Frequently Asked Questions

Do kids need to visit the dentist twice a year?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist two times every year just like adults. This allows us to help patients prevent common oral health concerns and keep their smiles healthy.

Can I call you if I have an emergency?

We encourage patients to contact us right away in the event of a dental emergency. We strive to see patients on the same day they call, and will do our utmost to help patients maintain their oral health until they reach our office.

I’m a daily coffee drinker. Can I whiten my teeth?

Patients who drink coffee every day are able to successfully brighten their smiles. We recommend a two-week initial at-home whitening treatment with a professional take-home whitening system. Then, patients should plan to touch up their results using whitening treatment as necessary.

Can you help me with teeth grinding?

Patients who suffer from teeth grinding as they sleep are fitted with a custom nightguard that prevents teeth from being damaged as they grind and clench together at night.

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are titanium posts that replace the root structure of missing teeth. Implant posts are surgically placed along the jawline and can support any number of replacement teeth.

Do you take my insurance?

We are in-network Delta, Premier, and United Concordia , but are happy to process and file insurance claims for any provider. Our goal is always to help patients make the most of their insurance investments.

Do I have to pay for my full treatment today?

We do require payment at the time of service via cash, check, or major credit cards. For patients unable to finance the full cost of treatment, we are happy to work with CareCredit, a third party medical financer.
