Frequently Asked Questions

Is there onsite parking?

Yes. Our parking lot on the east side of our building accommodates over 20 vehicles.

Do you offer general anesthesia?

Yes, if the procedure is extensive or the patient has a low tolerance for pain.

Do I need to arrive early for my first appointment?

Yes. The check-in and medical application takes around 30 minutes.

What do I need to qualify for financing?

Established credit history and average credit score.

Do I have to pay my entire deductible on my first visit?

No. We only require 20% upfront of your entire deductible.

How often should I visit the dentist?

The answer to this question depends on each individual patient’s oral health. For patients with healthy gums, little or no history of decay, good home-care and no significant medical conditions, we can usually help you maintain optimal health by scheduling cleanings and check-ups twice a year. Not all patients fall under this category however. After performing a comprehensive exam, we will develop a plan together. It is our job to inform and educate you. We will discuss all of your treatment options, giving you the advantages and disadvantages of each procedure. You will never be pressured into making a decision. We customize each treatment plan to fit our patient’s needs and wishes.

What should I use to clean my baby’s teeth?

A toothbrush will remove plaque bacteria that can lead to decay. Any soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head, preferably one designed specifically for infants, should be used at least once a day at bedtime.

How do dental sealants work?

A toothbrush will remove plaque bacteria that can lead to decay. Any soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head, preferably one designed specifically for infants, should be used at least once a day at bedtime.

Why would I only get one cleaning per year?

Short answer: because you have great oral health! The truth is that the benefit of a cleaning only lasts about 24 hours. (Hint: it’s the brushing and flossing in between cleaning that makes a huge difference.) But everyone is unique. If you’re at high risk for gum disease, your dentist may recommend a cleaning as often as once every three months. If you have great oral health, scientific studies show that one cleaning per year is optimal for you. It comes down to an assessment of your specific needs.

Do you offer financing?

Yes. We have a wide network of reputable lenders.

Do you offer cosmetic dentistry?

Yes. We offer a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures.

I just found out I am pregnant. Can I still get Novocaine?

Yes, but we recommend you postpone all major dental work during the last trimester.

What is gum disease?

Gingivitis is the mildest form of periodontal disease. It causes the gums to become red, swollen, and bleed easily.

What do I need to bring to my first appointment?

Proof of identification and insurance information.

What is your recommended daily routine for my teeth?

As a baseline, all patients should brush at least twice a day and ideally floss once a day. Daily flossing seems to be a major obstacle for most people. As a starting point, even flossing just twice a week would make a huge difference in the health of your gums.

When should I take my child to the dentist for the first check-up?

In order to prevent dental problems, your child should see a pediatric dentist when the first tooth appears, or no later than his/her first birthday.

What can I expect at my first visit?

During your first visit to our office, you will receive a thorough dental examination that includes X-rays and comprehensive risk assessments. Your dentist will develop a Personal Dental Care Plan based upon your immediate needs, current dental health and long-term oral health goals. This individual plan will include recommendations for cleanings, restorations and preventive treatments. Most patients will receive a cleaning at their first visit, based on the assessment and recommendation from your dentist.
