Home » Dentists Share 3 Benefits of Getting a Second Opinion

Amber just wasn’t sure. Her dentist had recommended she have extensive dental work done. She trusts her dentist, but with something this involved, she knew she would feel better if she could get another dentist’s opinion. What is her next step? Who should she see? Will it “hurt” her dentist’s feelings if she gets a second opinion?

Erasing Doubts

Searching out a second opinion is a valuable step when we’re facing any big decision. Getting more than one perspective and gathering as much information as we can in order to make the right choice can really make the decision-making process less nerve-racking.

Put your mind at ease

Sometimes we just need to hear that the option presented is the best choice we can make. Getting a second opinion does not hurt your dentist’s feelings. Doctors and dentists understand that when it comes to your health or the health of your children, it is important to feel confident you are making the best choice. Because we have two dentists in our office, patients at Martin Taylor Dentistry can easily get a second or even third opinion right then and there!

Get your questions answered

We all communicate in different ways. It’s important to have all your questions answered in a way you fully understand. If you have questions you do not feel your dentist is answering in a way that makes sense to you, seeking a second opinion is an excellent option. Sometimes just having something explained in a different way can clear up your confusion.

Learn other available options

Different dentists have varying levels of skill, training, and equipment available in their office which can offer different options for a patient. For example, Drs. Martin and Taylor are licensed to administer conscious sedation, which can open up many options for patients with any type of dental phobia, but not all dentists are able to provide this service. Additionally, while some dentists feel more comfortable sticking to how they’ve always done things, Drs. Martin and Taylor enjoy keeping up with the new technologies and can offer services other general dentists may not.

Drs. Martin and Taylor are happy to provide second opinions. Patients are of course free to return to their regular dentist after the consultation. Martin Taylor Dentistry will share information with other dentists at the patient’s request.

Dr. Taylor, Dr. Martin, and their entire staff are the very best. The front desk staff, the dental assistants, and dental hygienists are excellent. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and they are the most skilled and professional group of people that I have encountered. You can be confident you will be fully informed about what is recommended for a treatment plan and what it will cost. I’ve had the gamut of dental procedures — crowns, implants, root canals, and more routine care. It’s been made as pleasant and comfortable as possible by their skill, as well as their kindness and understanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Martin and Taylor Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for most of my adult hood. I have had everything done from a filling to multiple dental implants. All of my procedures have been straightforward with zero complications and as little discomfort as possible. Even after my implants I had minimal pain! Before I saw Dr. Taylor I was terrified of dentists, but he put me at ease with his expertise. The hygienists are kind, thorough but gentle, and knowledgeable. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The office itself is modern and impeccably clean. I highly recommend Martin Tayler dentistry and won’t trust my teeth to any other dentists.
