If you’ve ever had a question for us chances are you weren’t the only one with the same question. So, we thought we’d make it easier for you and answer all of your questions in one place! Some of our most frequently asked questions are:
What Insurances do you take? : We take all insurances! Although, we may not be considered “in-network” with every insurance we will still submit it for you and try to maximize your benefits as best as we can. However, you’ll be happy to know that there is a long list of insurances that we are in-network with. We are always happy to do a complimentary benefits check for you when you come into the office so that we can get the best understanding of your dental benefits.
Are you open on Saturday’s? : Yes! We are open one Saturday a month during the school year. We also offer evening hours to accommodate your schedule.
How long do I have to wait to eat after my fluoride treatment? : After your fluoride varnish you can eat or drink right away! We suggest that you avoid anything hot, sticky or crunchy.
Do you offer payment plans? : We have a variety of payment options to help make dental treatment affordable. A very popular option is Care Credit, which is a credit card that is interest free if paid within 6 or 12 months. We are happy to give you more information and walk you through the application process if it sounds like an option you might be interested in.
Do you see children? : Yes! We see patients of all ages.
Is it normal for my tooth to be sensitive after a filling? : The answer is yes, it is normal. After having work done in a certain area it is natural for it to be a bit sore from the drilling and poking around. If you are experiencing sensitivity we suggest using sensodyne toothpaste and avoiding hot or cold foods. The sensitivity should fade within a few days.
Why should my child get sealants? : We recommend our patients get sealants on their six and twelve year molars as soon as they come in. Sealants are a thin tooth colored material that goes on the chewing surface of your teeth to help prevent cavities.
