How to find a good dentist in Johannesburg

Dentists in Gauteng

Finding one of the good Johannesburg dentists to make an appointment with may seem easy – you flip through the yellow pages or do a quick internet search and hope that you pick somebody credible, qualified and able to complete the dental procedures you need.

This may seem like a good plan, but you could be setting yourself up for disaster. The yellow pages may have a complete list of dental practitioners in Gauteng, but they don’t necessarily list credentials, give comparisons or list any of the dental expertise the doctor may have.

How to find a good dentist in Johannesburg

These are some of the things to look for when finding a dentist in Gauteng:

  • Location: Gauteng is a big place and you don’t want to spend hours in traffic to get to your your dental appointment on time. If you live in Sandton, get a list of Sandton dentists to make sure the offices are close to you, your child’s school or your office.
  • Preventative approach: A good dentist will have a preventative approach to your dental care and should be able to advise you on the best actions to take now to avoid future surgeries and costs.
  • Dentist for children: Paediatric dentists specialise in treating children’s dental problems, which can be very different to adult dental problems. These dentists usually have some sort of formal training in paediatric dentistry, have a child-friendly office atmosphere and work with you from toddler fluoride treatments to cavities and plan for orthodontic treatment.
  • Affordability: Just because you are looking for quality dental care, doesn’t mean you can pay an arm and a leg. Request a quote and find out if the dentist offers a payment plan.
  • Painless dentistry: If you have a fear of dentistry due to painful past procedures, find out what types of sedation and numbing techniques the dentist uses to ensure pain free dental care.
