist on google and make sure that their credentials are up to date. Visit the General Dental Council website where you can search for all dental professionals on the current GDC database.

NHS Or Private

Some dentists may offer a mix of private and NHS patients, whereas others may only offer one type of service. It is important that you understand which type of service your dentist can offer you before you commit to treatment.

Professionalism And Customer Service

It is quite easy to quickly notice the signs of good customer service. This is something that is very important to pick up on as a trip to the dentist can make some people quite wary. A helpful receptionist team and dental professionals are likely to help you feel more comfortable. At Newby Dental Practice are a very friendly team who would be happy to help with any concerns.

Dental Treatments Available

If you are looking for a particular treatment, it would be a good idea to check if it is available before starting with any other treatments. At Newby Dental Practice, we offer a wide range of treatments such as cosmetic treatments including, whitening and invisalign.

Emergency Treatments

Accidents happen and it is always nice to know that if you need assistance, your dentist will be there for you. Check if your dentist offers emergency appointments.


Ask friends and family where they go to the dentist and whether they would recommend it or not. Sometimes hearing from real people about real experiences can be the best way to find out if that dentist is the one for you.
