How do you handle the constant switching of dentists?
Any thoughts on how to deal with continuity when switching dentists all the time? Dentist #1 says “we’ll keep an eye on #12 and #14”, but then you go to Dentist #2 and they don’t have the records (nor do I understand all the gibberish being spoken by the dentist). Do you keep your records and take them with you?
Also, what about x-rays. Some dentists want to take some for each “new patient”. Seems like having x-rays all the time can’t be good. Do you ask for copies or what? I’ve been dentist hopping for about 18 months now and am beginning to wonder how to keep my 54-year-old teeth in the best shape.
Any advice from those doing this long term?
