Clarkson Dental Group is without a doubt in the yellow pages of your local telephone book. You have probably called many dentists, all with the same general idea in mind: The orthodontist can reshape my tooth while I am sedating. It doesn’t matter what other dentists say, the orthodontist says that the pain will be gone in a few weeks, and there is a chance of saving the tooth or at least repairing it. All I know is that I would rather not have any more teeth pulled out or any more cavities filled. But in order to get an appointment for a consultation with the best dentist in Chesterfield, MO, I made three phone calls.
The first one was to a non-profit group called Family Access. This organization helps families in Chesterfield with dental needs. They give a list of dentists who they recommend, but no one was able to recommend one to me. I looked over their list of dentists carefully and wrote down some names that struck me as being specialists in their field. It didn’t take long for them to send me the list.
The second call was to a local dentist association in Chesterfield. I had already gotten a referral from the Family Access list so I knew that I was looking at the same dentists on that list. I was a bit skeptical about making an appointment with anyone from that list, but I figured that it would be just as reliable as the Family Access list. Once I got the name and number of the doctor’s office, I contacted them immediately. I was happy to hear that they indeed list their qualifications on their website, so I was able to quickly find out which practitioner I wanted to see.
