How to Find the Best Dentist in Encino

When you’re searching for the best dentist in Encino, the list may seem overwhelming. Here are some easy and effective ways to narrow down your choices.

Does the Dentist Take Your Insurance?

Surprise - your dentist may take your insurance even if they’re not “in network”. So, if you hear great things about a dentist, ask if they accept your plan and file claims. Even if they’re not part of a negotiated contract with your specific insurance company, the price may not be all that different.

What Age Patients are Accepted?

Some family dentists see patients of all ages, including young children. Others only focus on adults. If you want to bring everyone to the same dentist (both for convenience’s sake as well as having a central dental home) then look for someone who treats multiple generations under one roof.

Asking for Recommendations

Word-of-mouth referrals are one of the best ways to find a great dentist in Encino. Asking your friends, neighbors, co-workers, or other acquaintances who they see for dental care is a great way to whittle down the list of options. If you hear the same name used repeatedly, that’s a great sign.

Scheduling a Consultation

A dental consultation is a brief, no-pressure visit where you can discuss a specific concern and get a general feel of the office environment. If the dentist seems like a good fit, their office is friendly, and you feel comfortable with what they have to offer, then you can schedule the next appointment (such as a cleaning or filling.) It’s a great
way to “interview” your new dental provider!

White Spots and Other Dental Stains

WE ALL WANT white, straight, beautiful teeth so that we can dazzle everyone with our smiles. Unfortunately, sometimes stains can get in the way of this goal, and they come in several different types.

Defeat Bad Breath with a Tongue Scraper

ONE OF THE MAIN things people overlook about a daily oral hygiene routine is cleaning their tongues. The rough surface of the tongue makes it the perfect place for all kinds of bacteria to hide and build up.

Hypodontia and Supernumerary Teeth

Not everyone gets all four wisdom teeth. Plenty of people don’t get any at all! In rare cases, a person could end up with extra teeth beyond the 32, or they could have fewer than 28!

Building a Healthy Smile

WE ALL KNOW how important daily brushing and flossing are to a growing child’s smile. But what about the vitamins and minerals that help build those healthy smiles in the first place? Let’s take a look at some of those.

What Are Dental Implants?

Tooth decay, accidents, and injuries that once would have left someone with a gap in their smile that they could never fill can now be treated so that everything works. For one, dental implants are effective ways to fill in the gaps.

Your Teeth Are Not Tools!

HUMAN TEETH ARE awesome. We wouldn’t have dedicated our professional lives to working with them if we didn’t think so. Unfortunately, a lot of people try to put their teeth to other uses they weren’t designed for, which can lead to serious problems.
