Your smile deserves the best!

If you’re thinking about having some cosmetic dentistry done, you want it done by the best dentist, right?

But, with so many cosmetic dentist practices in the Hanover, NH area, how do you choose the best one for you?

There are 4 important requirements you need to make sure your dentist meets before you make a decision!

Let’s start with the obvious: training and experience.

1. Do they know what they’re doing?

Many dentists are competent general dentists, but cosmetic dentistry goes beyond the basics of dentistry. It focuses on the aesthetics of your smile and seeks to improve its appearance.

Getting beautiful, natural-looking results with cosmetic dentistry requires a dentist with knowledge, skill, training, and an artistic eye. Look for a cosmetic dentist who is recognized by the American Academy of Cosmetic DentistryNew page opens in American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry/span> (AACD).


AACD members receive education and training on the latest procedures, techniques, and products. They stay a step ahead of their peers by keeping informed on trends and learning how the latest products and technology benefit their patients.

Dr. Michael Melkers and Dr. Paul WonsavageBoth Dr. Paul Wonsavage and Dr. Michal Melkers are long-standing members of the AACD. Dr. Wonsavage has passed his AACD written examination, his Type Two Case and is well on his journey towards accreditation.

In addition, they both hold Masterships with the Academy of General DentistryNew page opens in the American Academy of General Dentistry an honor only 3% of dentists across the country have achieved.

They have also sharpened their cosmetic and comprehensive skills by completing the entire continuum of courses at the prestigious Pankey InstituteNew page opens in the Pankey Institute website where Dr. Melkers now holds a Visiting Faculty position.

Together, they have decades of experience and thousands of hours of advanced training in providing their patients with cosmetic dentistry results that “wow!”

That brings us to the next point.

2. Look at their cosmetic dentistry results

Nothing can tell you faster whether a cosmetic dentist is the right one for you than looking at his or her handiwork.

When you’re good at what you do, it shows!

Reputable cosmetic dentists will have before and after photos of their work and will gladly share it with you. Often dentists will have a photo gallery featured on their website, which can give you a good idea of the kind of results they are achieving for their patients.

At Lyme Road Dental, our dentists are proud to share their cosmetic dentistry results.

3. Check out their online reviews

When you are going to buy a new car, eat at a new restaurant, or decide which movie to watch, don’t you often check the reviews about them first?

We all rely on word-of-mouth to give us firsthand knowledge about a product or service.

Consumer reviews can also help you decide which dental office is the best one for you.
