The Three Things to Consider When Looking for a New Family Dentist

Going to the dentist is a personal experience. Families quickly become comfortable with their dental team, and often stick with them for years. This is an ideal situation, but we all know that life comes at us fast. Maybe you are new to Tampa or the surrounding areas of Odessa, Town & Country, Lutz, or Carrollwood. You may have also become frustrated with your current provider. No matter the reason, you have found yourself tasked with finding a new family dentist in the Tampa, Florida area.  With our 30+ years of private practice experience as a gentle family dentistry practice, there are a few items we think you should consider when exploring your options.

Location: Is the dentist office near you?

This seems self-explanatory, but you should always consider your routine when you visit the dentist. For a lot of our patients, the preferred location is near their home, but that isn’t always the most sensible choice. You may find that you like to visit the dentist and return to work afterward. If this sounds like you, then you may want to choose a location near work instead of home. Fortunately, Friendly Smiles Dental Care has four convenient locations throughout the Tampa Bay area. These locations are conveniently located in Odessa, Town & Country, Lutz, and Carrollwood. Take a look at our locations here.

Insurance: Does the family dentist accept your coverage?
