Full Answer

To find dentists in your area using the MouthHealthy.org main page, enter your address in the search box on the left side of the page. Read the terms of use, check the box, and click Locate. Use the Modify Your Search link on the results page to add filtering options, such as distance or dental specialization. Most listings only contain the name, phone number and address for each dentist, but some include other information, such as education and payment options.

Yelp.com and YellowPages.com provide user reviews as well as listings of dentists. Use the reviews to help find a high-quality dentist among the listings. However, be wary that there is no filter to prevent users from posting false reviews or to prevent dentists from posting shill reviews. To find dentists on Yelp.com or YellowPages.com, type "dentist" into the search bar along with your location. Use the various sorting options to narrow your results, including rating and distance. Both websites also provide a map to explore search results.
