Ask Your Current Dentist For Recommendations

Whether you are looking at new dentists in Sydney or anywhere else in the country, the first thing to do is ask your current dentist if they have any recommendations for you. They may be able to assist you, especially if your current dentist is part of a chain of dental clinics across the country. However, if they cannot give you any advice on dentists in your new area, do not despair as there are other things you can do.

Ask Friends & Family

If you have friends and family in the new location, you are moving to, and you can ask them for recommendations and see what they have to say. You may know someone who has lived in the area previously who may be able to help you and put you onto a reputable dentist for you and your family.

Ask On Social Media

You can also use social media to ask for recommendations for a family dentist, and there are many platforms you can use to do this. You can post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and other social media platforms and see if you can get any decent recommendations. If this does not work, you can use the internet to search for one.

Use A Search Engine

If all else fails, you can also use a search engine to find the dentist in your new area and make a list of potential ones you can visit. You can use Google or any other search engine and ensure you include the location in your search, and you can then create a list of dental clinics to contact. You will want to talk to each dentist and ask them questions about the treatments they offer, especially if you or your family require specific treatments for an existing condition. You can also visit the dental clinics to talk to them directly, allowing you to inspect the clinic and ensure that it is clean and well equipped. 

Take Your Dental Records With You

When you have found a new dentist for you and your family, you will want to ensure that you also give them your dental records to see the history of you and your family. Your dentist may tell you to get your new dentist to contact them directly, or they may give you your files which you can take to your new dentist.
