Consider this particular scenario: you’ve lived in the same area for a long time but last year you decided that 2016 was going to be the year that you moved to a completely different part of town into a bigger home to accommodate a growing family. Now, moving is something that can leave you wrought with many different emotions; although a house is an object, the things that occur there can be linked to many memories which can make moving away from it all the more difficult. Moving can also make things like the changing of schools, a longer commute to work and deciding to change your dentist difficult as well.
When it comes to changing your Ottawa dentist, there are a few things to consider:
Location – Is it really necessary to actually change your dental location? If you have a car or have access to public transportation and have been a patient of your particular dentist for a long time and are happy with them, do your best to stick with them.
Moving – If you have decided to actually choose to get a new dentist due to a move you may want to consider having a chat with your new neighbours and also going online to determine the best dental offices to choose from in your new area.
Whatever decision you make always do your research. Your dentist is someone who you’ll have to be vulnerable around so you’ll want to feel fully comfortable with them. When you do find someone make sure to ask all the questions that you deem necessary to feel as comfortable as possible.
