I know what you mean. When I moved to a new town, I tried a large dental office right near my house. Everyone was horribly rude to me and then they said I had six teeth that needed fillings (when every yearly appointment I'd had since I was eleven gave me a clean bill of health). I wanted to go to another dentist and get a second opinion, but they wouldn't transfer any of my x-rays and my insurance only covered x-rays once a year so I had to pay out of pocket to get them redone by another dentist. Word of mouth is a great way to know who's good, but it's hard when you've only recently moved somewhere.

Finding the right dentist can be done by asking your friends and relatives. Through referrals is the best way to find the right service or product that you want. You can also try searching online of the nearby dental clinics in your area and read their reviews from previous patients.

And if you are living in Latin American region, you can check out this page to find dental clinics that you can check. Included in the page are the information about the services and costs for each dental service. I hope it helps you a little bit. Thank you.

There maybe a good reason why you say all the dentist in your country is good. I'm not saying that theres no good dentist in your country. You said you have no experience,then you say their all good. I'm confused.


I agree with you, how would you knew that all dentist are good in your country when you haven't visit each of them? Because I am sure there are some patient don't like there dentist, instead try a new one.

Finding the right dentist should be your first preference. If you can not find then I know some good dentists in Diamond Bar who can be helpful for you. You may consult by contacting them totally free of cost. If you visit a good dentist then obviously it will be good for you that`s why I am saying that choice of dentist is your and it should be after a good research.

Finding the perfect dentist for you is not an easy task. Most of us simply make do with the dentist we have, unless they make a glaring mistake. Since almost all dentists are licensed, and insured, no single dentist referral source can accurately claim their dentists are the best. Besides your experience with that dentist is the only one that matters to you. Still, it's a good idea to ask those who have experience with either the general dentist, or specialist, you are considering.


Word of mouth is a great point of reference for dental quality care, but hardly the only one, since for all the good experiences others have had with a specific dentist, there are also those who's procedures did not work out as hoped. Even if someone has had a negative experience with a dentist, it does not mean the dentist isn't qualified, or capable. People's expectations have a way of coloring their views.


Here are some basic questions you should ask of the dentist you are considering:


When are their office hours? Is their office convenient to public transportation, or do they provide parking?


How do they handle emergency situations? Some dentists are available after hours, while others use a referral service.


What types of anesthesia is the dentist certified to give?


Does the dentist strongly believe in heading off dental problems before they start?


Ask the dentist to estimate the cost of common procedures like a cleaning, filling, or dental X-ray.


Does the dentist participate in your dental insurance plan? What form of payment do they accept? Do they offer adiscount for one form of payment over another. Can paperwork be done online, or in advance?


Are they currently licensed, without Board Review, and do they have insurance?

Not having much experience.

In my country, I will see the dentist referred by my family and friends. Try some small service such as teeth wash, and then see.

Here in US I think it depends on your insurance coverage, but the choosing principles still counts.

Going to the dentist never made me nervous while I was growing up and visiting the same dentist twice a year, but after I moved away from my home town, I've found going to the dentist to be a nerve-racking experience. It's something about strangers messing around with what seems to me like an extremely sensitive part of my body. Do you guys have any advice on how to find the right dentist, to make this experience easier?
