Midlothian Dentist Toan Ho, DDS
Dr. Toan Ho grew up in Chesterfield County, where he graduated from L.C. Bird High School. He then went on to study economics at the University of Virginia. After a two year stint working in finance, he returned to school in hopes of pursuing a more fulfilling and rewarding career. His interest in science, art, and serving others led him to the field of dentistry. In 2012, he began this new journey and finally earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2018. During his time there, he was an avid participant in the Mission of Mercy projects throughout Virginia and a mission service project in Jamaica, as well as other volunteering organizations. After dental school, Dr. Ho knew he wanted to remain in Chesterfield County and serve the community that provided him with so much. When Dr. Ho is not at the office, you can find him enjoying the outdoors with his dog (a sheltie named Cazzo), cooking and traveling with his girlfriend, actively playing sports, volunteering in the local community for organizations like Big Brother Big Sister, or cheering on Hoos basketball!
Choosing a Family Dentist
While you are in the process of selecting an experienced dentist for the oral health care needs of yourself and your loved ones, consideration of a few key factors can help you choose a highly qualified dental professional capable of providing the latest, most effective treatment:
- Research their background: Learning about a dentist’s education, training, and credentials can be a steadfast way to glean an idea of their level of experience. Try to find out how long they have been in practice, as well as whether they specialize in a given treatment or procedure. Generally, you can be confident that a dentist with comprehensive experience in routine, restorative, and cosmetic care is well-equipped to effectively perform all aspects of family dentistry.
- Explore online patient reviews: A pleasant and comfortable patient experience should go hand-in-hand with beautiful treatment results. Usually available on a wide range of platforms (such as Facebook and Google), online dentist reviews can be a helpful indication of the type of care you can expect to receive while speaking volumes about the overall satisfaction of previous patients.
- Learn about the technology a practice utilizes: Innovations within the field of dentistry happen constantly. Discover the equipment and technology employed by a dentist— this can offer insight into a practice’s ability to provide the most up-to-date care. From sedation dentistry techniques that can ease anxiety to CEREC® Same Day Restorations, these advances often improve a wide range of dentistry protocols and can make your treatment more relaxing, timely, and effective.
- Schedule a consultation: All in all, you should feel confident in your dentist’s abilities and comfortable under their care. A consultation can be a valuable opportunity to gain an understanding of the rapport established between you and your prospective dentist, as well as a chance to ask any questions about your treatment of interest. Ensure he or she listens to your concerns thoroughly and makes an effort to keep you well-informed.
