Trust is the foundation of all good relationships, and choosing a dentist is no different. In most aspects of the health and medical field, you are putting your trust into the hands of a professional to give you the best possible treatment. A patient needs to trust that their dentist will perform each and every procedure professionally, effectively, and with as little pain and discomfort as possible. In addition to finding a trustworthy dentist, you should search for one who is passionate about their profession and excited about the future of dental medicine. A great dentist enjoys the work that they do every day and is continuously learning about advances in their field as well as studying the connection of the mouth and its operations to the rest of the body.

These traits go beyond the dentist’s office as well. Involvement within the dental education community is key for a great dentist. Training and educating other professionals shows that the dentist wants everyone to receive the best treatment even if it’s not one of his or her patients. Strong leadership, such as a dentist who can take charge of a team of hygienists, technicians, and assistants, in addition to other employees while also making high-level business decisions for the practice is essential. Not only must they be natural leaders but they should also be easy to talk to.  A successful and great dentist should try to learn about their patients on a more personal level so they feel more comfortable.  This can help patients feel more at ease and turn a stressful situation for some into a more pleasant experience.
