Talking to friends and family even if they do not wear dentures. Many people know someone who does and while it is a difficult subject to bring up, speaking to someone who has dentures and find out who did the work, are they happy and most of all do You think they look natural. A personal referral goes a long way.
Yes, the clinics do a lot of denture work but they may be short on personal service and getting dentures is something that takes time and expertise to get right.
Contact local dental offices and ask about how much denture work they do. can they give you references from patients who are pleased with the outcome of their work. Price is not the only criteria to look at.
Very true, Sandybeech. Recommendations are awesome if you can find them, and even if you don't know anyone, it's a good idea to look online. I was very comfortable with this office because we'd already used it for my mother, and also they got very good online reviews (all the ones I could find on Yelp and such). Two of my husband's sisters work there as well, so that gave me even more assurance, but I know, based on talking with them and experience, that they encourage multiple visits, do good follow-up, etc., for all patients. The main thing different for me is that I got a slight (slight) break on price and my own sweet dental assistant staying the night with me the first night.
