When you get a dental HMO and you have to choose a dentist in they network how do you go about picking the best one? I can only afford to get a dental HMO since I do not have a dentist right now choosing one in a network is not big deal other then the fact that I want a good one right from the start. Any tips?
Reply: Here is a few tips on choosing a plan provider
1) Call the dental office that is a part of the plan and confirm they are still accepting the plan and new members.
2) Ask the dental office anything that may be important to you and your dental care needs. Such as business hours, location, how long them been in business, that in general speaking term they provide the dental care services you may be wanting to have. Ask if they have their own website you can check out or if they have any patient review. Really anything that may be important to you
3) Use the internet: You may want to see if the dental office has any online reviews, but using sites like yelp, yahoo and google reviews.
