The dental office can be a nerve racking place. Visiting the dentist is essential for staying healthy and keeping your teeth. If you are comfortable with your dentist and their staff, the experience is easier.
But what if you have concerns regarding the recommended treatment? If you have dental health problems that require major dental work, you may benefit from a second opinion.
Dr. Jafarifar would be happy to help you. You are never wrong in getting a second opinion. This is sometimes the most important decision a person can make. Second opinions may confirm, refute, or clarify the situation.
Reasons for Getting a Second Opinion
- You are concerned about the cost
- You are unsure if the treatment is necessary
- You are not comfortable with your current dentist
- A major problem has been diagnosed
- You have had work done that has not fixed your problem
Benefits of Getting a Second Opinion with Dr. Jafarifar

She will take the time to listen to your concerns and will discuss with you all the options for treatment. This way you can make an informed decision about the treatment you choose to receive.
