I’m trying to choose an Elgin dentist for my entire family. I do have insurance, and it’s one of the better plans available, so my list of options is fairly extensive. If at all possible, I’d like to choose someone who can treat us all, so I don’t have to worry about driving everyone to different places. My youngest is five and my oldest is 15, so we’re also hoping to find someone who is good with kids and can maybe do some orthodontics. My husband and I don’t have a whole lot of needs right now, beyond general cleanings and checkups, but it would be nice to find someone who can do cosmetic work down the road if we want. Is this too tall of an order or can I find a single Elgin dentist who does it all (and does it well!)?
Yes, a single office can provide all those services. What you’re looking for is a comprehensive family dental office. Use the checklist below as a guide to help you wade through your choices. Gather info from the doctor’s website and call them to verify any info that isn’t listed there. If you check them all off, it’s likely you’ve found a winner.
Many offices will allow you to go in for a tour if you or one of your family members is a bit skittish, but a lot of the information you’ll need in order to make an informed decision about any given practice is available online.
