Looking at the bigger picture when selecting a dentist in Aberdeenshire

Location, location, location

Having a dental practice situated 5 minutes down the road from home or work can be highly beneficial and play a huge part when choosing a dental practice for yourself. Travelling for hours for your regular oral check-up can become something of a hindrance when pushed for time. This along with the potential parking implications, roadside parking or a car park for the practice can all impact your choice of surgery.

But, although these things all play a part in your decision, what else should be considered?
