We specialize in lifetime care, which means our focus is on helping you keep your teeth and an attractive smile for your whole life. Below are common questions and our answers about lifetime dental care.
We recommend that patients see us at least every 6 months for a cleaning and periodic exam. Why? By we are able to keep the most difficult areas of your mouth clean that are harder to reach with regular brushing and flossing. When these areas are neglected, they can become homes to bacteria that have a harmful effect on your teeth, your gums, and your overall health. So, you'll stay healthier and can avoid unnecessary dental and health problems by seeing us every six months or more if recommended.
We take a personal approach with every patient to understand his or her needs and wants. We work to help you understand all the options available to achieve the goals for your health and the appearance of your smile. You are always in the driver's seat to make the final decision with our total support. We hope you will see us as an important member of your total healthcare team for a lifetime of smiles.
You can expect a great experience on your first and every visit to our office. The first time you come in, we'll ask you to fill out some routine paperwork including a medical and dental history so we are up to date on your present situation. You'll go through our routine dental exam to check for the health of your teeth and gums as well as do our routine oral cancer exam. Our goal for your first visit is your comfort and peace of mind that comes from knowing you are in good hands and have the information you want to make an informed decision about your health and your smile. For more information on your first visit, see "your first visit."
Fear of dental treatment is common and usually comes from a bad experience in the past or fear of the unknown. We do a number of things to make sure your visit to our office is always a pleasant one:
We work to help you make the best use of the dental insurance benefits you have. We will be happy to estimate your benefits before treatment begins and file your claim. We are a preferred provider with many dental insurance companies and accept assignment of benefits. Since we work with dental insurance benefits every day, we are happy to answer any questions you might have and help you receive the most value for your healthcare investment.
We know that your time is one of your most valuable assets. We work with you to find the most convenient time that fits your schedule for your dental appointments. We reserve your appointment time on our calendar the day we set that appointment together and ask you to do the same so that we can stay on track with the goals you have set for your mouth and your health. In the unlikely event that something unavoidable comes up that prevents you from keeping your appointment, please let us know immediately so that other patients will not be inconvenienced and so that we can work together to stay on track with your treatment.
We have a variety of ways you can check in depending on your preference. As a patient you can have a private, secure, on-line account through this web site where you can check your next appointment time, see all your past treatment, communicate with the office, and even make any payments due. You also have your choice of how you would like to hear from us, either by phone, mail, e-mail, or text. All of those preferences can be set up after your first visit to the office.
