What to Look for in a Dentist

Published by Brian Homann DDS

With many dental practices populating the Chicagoland area, it is sometimes difficult to determine the dental practice that is right for you. Not all practices offer the same level of quality and dedication to your smile as others. As your local dental office in Elk Grove Village, we are here to alert you of some positive aspects that you should look for in your dentist.

Dedication to Your Health History

Your oral health works in conjunction with your body’s overall health, so your dentist should be taking a full medical history before they examine you. For example, if you are on a certain medication, it may impact the way in which your dentist treats your smile. Understanding underlying issues is a great way to plan the best treatment option for you.

Providing Multiple Treatment Options

Having multiple treatment options will likely help you feel more at ease about moving forward. Every patient has individual needs that should be taken into consideration when figuring out a treatment option that is best for you. Dentistry is not a one-size-fits-all approach, so your dental practice should provide you with multiple treatment options so that you can pick what is best for you.

Addressing the Root of the Problem

Your dentist should be attacking the source of the problem rather than providing you with a general answer. If you visit the dentist and you don’t fully understand what the dentist is telling you, make sure to ask more questions until you feel comfortable understanding the problem and solution.

Our dental office in Elk Grove Village is ready to help you achieve your best smile! Please contact us today to get started.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
