Readers can visit any doctors mentioned in the list without any second thoughts since they have been vetted by more than one source. Readers will only need to determine which doctor will be suited best for their dental issue based on their specialization.


How do I find which doctor will suit me best?

Reviews and feedback will be best in this case. Taking an appointment will cost money. To avoid that, going through multiple sources for review will be helpful.  

Can I discontinue consultation with a doctor if I am not happy with him/her?

You are not bound by any law that requires you to continue with the same doctor.

Is there a special dentist for kids?

They are called Pediatric dentists or Pedodontist.

Can dentists perform surgery?

Most dentists can perform minor and basic surgeries if required. For a more complicated process, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is required who can perform many kinds of surgery surrounding the face, mouth, and jaw area. 

Can dentists also perform cosmetic surgery?

Cosmetic dentistry is a part of cosmetic surgery. It is a specialized part of dentistry that requires specialization separately. 

Can I consult two dentists for the same issue?

Consulting two dentists could lead to confusion unless you want to check how well versed merely they are with the matter at hand.

Is it better to go to a private clinic or a hospital for a consultation?

This is subject to the patient’s preference. However, private clinics these days are fully equipped and provide personalized attention to the patients.

Can I use my insurance policy in dental clinics?

Most private dental clinics do accept insurance policies these days. You should check with them first beforehand.

What in case my surgery wasn’t successful?

Most hospitals, including dental clinics, sign a waiver with patients if procedures may not always be successful. There is always an element of risk where the methods may not be successful. 

Can I take my child to a regular dentist, or do I ask for a specialist?

Most regular dentists can check up on children even if they aren’t certified pediatric dentists. However, for more severe cases, a specialist would be advisable.
