Google reviews help increase visibility, but the biggest thing that reviews can do is build credibility and trust. Both qualities are desired by patients, consumers, entrepreneurs, and the like. From buying a house to completing a medical procedure, reviews are raw, un-edited consumer-based information that can help you make an informed decision about a product or service. Read our dentist reviews if you are looking for a “dentist near me” in Lincoln, NE area.

What if you search Google for: “How do I find the best dentist in my area?Our dentist in Lincoln, NE explains…

While everyone has different qualities that define “best,” it’s always a good idea to ask around. Talk to those you know. Many times, great recommendations can come by word of mouth. You can also look online for Google reviews. Online reviews can offer great information about a particular person (in this case, a dentist) or a service.

The American Dental Association (ADA) offers these suggestions:

  1. Ask family, friends, neighbors, or co-workers for their recommendations in finding the best dentist in your area.
  2. Ask your family doctor or local pharmacist.
  3. If you’re moving, ask your Lincoln, NE dentist for a recommendation

How do I choose a dentist? Our dentist in Lincoln, NE explains…

Choosing a dentist can sometimes be tricky. It might be that you have to shop around a bit. If you completed a visit with a dental provider and felt that they didn’t mesh with your personality, or offer the qualities you were hoping to find, keep shopping. In the end, you need to find a dental provider that provides quality care and the services that are important to you. There is nothing to be ashamed of if it takes time to find the right provider. Be an honest advocate for yourself – you deserve to feel comfortable while receiving quality care.

Look for things such as whether or not a perspective dentist offers conscious sedation in dentistry if perhaps you have a dental phobia. Maybe look for evening or weekend hours if you travel for work and are gone frequently. Another thing to look for is payment options. Perhaps you already know you need an extensive amount of dental work and it would be more feasible for you if you had payment options. While these are only a few of the things you should look for, we think it’s a great start.

“Love Coddington Dental!”


“There are so many people that dread going to the dentist. I use to be one of those people until I found Coddington Dental. I love walking in and be greeted with smiling faces and positive attitudes. The staff are kind, caring, compassionate and always willing to take the time to listen and address any concerns you may have. Dr. Alderman and staff always talk you through the process of your treatment before hand and also during the procedure. This makes any anxiety I have immediately go away. In all my years of go to the dentist, I would have to say this is the only place I have been comfortable. I don’t dread going to the dentist anymore! This is the best dentist office”
