Checking with those you trust is also a great way to find a dentist if you have recently move to a new location. 

Have a Consultation

Remember, it is also important to ask the dentist what certifications and affiliations they have with professional organizations such as the American Dental Association (ADA) or Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). Other questions you may want to bring up during the consultation include what hours are available for appointments each week, how long it will take to get new patients onto the schedule and what types of procedures are completed in the office or referred out of the office to another professional.
