Finding a dentist that will care for your entire family is a big decision. When making such a decision, many factors should be considered. You will want to find a dentist you can trust who will provide a range of services your family needs. More than the services offered, you will want to make sure the dentist you choose offers excellent care for every member of your family. Your children’s developing oral health, especially if they still have developing teeth, is so important. Families in the North York, Ontario area trust their dental health to Dr. Reza N.

Let us explore some factors you should consider when making this decision for your family.
In Canada, dentists are required to attend dental school before becoming accredited. Additional education should also be pursued due to the ever-continuing evolution of dental procedures and technology. A dentist should, in fact, never stop learning. Many dentists will post their credentials on their website, but you can also ask them. Here are some questions you should ask any dentist you are considering for your family:
Making sure the dentist you are considering offers any service your family may need is critical. Part of having a family dentist is to have a one-stop shop where your family can receive the treatments they need without the added inconvenience of finding multiple practices. Many dentists will list their offered services online, but you can ask them for a list of what is provided. A family dentist should offer preventative, restorative, and cosmetic services.
This one is simple. Does the dentist take your insurance? If the dentist you are considering is not within your network, you may want to reconsider. Dental treatments can prove costly when not covered by insurance. You do not wish to find yourself in a situation where you have to turn down treatment because you cannot afford it.
