One of the first things I did when I had to find a new dentist was to make sure that the dental office accepted Bulk billing. Not every dental provider does, so I was happy to see that a few did in the new area that I had just moved to. I had my choice between three different dentists, so I went online to see if I could get a better feel for all of them. I was impressed with Fairy Meadow Dental because they had the best website.
I could tell that a lot of thought had gone into it. Instead of just trying to sell themselves to potential customers, they are trying to educate their patients. I actually learned a lot from their website, and I called to make an appointment. I just needed a cleaning and exam, and I was able to get in that same week. I was really surprised when the hygienist told me that I was not getting my back teeth clean enough because I brush my teeth at least twice a day. She explained that I was probably giving more attention to my front teeth because they looked a lot better.
When the dentist gave my teeth an examination, he agreed with the hygienist. He told me that I even had a cavity in the back on the upper part, which shocked me even more. I have had cavities before, but this was the first one I had in nearly a decade. He was able to fix it right then for me, and I got some great tips on how to take better care of my back teeth. I thought that my education was just on the website, but it turns out I learned a lot more sitting right there in the seat having my teeth cleaned and examined.
