How to Choose a Dental Practice Fort Mill, SC
gold hill waiting room

Choosing a dentist can have either positive or negative ramifications on your oral health and the health of your entire body. It is important to take a few things into consideration before haphazardly choosing a dentist from the phone book simply because s/he is the closest or offers the cheapest services. Below you will find tips for choosing the best dentist for you and your family.

  • Consult your insurance. While this may not sound like the first place to start when choosing a dentist, it is incredibly important that you consult your insurance to determine what dental practices are accepted within your network. It is vital that you pay attention to the underwriting in your insurance plan in order to avoid hefty dental bills for doctors and services that are not covered under your insurance plan.
  • Consider your specific dental needs. If you have pre-existing dental conditions, it is vital that you understand your insurance policies as well as dental services provided by individual dental practices. It is also imperative that you fully research a dentist’s qualifications before becoming a patient. Seeing a dentist who only specializes in general dentistry is not advisable for those who suffer from diabetes, have received major dental work in the past, or who will need extensive dental work in the future.
  • Do you have children? Family dental practices are highly recommended for multiple patients within one family. The greatest benefit of a family dentist is that s/he will evaluate all mouths of a single family and will be well-aware of any conditions that are common to those family members. This allows for early detection of dental issues so that early intervention can be taken. It is also advised that parents interview a dentist before taking their children to see him/her in order to make sure that the dentist’s personality is a good fit for their children.
  • Is the dentist convenient for you? Truth be told, convenience plays a huge role in how often you will visit the dentist. Whether you need a dental practice that is convenient to your work place, your home, or to your children’s school – this needs to be taken into consideration.
  • Ask for a recommendation. Not all dentists (or doctors) should be chosen simply because “everyone else sees him/her,” but dentists that come highly recommended due to their quality of service and care provide a good place to check out!

Based on 97 reviews


"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
