Moving can be stressful to say the least, and there are tons of things to do. Unfortunately, some important things can be missed during the transition. Recently in an appointment, a patient told us that she is moving to northern Florida. We never like to see patients leave but understand that she wants a dentist closer to home. We encouraged her to make sure caring for her smile isn’t forgotten in the busy move. She asked us, “How can I find an exceptional dentist in Orange Park?”

In this particular case, we were happy to know a trustworthy dentist in the area she was moving to. Dr. Matthew Nawrocki provides the same high-quality care that she has enjoyed here. But what about any other patients who are moving? This question got us thinking about what to look for in a dental practice after a move. Here are just a few features that we recommend at Nawrocki Dental for your next dental home if you’re moving away from Cocoa Beach.
