Wilmington's WWAY3 News: Tips on Choosing a New Dentist

What are the top things to look for in a new dentist?Wilmington dentist Dr. Defee gives his advice on what to look for in a new dentist on this edition of WWAY3 News' Dental Minute.

Introduction: "Dr. Defee and Dr. Marechal are leaders in the Port City Dental Community, they join us today on Dental Minute."

Dr. Defee: "Whether someone chooses to come see me or Dr. Marechal at the Port City Dental Center, I think it's important to keep three things in mind when you are making that choice for a dental provider - for a number of reasons because you are really looking to make a long term, personal connection with your dentist, someone that is hopefully going to be with you for a while and you want that to be a great relationship with someone you really relate to."

"The first thing that I always recommend is someone who is going to strive to make that personal connection with you, they are going to be interested in what's going in your life more than just the work you need to have done."

"And someone who's going to help you and guide you through the treatment process so that you are making the best decisions and achieving the best outcomes for yourself. We really pride ourselves on taking that extra time to get to know our patients from the minute you check-in to the point where you are in the room with myself or Dr. Marechal. We really want to know you and what's going on and how we can help you get to where you need to be with your dental health."
