My wife and I are searching for a new dentist (general provider), one that can do checkups, cleanings, fillings, etc. I have BCBS of DE so we can go anywhere, but I don't want to find the most expensive dentist in the County either.
My wife has a fear and mistrust (justifiably) of doctors of any kind (due to past experiences) so a dentist who understands how to explain things, and has a gentle hand and bedside manner is important. Keeping a patient relaxed (or even asleep LOL) is a primary necessity.
I've found my fair share of dentists and their staff who are rude and unprofessional. I won't get into a list of issues or specifics, but let's just say that I will NOT tolerate certain behavior or comments from a dentist or their staff. I expect nothing less than professionalism and ethical practice from a dentist.
Anyway, I'd like to ask everyone here WHO you use as a dentist and WHY you like him/her and any other pertinent info you can offer.
