Have no idea where you live. One place never to look for a new dentist is on an insurance list. These PPO rosters read like a rogue's gallery of dentists NOT to patronize. Seek recommendations from friends and family. ALWAYS go to a dentist who owns his own practice- NEVER to a corporate clinic where the dentist is an employee- that includes chains like Aspen, Coast, Great Expressions, Dental One, Western, and countless other gyp joints. Remember that online reviews can be doctored. They are not always reliable. When you get a few possibilities, call to ask these questions"

1. Do you still do amalgams? You want a "yes" answer. Amalgam is a long-lasting and economical filling for back teeth.
2. Do you still do gold inlays and inlays? You want a 'yes" answer. It shows the dentist is quality oriented.

In general, ex-military dentists are much more likely to be competent doing specialty procedures and thus save you money and time.

Good luck!
