Frequently Asked Questions
What dental services do you offer?
We are a full-service comprehensive dental practice. We offer preventative, restorative and cosmetic dental care services for the entire family. For a full list of our services and explanation of these, click here for more information.
I don’t see my insurance plan listed, does that mean that I cannot be seen by your office?
No. Many insurance plans offer benefits to be seen by out-of-network dental providers. To find out what your insurance covers for out-of-network providers, refer to your policy or contact your insurance directly. As a courtesy, we will file your insurance for you, even if we are not an in-network provider. However, we can only estimate (guess) insurance coverage and cannot guarantee payment from them. We also require upfront payment for any difference in fees. Should your insurance company not reimburse us for their portion, you will be responsible for the full amount. Although it is your responsibility to verify coverage with your insurance company directly, we can help you navigate your insurance and provide various payment options. Give us a call if you have any questions about insurance or payment options we offer and our specialist will be happy to speak with you to help in any way we can.
I am not currently a patient of record, but I would like to be a patient of your practice. Are you accepting new patients and how do I become a patient of record?
Yes, we are accepting new patients. To become a patient of record, you will need to fill out a new patient form here and request a new patient appointment. Or, you may call our office to make an appointment and fill out our new patient form at your first appointment and someone from our office will be in touch to get your appointment scheduled.
Do you accept dental insurance?
Yes, we are in-network providers for several dental insurances. Click here for a list of the current plans we are on. If you don’t see your plan listed, give us a call to discuss your options as we are constantly updating and adding plans.
Do you see children at your practice? When should my child be seen for their first dental appointment?
Yes, we welcome families, including children to our dental practice. The American Dental Association recommends that children should be seen by a dentist when their first tooth erupts or by age 1. However, it is typically unreasonable to expect that children will sit still for a full cleaning at this age, however we can take a look at their teeth and make sure that you are brushing properly at this age and educate you on how to care for your baby’s teeth or any potential problems we see at this age. We often see children around age 2 or 3 for their first cleaning, depending on how you feel your child will handle the visit. Typically, we try to keep these appointments shorter than normal adult cleanings (around 30-45 minutes) as they typically have a shorter attention span and less plaque buildup and periodontal issues at this age. We recommend bringing young children to your regular cleaning appointments if possible (not major dental work appointments) so that they will know what to expect when they do come for their first cleaning appointment.
I am an out-of-towner or not currently a patient of record, but I have a dental emergency. Will you see me?
Yes, tooth pain is no fun, especially when you are on vacation. We see dental emergencies and always strive to get you in to be seen by the doctor within 24 business hours. Give us a call to discuss your dental emergency and let us help you with your toothache or broken tooth. As a policy, we are not able to verify insurance benefits prior to emergency appointments, so payment is due at the time of service and as a courtesy, we will file your insurance after your visit.
