It can be difficult to choose which dentist to visit, especially if you have moved to a new area.
You're usually more than welcome to visit a new practice before making the decision to join, giving you a chance to meet with the dental team and learn more about the way they work.
Find out about their dental emergency procedures too, and the parking arrangements at the practice if you're planning to travel there by car.
Try visiting a new practice before you register with them, to make sure you feel comfortable with them.
As practices may differ in the range of services offered, check out that they are able to provide the type of care that you think you may require. For example, if you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, enquire as to the range of such procedures available.
