More than anything else, Dr. David Moore judges his success as a Charlotte pediatric dentist by the smiles of his patients and the words of his patients’ parents. He also knows that he is not the only one who uses those as measurements of quality. The community of prospective families, those who are not yet part of the Charlotte Pediatric Dentistry family, carefully research and interview to find the right fit for their children’s oral health.
Some of the places that parents will go online to look for the right fit in a pediatric dentist include social media profiles, websites, trusted community sources, and reviews from other parents.
Looking at Social Media to Find a Dental Home
Everyone (and every business) seems to have an active profile on at least one of the major social media platforms. The ability to see “behind the curtain” and to connect with the people behind a brand has proven to be a strong lure for prospective clients and customers. In the field of pediatric dentistry, it has other benefits, such as allowing parents to share pictures of their children at the dentist’s office. Parents can also see what type of information and conversation is shared on the page, read feedback from other parents, and gain valuable tips and information.
Researching Pediatric Dentists On Websites
Looking through the websites of a prospective pediatric dentist will offer several points of value for a parent. Ideally, parents will be able to peruse frequently asked questions, blog posts to educate and inform, awards bestowed upon the office, locations of the practice, introductions to key staff members, and important information to know before visiting.
Reviewing Trusted Community Sources
Awards or special accolades from community publications are another way for parents to judge the credibility of a pediatric dentist. Dr. David Moore, for example, was named a Mom-Approved Charlotte Pediatric Dentist by Charlotte Parent magazine.
Reading Reviews From Parents
Perhaps the most important thing for a prospective family to consider when looking for a pediatric dentist are the words of other parents. Looking at reviews on the practice’s website is a good place to start. Pay attention to the details shared and the tone. From there, it would be wise to look through their social media reviews (if that hasn’t already been done).
It’s hard to know who will be a good fit for your family’s (and your child’s) situation. And, there may be various other factors that could impact your decision. However, following these four suggestions will help get you on the right path to finding a pediatric dentist you can trust.
