Find a dentist by getting referrals from neighbors, co-workers, doctors, pharmacists and friends, suggests About.com. Use the dentistry online directory to obtain location and contact information. After receiving referrals, contact the dentist's office to see if it is accepting new clients.
When investigating a new dentist, have a list of lifestyle-related questions ready for the dentist to answer, advises About.com. Seek a dentist with emergency after-hours care and one who has an association with a dental society. Also consider the dentist's availability to his clients. Other dentists are another source in recommending a dentist open for new clients, suggests About.com.
