You have a lot of options for your dental care, and choice is a good thing. When looking for a Santa Monica general dentist for yourself and your family, it’s important to find someone with whom you are comfortable.

Dr. Brightleaf understands that this is an important decision. Your general dentist is the person who is going to be caring for the dental needs of you and your family.

There are a few factors to keep in mind when choosing a general dentist:

  • Experience: Experience means your general dentist has seen the relevant procedures and knows how to react if something goes wrong. Dr. Brightleaf has been practicing general dentistry for decades.
  • Training: You want a dentist who has put in the extra effort required to become a true expert. Dr. Brightleaf has trained at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute, completing the rigorous core curriculum, and has earned the designation Master of General Dentistry from the Academy of General Dentistry, a distinction requiring 1100 hours of practice in the field.
  • Meets Your Needs: Even the most experienced general dentist might not offer the services and procedures you need. If you’re searching for a general dentist for your whole family, make sure the dentist is experienced with family dentistry, especially in the difficult field of children’s dentistry. And if you think you might need cosmetic dentistry procedures, make sure your dentist offers those.

Ultimately your decision will come down to your unique circumstances. Make sure you are comfortable with your general dentist and do your research before making any decisions.
