How do you know if a dentist is 'good' ?

As a regular person, I can tell if my financial advisor is good because my investments beat the market.
I can tell if my barber is good since my haircut looks good.

But with dentists, how do you know? If the dentist fails to identify some chronic or longterm issue in a child, you might not find out until 20 years later.
There are lots of things a dentist could do wrong, but as far as I can tell, you have no way of knowing.

So how can a regular person tell if they have a 'good' dentist?

I would guess if your bite is good and you have no pain the dentist must be good.
