Family Dentist in Olathe Now Accepting New Patients

Finding a family dentist can be challenging if you don’t have an established dental care relationship. If you want to have the same provider care for your entire family, consider Olathe Dental Care Center. We take care of patients of all ages, from babies with their first tooth to elders who might need dentures. Our group of family dentists, dental assistants and hygienists provide the best in modern dental care, while the folks in our office help with appointments, insurance, and billing inquiries. 
What should you look for when choosing a new family dentist? The American Dental Association offers some guidelines to help you in your search. First, look at the basics, such as location, office hours, and whether or not the practice you are considering is in-network for your dental insurance. If you do not have insurance, find out what payment plans the practice offers, if any. At the Olathe Dental Care Center, we accept most dental insurance and offer a variety of payment plans for those without insurance.

Ask around! Now that you’re looking for a dental provider, you may feel as though you are being bombarded with choices. Like many things we don’t notice until we are thinking of them, ads for dental services are everywhere. How can you know whether a dentist has what you are looking for? Friends, family and coworkers are a great place to start. If you hear someone talking about how much they love their dentist, don’t be afraid to ask for information. The ADA also offers a Find-a-Dentist tool that can aid in your search.
Once you have found a candidate, it’s time for the meet and greet. Make an appointment for a consultation. This will allow you to meet the provider and their staff, take a look at the facilities and ask any questions  you may have. Here are a few questions you may want to ask:

  • Are all of your dentists members of the American Dental Association?
  • Does the dentist provide instruction on maintaining dental health?
  • What is the policy on after-hours emergencies? 
  • Does the staff understand my dental plan? 
  • If I don’t have insurance, what payment options are available? 
  • What techniques do you use to help kids feel comfortable seeing the dentist?
