It is recommended that you visit a dentist every six months to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy. Even those that brush, floss and use mouthwash may need extra treatments every now and then to maintain a healthy smile! Whether you have moved to a new area or simply want to change practice, here are our top tips on finding a local dentist online.

If you move to a new area you will need to find a new local dentist online.

Health care providers’ websites

If you are looking to find a dentist in your area then you may want to have a look on your health care providers’ website. A long with doctors and other medical specialists, your private health care provider should be able to offer you a list of local dentists where you can undergo check-ups and treatment in line with your health insurance plan. Usually you will need to type in your postcode and the type of appointment you require. The website will then bring up the dentists that match your requirements, listing them by the practice that is closest to you. From there you should be able to access the dentists’ individual websites, along with their contact information so that you can book an appointment.

Online directories

These days it couldn’t be easier to find a local dentist online, especially since there are hundreds of national and local directories for you to make use of! One of the best online dental directories we have come across is DabaDoc. Serving Morocco, this site provides a free bespoke service that matches you to your perfect dentist based on your dental needs and location. So for example it’s perfect if you are looking for a Dentist in Casablanca or Rabat or in other Moroccan towns/cities.

Once you have found your perfect dentist you can see what appointments they have available and book one right there and then! Interactive online dental directories like this make booking an appointment so much easier. There is no need to take time out of your day to make a phone call or visit in-person. You can simply do it with a few clicks of your computer mouse.

Many online directories also enable you to search for specialist dentists. For example, if you need to have a brace put on your teeth, then you will need to see an orthodontist, rather than a regular dentist. Those that would like to have their teeth whitened will need to search for a local dentist that specialises in cosmetic treatments.

Social media

The final way you can search for a local dentist online is via social media. It is likely that the people you connect with on social media will be based in your local area, therefore making it likely that they use a dentist in your area too. Simply asking people for their recommendations is one of the best ways to find a good local dentist. Ask a few of your local contacts or simply put out a general status and you are sure to receive a number of replies from people wanting to recommend their fabulous dentists! If you are looking for a dentist that is able to do a specific procedure or offer a specific treatment, then be sure to ask your contacts about this as they may be able to provide you information based on their own experiences.

Simply look online and you can find the perfect local dentist in a matter of seconds!


If you are looking to register at a new local dentist, the internet is the place to go. In just a few clicks of a button you can be presented with a whole list of local dentists ready to offer their services. Whether you use your health care provider’s website, a dental directory or simply ask your online friends for their recommendations, you are sure to find the perfect dentist to meet your needs and requirements.
