How to Select a Dentist According to the ADA
The American Dental Association (or ADA) is obviously interested in people and dentists being matched together for their mutual benefit. For our potential Sacramento patients, how can you choose a dentist? We believe that the following suggestions from the ADA make the Marconi Dental Group an excellent choice to meet your needs in Sacramento family dental care, full-mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dentistry.
The ADA Recommendations
“Ask family, friends, neighbors or co-workers for recommendations.”
We agree that this is a logical way of finding a dentist you will like. Of course, “family and friends” may not understand the technical side of dentistry, but they can certainly decide whether their experience with a dentist was painful and uncomfortable or painless and convenient. While we may not know your closest kin, we’re happy to point to reviews on sites like Yelp and to direct you towards testimonials patients have sent to our website. We want to be the finest in Sacramento dentistry and we consistently work towards that goal.
“Use ADA.org’s ADA Member Directory to search for dentists in your area.”
Our dentists are members of the ADA and you’ll find the Marconi Dental Group in the ADA directory. As the ADA states in their “Tips for Choosing a Dentist,” “all ADA member dentists voluntarily agree to abide by the high ethical standards reflected in the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct as a condition of their membership.” That statement is designed to give you comfort when you consider your choices in Sacramento dentists.
“Is the appointment schedule convenient for you?”
“They also changed their hours recently, which is great for those with difficult or busy schedules like mine.”
Our office hours include early morning, starting at 7 am, to later in the evening at 6 pm, Monday through Friday. If you have a special need or an emergency situation, feel free to call us and we will do our utmost to fit you in. As one reviewer put it: “They also changed their hours recently, which is great for those with difficult or busy schedules like mine.”
“Does the office appear to be clean, neat and orderly?”
Feel free to visit our practice and ask for a tour. You will see that all of our stations and areas are clean, convenient and designed with your service and our efficiency in mind.
“Is information provided about fees and payment plans before treatment is scheduled?”
To quote from our Office Polices page, “Before any work is done here at the Marconi Dental Group, from the most basic cleaning to more involved cosmetic services, you will be informed of all the costs.” Being upfront with our patients is an important part of treating you the way we want to be treated — with honesty and consideration. We have your best interests at heart and want to help you make informed decisions about your dental care.
“Is the office easy to get to from your home or job?”
I’ve never been a huge fan of going to the dentist, but I love coming here! It’s close by and the staff is very friendly.
Marconi Avenue is one of the major roadways in Sacramento, directly accessible via Business 80, Fair Oaks Boulevard or Watt Avenue. We like to think that this makes us “easy to get to.”
“Dental care is a very personalized service that requires a good relationship between the dentist and the patient.”
We firmly believe in this statement by the ADA and want you to feel comfortable with our dentists and staff members. Whether your needs are for individual or family care, cosmetic or restoration, we have the staff, expertise and ability to meet your requirements. With our own on-site dental lab and master technician, we also produce many of our own dental appliances to a level of quality that we truly believe is unmatched in the Sacramento area. The Marconi Dental Group proudly serves as a full-service dentistry practice and we invite you to tour our location at 4350 Marconi Avenue, Suite 100, and to meet our Sacramento dentists. Call us at (916) 589-6462 or contact us via our website for an appointment.
