Finding a Family Dentist the Whole Family Will Love

Share This Post

As a family, as much as you love each other, you don’t always agree on everything. Maybe you regularly find yourselves in good-natured debates about whether to have burgers or tacos for dinner. Or if you should watch your three-year-old’s favorite movie for the hundredth time this week. Disagreements are just a natural part of family life.

But finding a great family dentist is something the whole family can agree on. After all, no one wants a grouchy, outdated dentist that treats you more like another job to get done than a human sitting in their chairs.

Here’s how to find a dentist the whole family will love.


This day and age, people are busy. Between work life, school, appointments, children’s extracurricular activities, and family events there’s a lot to balance. Which is why when someone takes a couple of minutes out of their day to sit down and leave a review, it’s a big deal. They were left with an impression so strong they wanted to share it with others.

It means so much to us at Bela Family Dentistry of Newberry that our patients take time out of their hectic schedules to leave kind, thoughtful reviews. We are very grateful to have been given a 5-star rating from 37 Google reviews. 


Cindy H. says, “Everyone at Bella of Newberry was warm, friendly and made me feel comfortable. The cleaning was thorough and pain free. I felt the staff was truly interested in making sure I understood the issues with my teeth and listened attentively to my questions and concerns. It was a great experience.”


In South Carolina, dentists need to complete at least 14 hours of continuing education credits each year. Dental hygienists need to complete at least seven hours each year and dental technicians a minimum of four hours.

Continuing education isn’t just crucial for professionals to maintain their licensure, however. It’s also important they do so to provide the best possible service and experience to their patients. Staying up to date is imperative to providing safe, efficient dental services with minimum patient discomfort year after year.


When choosing a new dentist, it’s important to check that they accept many insurance plans and offer a variety of financing options. Your financial needs may evolve over the years—and your dentist should be flexible in meeting your changing needs.

Bela Family Dentistry of Newberry accepts all insurance plans. As work life is evolving and job-hopping is on the rise, you just might find the insurance company you are with now may not be the one you are with in five years. Finding a dentist you like that accepts many dental plans ensures you can continue to visit them for years to come—no matter the company covering your dental costs.

For payment options, we accept cash, check, most major credit cards, and CareCredit. CareCredit helps you pay for treatments and procedures that your insurance doesn’t cover. They even offer no-interest financing options for three to 12 months to qualifying applicants.


And perhaps most importantly, when selecting a dentist, look for one who shows compassion for each and every one of their patients. You want each member of your family to feel comfortable with your dentist and be treated with the same gentle caring hand.
