Frequently Asked Questions
Will Dental X-Rays Hurt?
We will be as gentle as possible. Our office takes digital radiographs and we provide “Edge Ease” foam pads to help soften the sharp edges on the sensors. The exam can be completed with little or no discomfort.
Do I Need X-Rays?
We will need current x-rays in order to see disease not otherwise visible. If your referring dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they be forwarded to us.
What Will My Dental Treatment Cost?
Since all patients are different, your dentist must complete your examination before establishing your treatment planning and the fee for care. The fee for dental treatment can vary considerably depending on the type of problems and the complexity and length of treatment. An approximate fee can usually be determined at the initial visit; but on occasion, some initial treatment or further diagnostics must be completed before the final treatment planning can be established. Our philosophy of practice is to treat as conservatively as possible to attain treatment goals.
Will My Dental Insurance Cover Procedure Costs?
Dental insurance policies often cover a portion of your procedures.. Please bring all medical and dental benefit information and cards to your examination appointment. Upon request, we will submit a claim to predetermine your insurance benefits; however, this is not required by most plans.
