The Best Way to Find a Dentist Today

Are you looking for a new dentist for your family? I just went through the process of finding a dentist for myself, which is never easy because of my severe anxiety at dentist offices, and finding a pediatric dentist that was not only patient enough to deal with my children but was also trained to deal with special needs, was important. Thanks to The Smile Generation, I am able to find dentists in my area that I absolutely love! The Smile Generation is a referral service that connects you with trusted, local dentists in your community. There are currently more than 650 (and growing) Smile Generation®-trusted offices across the country.

How to find a Dentist

When we lived in Massachusetts and were surrounded by family and friends that I had known my whole life, I never realized how hard finding doctors and dentists could be. As I became a mom and Aidan was diagnosed with autism, I had friends tell me about their experiences. When it was time for my kids to see a dentist, my best friend worked for one that all my nieces and nephews went to.

Then we moved to Florida, my first big move as a mom, and I quickly realized I had taken for granted all the little things, like having a dentist you trust. We have now lived in Tampa for almost 2 years and I still feel like I am getting settled in with all the small yet important stuff; however, finding a dentist for myself and the kids is easy thanks to The Smile Generation!

What makes The Smile Generation so amazing is that their trusted offices offer a wide range of services, including orthodontics, periodontics for tackling periodontal (gum) disease, endodontics (root canals), oral surgery, teeth whitening, and more. Emergency appointments are also available, and pediatric dental offices provide excellent dentistry and orthodontics from specially trained pediatric dentists in a kid-friendly environment. I can find a doctor that can help with Aidan’s teeth grinding, find an orthodontist for Anthony because so many of his back baby teeth never fell out, and trust The Smile Generation for all of our dental needs going forward and keep everyone smiling!

Another problem that The Smile Generation solves for me is the financial aspect of getting my husband and me to the dentist. The children all have dental insurance, but unfortunately, we don’t, which has always hindered us from even getting the basic dental services. However, The Smile Generation can help you afford the treatment you need or want. My Smile Dental Plan is a discount dental plan that gives members exclusive access to discounted fees on many dental services. Plus, Smile Generation Financial also makes affordable financing options available.

I can’t say enough about this service, especially as a parent of children with special needs. Being able to get a list of local dentists that you know are trustworthy helps me check off a major item on my to-do list that I would normally put off for as long as possible, and they can help you too! Are you looking for a new dentist, orthodontist, or another dental professional? Make sure to head over to The Smile Generation and find a dentist you’ll love today!

    I say it all the time..the right dentist, especially for your kids, is so important. The wrong dentist will make their lives miserable as mine did when I was a kid.

    Thanks for sharing

    I haven’t been to the dentist in maybe 4 years? And before then, 6 years…? And guess what? Never ever had a cavity in my life, and my teeth are in perfect health, according to the dentists back then!

    Yes it important to find that one dental clinic where your children are comfortable with, and at the same time a place that offers the services you need.

    Trusted dentists are very important, as their good work has a great impact on our lives. I’ve never heard of the Smile Generation, but I may make use of this service. 🙂

    This sounds like a great app! I usually just ask around in local Facebook groups, but having a more professional search option is great for cross checking!

    Visiting a dentist is really important. We should inculcate the value of seeing dentists to the kids so they will learn of its value.

    When it comes to the dentist, I always get away with excuses. But now I am always looking for them for my kid.

    A dentist visit is very necessary, we may have fears but in the end it’s worth it.

    A great dentist is a blessing. We are fortunate that we had the same one for over 15 years

    This is wonderful! Going to the dentist is so important. I find that we are in a similar situation, where we take our kids more often than we go ourselves, due to the expense.

    I know how difficult it can be to find a good dentist. I have friends who are frightened of them. And my dentist growing up was amazing. And then when he retired I realized how difficult it can be to find a good dentist. I have a capable one now, but having a service you can trust who sends you to excellently referred dentists would be amazing. Especially as a parent when you are trying to protect your child’s teeth.

    Dental care is often overlooked. I’ve avoided the dentist for 12 years before making it a normal routine a few years back. This is awesome to hear of a place willing to help and good with kids, even those with needs.

    Thanks for the tips. Having your own family trusted dentist is important. I should find one for my family.
