One day you wake up to find yourself in a new town, with a new job, new dental insurance, and a toothache. How do you find a dentist?
Even if you know someone in the area who can recommend a good, friendly, gentle dentist, he or she may not service teeth that are covered by your dental health plan. Many plans, such as PPO insurance policies or HMOs, may provide a list of practitioners who accept your policy. These lists are rarely comprehensive, so when trying to find a dentist, the only way to know for sure if one will accept your dental health plan is to ask.
