How often should I visit the dentist?
We agree with the American Dental Association that twice a year is a good start. For most patients, this is just enough to ensure the ongoing health of their smile. If we notice any areas for concern or chronic oral health conditions, we may increase the frequency of checkups to ensure patients maintain their optimal level of oral health.
Are kids welcome in your office?
We love treating whole families in our office. From the age of 6 months to 101, our team has you covered. We offer numerous essential dental treatments for kids, and we make visiting the dentist a fun experience for patients of all ages.
What if I have a dental emergency?
Please contact us right away if you experience pain or damage you believe may require urgent dental care. We’ll do our utmost to provide an emergency dentistry appointment on the same day you call, and one of our caring team members will be happy to walk you through first aid and pain management over the phone.
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is often referred to simply as gum disease. This oral health condition is extremely common, and there are a number of preventive and restorative therapies available to renew oral health when patients are suffering from gum disease.
Do you take my insurance?
We are in-network providers with numerous dental insurance plans, and we are happy to process and file claims for most benefit plans to ensure patients receive the maximum coverage.
