Q?

How can I pay for dental care? Do you offer financing?

A.

Yes – we work with patients to make dental care affordable. Finances should not affect your dental health. We accept cash, checks and credit cards. We also work with Care Credit to arrange alternative financial arrangements.

Q?

Do you refer to specialists?

A.

Yes – When it is in your best interest to see a specialist we will refer you.  This includes oral surgeons (oral surgery), periodontists (gum specialists), orthodontists (tooth straightening), endodontists (root canals) and pedodontists (children’s dentistry).

Q?

I wear dentures, do I still need to see a dentist?

A.

Yes – Denture teeth wear and so does the bone the denture fits on. Poorly fit or worn dentures can/may cause sleep apnea, stroke or even death. Yearly cancer screenings, exams of denture users are extremely important.

Q?

Does dentistry in our office consist of more than just filling teeth?

A.

Yes! Our dentists will examine all of your teeth and also go over sleep apnea, jaw related pain (TMJ), periodontal disease, oral cancer, diabetes, and hypertension.

Q?

Do you use any foreign labs?

A.

No – we only use reputable, first class labs that certify all their restorations. We do not use any foreign labs or labs that ship their work to a foreign affiliate.

Q?

Do we use sedation?

A.

Yes - we offer IV sedation at our Galva location for the patient that may be apprehensive about dental treatment especially during implant or oral surgery procedures.

Q?

Do we do orthodontics?

A.

Yes – we do ortho cases with Invisalign if it involves minor tooth movement. We would first set up an appointment to see if you are a candidate for these services.

Q?

Do we work on children?

A.

Yes – we work on patients of all ages in some cases we may have to refer the child to a pedodontist (a dentist who specializes in working on children).

Q?

Do we use the latest technology?

A.

Yes – we currently have digital x-rays – These are easier to read than film. We also have the ability to manipulate contrast which makes diagnosis more accurate. We also use an intra-oral camera to help identify dental problems and help patients understand their dental needs. We use electric handpieces that are quieter and more comfortable than the traditional air driven handpieces. We also have a soft tissue laser that comfortably removes unhealthy tissue in the mouth.
