Factors To Consider When Choosing a Dentist

Fortunately, you can choose the right dentist with a careful consideration of a handful of factors. We urge you when picking your new dentist to consider:

  • Experience: There's really no substitute for actual, hands-on dental experience. Education and training are vital, but being able to draw from years of experience working with patients and solving their problems is invaluable. Dr. Phelps has been practicing in the Indianapolis area for decades. He knows how to handle a range of scenarios and can point to numerous satisfied patients and their reviews
  • Services: Make sure your dentist is capable of providing you with the care you need. If you're suffering from TMJ, talk to the dentist about his or her experience treating the condition. If you're looking for a specific cosmetic procedure, make sure your dentist is capable of more than just the standard check-ups and cleanings
  • Comfort level: Finally, it's vital that you feel comfortable and relaxed in the dentist's office, especially if you have a history of dental anxiety. Your experience with the dentist's office will be rather unpleasant if you don't feel comfortable with the environment. Get to know the office and the people who work there before making any decisions. Dr. Phelps offers safe and comfortable sedation dentistry options for patients who are especially nervous or those who may require a more lengthy treatment session.

We recognize the importance of this decision, and we're confident that a careful consideration of the factors listed above will lead you to Dr. Phelps. We're happy to answer any questions you might have about our office and our services. We'll address any concerns in a respectful, reciprocal conversation.

Personalized Care

Obviously, everyone has broadly similar traits to their teeth, gums and jaws. But Dr. Phelps' decades of experience has taught him that each patient must be treated as a unique individual, with an understanding of their goals, priorities and concerns. When you come to us to discuss a procedure, we will listen without any pre-conceptions. Our conversation will be driven by what you wish to achieve and the nature of your concerns.

The process of determining the procedure that's right for you begins with your initial examination. Using a combination of advanced technology and hands-on evaluation, we will closely examine your teeth, gums and jaws to determine if your problem is structural in nature. Finding the right procedure requires gathering the right information - Dr. Phelps can best make a proper diagnosis and treatment recommendation when he knows all there is to know about the state of your oral health. We'll take clear images of your teeth, gums and jaw, then use those pictures to inform our recommendations.

Our approach is defined by a simple insight: every patient is unique.

All of the procedures we offer are safe, commonly performed and quite effective. But it's crucial to ensure that you only undergo a procedure when it's appropriate. The best way to learn if a procedure is appropriate for your needs is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Phelps.
