If you’ve just moved to Fairfax, VA, and are looking for a dentist, or you’re just ready for a change in provider, we’re here to offer you some tips for what to look for in a new dentist.
Your oral health is connected to your overall health, so it’s important to look after your teeth and find a trusted dentist to help you achieve your oral health goals. When researching a new dentist in Fairfax, these are some things to consider:
1) What credentials and experience does the team have?
When looking for a new dentist, you should review their education and previous experience, as well as look at their focus and priorities as a dentist. The doctors and hygienists at Janet K. Song, DDS Family Dental Care are graduates of top dental schools and also continue to educate ourselves on the latest dental technology and techniques to ensure we are at the forefront of dentistry and patient care. Our professional and friendly front office team has been with us for years and provides a warm welcome to our patients and is well informed to provide you the answers to all your questions.
2) What are their patient reviews like?
Patient reviews are the best way to get an insight into the real patient experience. You may also find answers to some questions that the dentist doesn’t have on their website, such as average wait times or treatment costs. We are proud of our 5-star reputation and Dr. Song was honored to be recognized as a “Top Medical Professional” by Modern Luxury DC Magazine last year.
3) What are their scheduling options?
Whether you love picking up the phone or booking on the go using your smartphone, make sure your provider communicates in a style you prefer. It’s also important that your provider has convenient office hours for your schedule. At Janet K. Song, DDS, we offer online bookings, and appointment requests via our online form, email, or a call with one of our friendly staff members. We also provide appointments every 2nd and the 4th Saturday between 9 am-1 pm so you don’t always need to take time off work.
The entire team at Janet K. Song, DDS is ready to welcome you and we are happy to answer any question you have about joining us as a new patient. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our dental practice in Fairfax soon!
