Would you go to a young dentist?

I searched for dentists, but the chosen dentist recently had a baby. And she will not work anymore for a few months. I have such bad luck. I found another dentist, but she is very young. She worked for 6 years and I don't think she has experience. I don't know what to do. Would you go to a young dentist? Are they as good as the other ones?

6 years is not so bad. I would; all of my wisdomm teeth were extracted by younger people. These old dudes, as time passes, aren't that competent. I suggest you to go. New dentist, maybe new knowledge and things.

She didn't know anything new. She said it's too late for me and my teeth can't be saved.

Yes, I would go to a young dentist. An old dentist told me the young dentists know more on how to take good care of our teeth. Now they can extend our teeth so there would be no gaps. They can also apply splints so our teeth would not protrude. Hope you find your dentist.

My last doctor looked young enough to be my son. The nurse who gave me my injection today is younger than me and she is a lot better and more thorough in taking care of me than my regular nurse who i put at about the late 50s to 60s in age. I wish i had this younger one all the time. see this young dentist and give her a chance maybe she will know something that will help your teeth a lot

If she already worked for 6 years she should have enough experience and know about modern techniques.

I visited the young dentist. She had the same opinion as the other dentist. She said that all my teeth need root canals. And they need to be crowned. All of them. If not I will lose them. They are ruined.

@dya80dya Now this makes sense, she says that you need root canals first. May be your dentists still use the crowns instead of covering every single tooth with ceramic.

Maybe not on a newly graduate dentist but 6 years is good enough experience for me.

I would go to a young dentist due to the younger dentists perhaps knowing some of the newer and better methods.

For me, I like to read the reviews of a dentist online if it is available - and then it's a matter of trust in time. The first time I went to my current dentist was when I broke my tooth . . . she was available and local, I just wanted it fixed right away. Luckily then I found out how conservative she was - she explained how this or that was necessary - and that this or that would only be cosmetic. It took time for me to go back to her again, but now I go regularly became in time I knew I could trust her. She is a little older than me - not too young, but not too old.

Experience does matter for doctors,I believe. But that dentist might take extra care for your treatment as she herself would want to improve her skills on the job.

I will go for some experienced one. Just ask opinion to others. It will help you to decide who is the best.

Experience holds a key role, but I am okay with young. He is operating on teeth or tooth.... Not on my heart or kidney
