It’s about that time of year again. College students and recent college grads are on the move. Whether you’ve just moved for a new job or better opportunity, there are lots of things that you need to consider. Preparing your life away from home can be daunting, but we’re here to remind you that your healthcare should be one of the main priorities. One task that you cannot let fall between the cracks is finding a great dentist that has the experience, services, and location that you need. This is key before you end up in a dental emergency frantically googling “dentist near me” at the very last moment. Before choosing a dental professional, the office of Mark Givan wants you to consider these quick questions.
Is my dentist really experienced?
We first recommend reviewing your potential dentist’s website. There should be interesting information about your dentist including their educational background and practice timeline within the field. Dr. Givan has been providing exceptional dental care in Fort Worth since 1978! Directly after graduating from Baylor College of Dentistry, he opened his practice the same year. To keep up with the ever-evolving dentistry world, Dr. Givan also completes 20 to 40 hours of continued education each year! Ultimately, you need a dentist like Dr. Givan that cares about his patients enough to continue educating himself to provide the best services possible.
What kind of memberships, affiliations, or awards does my dentist hold?
One of the best memberships to look for is a dentist that is associated with the American Dental Association (ADA). It is also wise to look at your state board for dental health to see if your dentist meets your state standards. In our office, Dr. Givan holds memberships with not only the ADA, but the Texas Dental Association and Fort Worth District Dental Society. One award that Dr. Givan is particularly proud of is his recognition as Top Dentist in Fort Worth Magazine—not only once, but twice (once in 2004 and then again from 2010-2016)!
What services does my dentist offer?
A great comprehensive dentist is truly invested in providing you the best care when they offer a variety of services that all kinds of patients need. Your dentist should be concerned for your overall health, not just your oral health and only recommend treatments and services that you need to maintain good health. Our office offers services in preventive dentistry for every member of your family—despite how young or old—we show that we are working with you to prevent health problems in the future. We also offer restorative and cosmetic services to patient’s that wish to fix their smiles. Everyone can receive the dental care they deserve.
Where is my dentist located?
If you need emergency dental care, it is important to have a dentist near you. Also, consider the office hours and if your day to day schedule meshes well with theirs. Our office is open as early as 7 am on Wednesdays and Thursdays so that our patients can schedule appointments early before work. We are conveniently located near Hullen Mall and Overton Ridge Boulevard. Call today to schedule your first appointment with your new dentist!
