My Dentist Is Retiring! What Do I Do?

Posted on 2/15/2024 by Weo Admin
Most people look forward to their retirement so that they can enjoy the fruits of their labor, such as traveling or discovering new hobbies. But many people do not react well when their long-time doctor or dentist retires. If you received information that your dentist is retiring, there are some steps you can take to make sure you find a dentist that is perfect for you.

Check With Your Current Dentist

You may want to begin your search by checking with your current dentist, especially if you have a great relationship with them. Many retiring dentists sell their practice to a colleague, so the new dentist has an existing patient roster. Your dentist may also choose to welcome a partner into the practice if they do not have one already. This would allow you to get to know a new dentist or dentist while your current dentist is still in practice.

However, if your dentist plans to close the practice completely, you can ask them for a recommendation for a new dentist in the area. If you trust your current dentist, and they can recommend someone for you, you will be in great shape to move practices.

Time To Talk To Your Circle

Anyone who has lived in the same town for a while has a close circle of friends, family, coworkers, and acquaintances they can turn to for reviews and information on a variety of subjects. If your dentist is retiring, you should begin to check in with your circle of people about which dental practices they use and how they feel about their dentists.

What About Review Sites?

You do not want to look only at the good reviews, as you should want to look at all of the different reviews, both good and bad. You might notice that many of the positive reviews say similar things about a dentist, such as that they listen to patient concerns or are excellent with children. Patient reviews are a great way to narrow the field of prospective dentists down. If you need help finding a great dentist, give our office a call today.
