Whether you have moved to a new community or you are feeling underwhelmed with the care provided by your current dentist, it may be time to find a new dentist. In this blog, two of Arkansas’s most respected dentists — Dr. Lance Porter and Dr. Will Warren — explain what you should look for when choosing a new dentist.


Undoubtedly, experience should be one of the leading factors in your search for a new dentist. You want a professional who understands how to identify and navigate through a variety of dental and periodontal health problems to provide you with the best treatment. Dr. Porter has been serving patients for decades.  

Full Dentistry Options

While some dentists specialize in specific fields of dentistry like general dentistry or cosmetic dentistry, it is convenient to have a dentist who excels in all facets of dentistry. Having a dentist who performs general dentistry as well as restorative and cosmetic procedures is more convenient as it can save you trips to the dentist’s office. Moreover, it’s much easier to develop a trusting relationship with one dentist rather than several. Porter Dental Clinic offers a variety of procedures, making it a great one-stop dentist office.

An Inviting Office Environment

Many people have a fear of the dentist. Whether or not you have anxiety when visiting a dental office, it certainly does not hurt to spend time in an atmosphere that is calming and focused on the well-being of the patient. You want to find a practice that has a friendly staff that respects you, as well as your free time. At Porter Dental Health Clinic, we have deliberately created an environment that is warm and welcoming so that you will continue to come back. Continued visits are the best way to protect the health of your teeth and gums.

Great Patient Reviews

The testimony of fellow patients is another reliable indication of how good a practice is. Browsing online feedback provides a sense of whether the staff is friendly, the dentist is competent and gentle and appointments are on-time. A patient that takes the time to type a review is probably enthusiastic about his or her dentist. Porter Dental Health Clinic currently boasts an impressive 5/5 stars on Healthgrades and 4.9/5 stars on Facebook.
