How to Choose a Dentist

Schedule An Appointment

My first experience here was this morning. I was a little nervous because I haven’t been to the dentist in some time. They made me feel relaxed and not judged. The last thing me as a patient, that has not been seen in a while wants to hear is negative feedback. I received positive vibes and help from everyone there….. Nothing negative. The doctors assistant that helped me was amazing!!! Two thumbs up to her. Her customer service is wonderful. Thank you East Pershing Dental for making what seemed like my first dentist appointment a very good one.



Staff are always friendly and attentive to their clients. They do everything possible to make you comfortable during any procedure.



All the staff is wonderful and caring! Sandy was great! My teeth are sparkling, and she was in a great mood at 7am. She has some kind of superpowers! The whole office makes it convenient for me, by offering appointments outside of business hours. Great dentists that take time to explaining thing to me. The office staff always greets me as soon as I walk in the door, and they all remember my name. Thanks for being so awesome!

How to Find a Great Dentist in Cheyenne

Ask for Recommendations

Who do you trust more than your own family members? Or your coworkers or neighbors? Finding a dentist could be as easy as asking someone for a recommendation. And if you’re new the area, feel free to read through the reviews that past patients have left us.

Where Are They Located? What Are Their Hours?

When you have a few recommendations, it’s time to start looking at the details. The first thing that will help you decide is looking at where they are located and the hours they are open. Would you rather the office be closer to your home or office? What is the traffic like in that area? And choose a place that has accommodating hours so you don’t have to rearrange your schedule.

What Services Do They Offer?

While you may only be looking for a teeth cleaning right now, you could need other services in the future. Look for services like crowns, fillings, whitening, emergency services, and if you have children, look for an office that caters to younger patients.

Go In and Meet Them

When you have some basic information, the next step is to actually go in and meet the staff and doctors. If you’re not ready to schedule an appointment yet, call the office to see if they can give you a tour of the facility. This will give you an opportunity to meet and talk to the doctors and front office staff face-to-face. If they aren’t friendly and willing to help, you may want to move on. Meet the dentists at East Pershing Dental and learn about their history.


If you want to know for certain that a potential dentist has the education, training, and skills necessary to have a practice, ask them for their qualifications, where they went to school, and how long they have been in the industry. Don’t worry about being nosy or coming off as picky, this is your teeth and your overall health we’re talking about.


We know that one of the biggest reasons people don’t come to the dentist is because it can be uncomfortable. At East Pershing Dental, we do our best to ensure that each patient is as comfortable as possible. To do this, we have some of the best technology, including soft tissue laser, intraoral camera, and a digital X-ray.

Visiting a dentist regularly can have significant benefits on your health and the integrity of your teeth. If it’s been longer than six months since your last dental cleaning, we would love to be your local Cheyenne dentist of choice. If you want to learn more about us, feel free to give us a call!
