Have you moved to the area and you’re now looking for a new dentist in Portales or any nearby areas across New Mexico, West Texas, Colorado, and Oklahoma? Scrolling through page after page, calling office after office can be frustrating. Some people may get so frustrated that they put off choosing a new dentist until they have a dental emergency. We’ve put some quick tips together to help you find the right dentist.

Three Tips for Choosing a Portales Dentist

We’ll briefly cover why it’s essential to choose a dentist who offers the services you need, has high reviews from previous patients, and has an option for sedation dentistry.

  • Make sure your new dentist offers the services you need. Not all dentists are created equal. Some offices may offer general dentistry without the option for dental implants, periodontal treatment (gums), cosmetic dentistry, or orthodontics. If this is the case, you may once again end up searching the internet for hours when you decide it’s time to invest in your dream smile.
  • Before you schedule an appointment with your new dentist in Portales, read their reviews. Reading over previous patient testimonials will help you get an idea of how they treat their patients. You want to make sure that the doctor you’re seeing is flexible, works with your budget, accepts emergency patients, and has an excellent chairside manner. Going to see the dentist can be nerve-wracking, but it can make the experience much more enjoyable if you like your dentist.
  • Assure the dentist you choose offers sedation dentistry or nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Did you know Dr. Thompson and his team are the #1 New Mexico Sedation office ??? Very few DDSs will offer this service, but at our office, we take your fears and anxiety seriously. According to Everyday Health, anxiety is one of the top five reasons many people avoid the dentist. With sedation dentistry, we can get you your best smile yet and make it as anxiety-free as possible.
