Think about your friends, family, and co-workers. Out of all the people close to you, who has the best smiles? The next time you are with them, ask them about what dentist they go to.

These cards make it easy for our patients to share their experiences with us to all of their loved ones. Another way you can get referrals is by professionals. Ask your doctor or local pharmacist what dentist they would recommend. All doctors work together, so they should have some recommendations within their network for you. These professionals can be a good source for referrals.
