How to Choose the Right Dentist
- Posted on: Jun 15 2018
Having to get a new dentist for whatever reason can feel like you’re breaking up with a longtime boyfriend or girlfriend. Not only does your dentist get to know you and your family, but they get to know literally every part and angle of your mouth. If you live in the Salt Lake Valley or up near us in Park City, then you know just how many dentists we have around. And although Utah is filled with many dental experts, there’s are several things that set Dr. Paul Peterson and his staff apart from other dentists; especially in the cosmetic dentistry field. So, what are some basic things you should look for when shopping around for a dentist?
It’s About the Expertise
You wouldn’t take your car into a veterinary clinic for a tuneup and you certainly wouldn’t take your dog into an auto shop to be checked out. Similarly, if you are looking to get any cosmetic dental work done, you shouldn’t just see any type of dentist: you should see a cosmetic dentist with years of unique and specialized treatment.
It’s About the Experience
Although every certified and trained dentist has completed the allotted amount of training, it’s safe to say that there are some dentists that are more seasoned than others. And although everyone needs to start off somewhere, having an experienced dentist by your side is not only going to make you feel more confident in your results, but it will also give you a little reassurance a well.
Looking for a good cosmetic dentist in the Park City area doesn’t have to be difficult. Not only has Dr. Paul Peterson been awarded the People’s Choice Award for his full mouth reconstruction work at the International Association of Physiologic Aesthetics Conference, but he completes 200 hours a year in continuing education.
