There are a lot of NYC dentists but it can be hard to navigate & find the best one for you! So we put together a blog post on some things to look for when searching for that new dentist. Read on to learn more!
Trust & good intentions are key
Trust is so important when developing a relationship with your dentist. Many don’t realize this but most NYC dentists get compensated by the amount of work they diagnose. This can lead to the over-diagnosing of a patient and a lack of trust between a patient and their provider. At dntl bar, dentists do not get compensated by the number of cases they diagnose but rather, they get paid a competitive salary & are bonused based on their patient’s satisfaction (NPS). We do this because is important to us that our patients feel comfortable and confident in their relationship with their dentist. Read more about our compensation model here.
Transparency is important
Do not be left in the dark. A good NYC dentist that you can trust will be able to walk through any questions you may have about a procedure or treatment. Transparency is important. They should also follow up with you after your appointment. This way they can make sure you are doing well and your treatment is going as planned. At dntl bar, the relationship between patient, treatment plan coordinator & dentist was designed to allow for just that. If you have any questions our staff will be happy to answer.
NYC dentists & continuing education
