Choosing A Dentist In Lake Jackson The American Dental Association offers some counsel on how to choose a dentist, and when you do, please consider Distinctive Dental Services – Dr. Scott Elrod in the Lake Jackson, Texas region. Here are some things you should think about:

Extended Hours?

Life can be busy. Fitting in a dentist appointment shouldn’t upend your schedule. Visiting a dentist with evening and weekend hours is a smart move for busy men and women. (Isn’t that all of us?)

Convenient Location?

Location is always a factor when choosing a dentist. If you live in the Lake Jackson, Texas area, there are many options. While location plays an important role in convenience, many men and women are willing to drive a little farther for a better experience.

Do You Feel Comfortable?

A chairside manner is an important factor. Your dentist should be approachable and make you feel comfortable when you are in the dentist’s chair. After all, your dentist will be working very closely with you to help you achieve and maintain oral health; you most certainly will want to have a comfortable relationship with your dentist and the staff.


Specialty is another factor. Some dentists specialize in cosmetic dentistry. Others specialize in orthodontia. Depending on your needs, you may pick a local dentist who can solve your immediate concern. Bear in mind, however, that it is good to have a general dentist who can maintain your dental history and provide ongoing general dental care.

We are accepting new patients at Distinctive Dental Services – Dr. Scott Elrod. Give us a call at 979-297-0337 to schedule a friendly consultation.
