Common Questions

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 homecare 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 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.

Do you accept insurance?

We are a part of the Aetna Global Benefits Network, some United Concordia plans, Delta Dental, Tricare, Chip. This means we are in some of these networks but not all &mbsp; even under the same insurance company. We ask our patients to review their insurance every year to see what coverage that they have. We process all claims electronically over a secure network. Consent forms are needed for Oral Surgery, Endo, Ortho, and Perio treatment to be signed by the patient. If you have any questions, please call our office for insurance details.
