Even though we k now that one dental clinic cannot be very different from the other, it gives a certain kind of security and confidence to know that your dental clinic is one of the better ones. Of course, a clinic’s credibility is not measured through its promotions and commercials alone. There are several factors to consider before you can be sure that the one you are patronizing is worth sticking with in the future years to come.
Does it have able dentists?
The most important consideration of course is the lifeblood of your dental clinic—its dentists. Happy and friendly dentists just won’t do the trick. They need the necessary skill and, if possible, enough experience to give their clinic a good reputation. It is not enough to have popularity among the customers. Proficiency and competence are the additional requirements to the dentists’ skill and experience. Ensure that the dental clinic you are frequenting have these kinds of dentists and you are sure to be in good hands.
Does it have better facilities?
Good dentists cannot perform in their maximum potential without using the necessary facilities. Your dental clinic does not really need the most state of the art facilities. It just needs to have updated dental equipment to ensure oral health—not antique-like equipment that look like they were bought from 20 years ago. I am not saying that your clinic’s dental facilities should be superb. I am only saying that they should be better than the mediocre. We always need progress in order for us to also get ahead in life. If we depend on an outdated dental clinic, we are not helping ourselves much.
Does it take care of its customers?
Customer service should be one of the greatest considerations in choosing any brand or service. I will be surprised if your clinic treats you and its other customers very poorly, and you still choose to stay. That just stupid if you ask me. However, even though your current clinic is giving you a pretty decent customer service, it still does not hurt to look around and inquire about other dental clinic’s customer perks and freebies. Yes, loyalty is an important thing. That is why you have to be clever and weigh all the pros and cons of the clinics all around you before making a decision of staying permanently in one.
Does it give back to the community?
Now, this one is not really that important. However, I find it really fulfilling if the service I am patronizing is giving back to the community. If the dentists in your dental clinic are doing a regular community dental checkup or seminars, then I most admiringly raise my cap to them. Taking care of the community’s dental health and hygiene (even if they might not get any profit from it) is one of the noblest and selfless things a business can do. If the dental clinic you are patronizing is doing that selfless act, I believe it can take care of you just fine.
