I am new to the hallandale beach/hollywood, florida area and need a great general dentist. Any recommendations? Forget the dental society-a list only.

Ask around. Word of mouth is the best way to find a dentist. Also, consider calling some of the local specialists for names of a general dentist. They see everyones care.
Ask your friends . The best way to find a new dentist is to talk to your friends, neighbors and people that you work with. The dental society list can be a good tool to find a dentist close to you, but talking to the people that you are meeting in your new neighboorhood can give you much more detailed information about the local dentists.
