Most people will check out reviews and feedback on a resort or hotel before spending their hard earned cash and booking a holiday, after all, they want to ensure they get the very best. So why is it so many don't follow the same procedure when spending their money on new dentures?
Dentures aren't cheap but when made and fitted correctly can have such a positive effect on an individual they are worth every penny.
Over the years I have seen many people who have had problems with their dentures and the people who fitted them, which is why I think it's important to know what to look for when you need new dentures or are getting them for the very first time.
Hopefully if you do your homework you won't experience the problems this lady did when she got dentures for the very first time:â€¢ Always ensure you visit a Clinical Dental Technician, known as a CDT. They are trained and fully qualified to offer a range of denture services direct to patients. They must be registered with the General Dental Council (GDC) to be able to work in the UK. Patients can be reassured by this that they are meeting the standards that the GDC set.
â€¢ Arrange a consultation so you can discuss in detail what you are looking for and the options that are available to you. You should discuss any concerns or worries you may have. You can use their responses to gauge your trustworthiness of the clinical dental technician.
â€¢ Ask the CDT for copies of customer testimonials, take a look at photos of dentures they have made.
â€¢ Ask your dentist if they can recommend anyone
â€¢ Word of mouth is always good. If you know someone that wears dentures ask them who they use and what they think of them
So when looking for dentures, don't be fooled by glossy adverts with nice pictures, choose a professional CDT with lots of experience and excellent customer feedback.
