Need a new dentist-only been in this area for over a year and the dentists close to me don't accept my plan.
Looking for a dentist in the northern Passaic County and Sussex County area-bordering New York. I also posted this in NY forum for Orange County-just in case. So if you have or know of a good dentist on either side I would soooo appreciate it cause once I pick a dentist I am stuck with them for a year-plan rules.
If it helps I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield Dental and "DDS".
Thank you.

You have coverage under 2 dental insurance plans? You have a lot of options.

The best way to go about finding a dentist in your area is to do a search on the dental insurance website and find a the names of some local dentists. Then, google those names...sometimes you'll find reviews. If you can't find any reviews, at least you'll have a name you can inquire about around town.

I had DDS at my last job and I don't think they have a website. The DDS literature I had only listed a 1-800 number to call. When I needed a dentist, I called that number and gave the rep the name of my town...she rattled of a bunch of dentists in my town and the surrounding towns. I found that DDS was super easy, no fuss. I walked into a new dentist's office, got my treatment, and walked out. That's it. There was no copay, no bill, no statements. DDS didn't send me any extra paper work. It went very smoothly. On the downside, I don't think dentists make as much profit with DDS, so you might not have as wide a selection of dentists.

I'm not sure about Blue Cross/Blue Shield dental, but I had Blue Cross/Blue Shield health insurance and people only ever oooh'ed and aaaah'ed about them, so I'm sure their dental is just as good. I'm sure they have a dental website where you can look for dentists.
