    Thank you for this video! I've been looking into cosmetic dentistry in Anchorage and comparing prices but I want more to compare than just cost. This was great because it showed that it's okay for me to want a more expensive, passionate dentist compared to a cheaper, unmotivated one. I will definitely consider all these tips. Thanks again!

    As a dentist, I feel it is most helpful to focus on what "you" have to offer vs. why "other" (dentists) aren't as good or passionate about their work. I find that patients have become distrustful of health professions because each claims to be better than the next. Again just my 2 cents.

    When choosing a cosmetic dentist there are a lot more things to consider than I had mentioned in this short video. After watching the video, a few more ideas came to mind. Here are a few more things to consider when choosing a cosmetic dentist: • How passionate is the dentist about their work? Do they love their job? • How much time is the dentist going to spend with you in the smile design? • How much experience does the dentist have with a case like yours? • Are they member of any associations? Are they involved in the dental community? • Does the Dr. explain steps and appointments so you both are on the same page? • Do your expectations fall inline with the dentists expectations? • What are your choice of labs if lab work is to be done? • What is the general feeling in the office? How is the bedside manner? • Do you like their before and after photos. How are their results? • Can you talk to any of their previous clients? • Does your dentist feel your mouth is healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry? • How does the dentist and their office handle the finances? I could go on and on with qualities to look for in a dentist. I have to say that so many of the dentists that comment in the DailyBeauty blog are amongst the best in the nation. I hope this helps! Thanks for watching!
