Can just any dentist sign up to become a member of 1-800-DENTIST?
Dentists who apply for membership with 1-800-DENTIST must pass an extensive screening and evaluation process. This includes obtaining proof of appropriate levels of malpractice insurance coverage and contacting the State Board of Dental Examiners or Board of Dentistry to ensure licenses are in good standing. Most importantly, we monitor patient feedback and conduct periodic reviews to verify that these standards are continuing to be met. This process is intended to uphold 1-800-DENTISTs commitment to the public and to ensure that all members of the program are in good company.
Is everyone who contacts 1-800-DENTIST matched with a dentist?
Consumers who call 1-800-DENTIST or visit 1-800-DENTIST are matched based on location, dental needs and method of payment. Each member dentist provides 1-800-DENTIST with a profile that provides extensive details about their practice such as office hours, location and available procedures. To ensure a suitable dentist-to-patient match, the 1-800-DENTIST operators use these profiles to select dentists who meet the individual needs and other criteria communicated by the caller. However, because not every dentist is a 1-800-DENTIST member, we do not always have a dentist who meets the specific needs of every caller.
