By having a regular dentist you are able to form an established relationship for your health. Your dentist will be familiar with your oral and general health history and understand any issues you may face. Through regular examinations your dentist can identify and diagnose problems early. Your dentist may also work with or refer you to a dental specialist depending on your treatment needs.
When choosing a dentist consider what is important to you, such as:
You may want to ask family members, co-workers or friends for a recommendation or use the Find a Dentist tool to find a dentist accepting new patients. If you are moving, ask your current dentist for a referral. Even across provinces or in small communities, your dentist may be able to provide a recommendation.
Your dentist and dental staff are there to support your health. Be an active participant in your appointments so you can make informed decisions based on your dental health needs.
