When my dentist decided to retire, I got busy finding someone new to take care of my teeth. Fortunately, there were plenty of choices, even in my small town. Within a couple of weeks, I found a dental professional who has provided me with great care for the last six years. There's an art to choosing a new general dentist. I focused on local professionals who had established practices and solid reputations. The problem ended up not being finding a dentist, but choosing one of several excellent candidates. If you need to find a dentist, let me tell you more of how I went about the process. In no time at all, you'll have someone who can take care of you and your teeth for many years to come.
