Family Dentist in Delhi, OH
Finding a new family dentist in Cincinnati or Hamilton County can be tricky, especially if you have recently moved to the area. A big city offers plenty of options when it comes to healthcare providers, but not all dentists are right for you and your household. Follow these tips on choosing a family dentist and learn how Dr. Unger can meet your needs.
What is a general dentist?
A general dentist is a dentist who has chosen not to specialize, or limit themselves to a specific area of dentistry. As a general dental office, our office can treat the whole scope of dental needs. Often needed treatment can be performed in our office, but sometimes it is necessary to refer a specific procedure to a specialist in that area, in order to serve the individual best.
Our office prides itself on being a general dentist office for the whole family, from kids, to mom and dad, all the way to grandma and grandpa!
General dentists receive many years of education and training to earn their degree. General dentists usualy attend a four-year college and earn a bachelor’s degree before moving on to dental school.
The candidate must take the Dental Admission Test for admission to dental school. After four years of dental school, the final step is to pass the NBDE, or national dental board. Once the student fulfills all these requirements, the new dentist receives a doctor of dental surgery or doctor of dental medicine degree.
You are always welcome to ask Dr. Unger and his assistants about their training, certifications, memberships, and experience.
Choosing a Dentist for Your Family
When you choose a family dentist, you are choosing a long-term dental care provider. It is similar to choosing a primary care physician. A dentist monitors your dental health and oral hygiene efforts throughout your lifetime. Consider the following when deciding which dentist is right for you and your household:
The Dentist and Staff
Look for a dentist who can adjust his or her bedside manner to suit young and old patients. Be sure that the hygienists and receptionists have the same flexibility and courtesy, especially when working with patients with special needs.
Dr. Unger and his staff are prepared to cater to everyone in your family.
Services and Availability
Ask which services the dentist offers and which are typically referred to a specialist. Find out how the dentist handles or refers emergency dental situations. Additionally, check the office hours and be sure that the schedule aligns with yours.
