Frequently Asked Questions from New Patients

Dental care is vital to good health, and we understand that budgeting can be a challenge – especially in a dental emergency. We work with all major insurance providers, and if you don’t have insurance, our administrative team can help determine a manageable payment plan.

We don’t want you to go hungry or thirsty! Unless the team recommends otherwise, you can eat and drink normally before your appointment. However, we ask that you give your teeth a quick flossing and brush before you come in to make your appointment a little quicker and help us get a better look at your teeth and gums. 

We’re glad you asked. While regular dental care is important, it’s what happens in between that makes the biggest impact on your oral health. For people with generally healthy teeth and gums, we recommend brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least three times a week for optimal oral health. We customize individualized preventative dental plans for all of our patients.

We recommend brushing two minutes twice a day, and flossing daily. We customize individualized preventative home care for each patient we see.
