Finding a dentist can be tough! To be fair, when it comes to healthcare, finding someone you trust can be hard, which makes it even more difficult when it comes to someone working on you and your family’s teeth. The American Dental Association (ADA) offers some great suggestions when it comes to finding a dentist that works for you and your family.
Ask yourself the following questions like:
- Is the dental office easy to get to from your home or job?
- Are the office hours convenient?
- Are there benefits or insurance options?
- How does the dentist communicate with patients?
- Is the dentist a member of the ADA?
These above questions can help give you some insight on what may be convenient for you and your lifestyle when choosing a dental home. Specifically, how the doctor treats his or her staff and patients plays a key part when deciding what dentist may be right for you. By finding a dentist who is a member of the ADA, they are held to a standard of professional conduct that must be upheld on a day-to-day basis.
At Carlyle Dental, our wonderful family dentists, both Dr. Carlyle (owner and operator) and associate dentist, Dr. Olsen are both board certified, licensed in North Carolina and members of the ADA. Dr. Carlyle has been serving dental patients for over 18 years and takes pride in giving patients a comforting experience in the dental chair. He is an active member in the community and really takes the time to get to know his patients on a personal level to help build trust with each one that walks through the door.
Dr. Olsen, who is newer to the practice, received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree from Oregon Health and Sciences University where he received a distinction in the area of Fixed Prosthodontics. He has since relocated to Eastern, NC and has provided exceptional care to the many patients of Carlyle Dental. He believes that exceptional care starts with consideration of the patient’s needs and desires, not “just teeth.”
