Still have questions?
We directly bill all dental insurance. You will only be responsible for the difference that the insurance does not cover.
When visiting the dentist, it’s the dentist’s role to make a treatment plan based on your oral health needs. If you don’t have insurance, our clinic will work with you to break down the treatment plan into stages that are financially manageable.
We completely understand that dental anxiety and phobias are common concerns, and we prioritize our patients’ comfort and well-being. To address these concerns, we employ a patient-centred approach:
Please arrive 10 minutes early to fill out new patient forms.
There are three parts to your first appointment – a comprehensive exam, cleaning, and treatment planning.
How often you need to have X-rays depends on your oral health. A healthy adult who has not had cavities or other problems for a couple of years probably won’t need X-rays at every appointment. If your dental situation is less stable and requires monitoring, you may require more frequent x-rays.
If you’re not sure, please don’t hesitate to ask. Dental X-rays are a vital tool for us to ensure that small problems don’t develop into bigger ones.
How often depends on your oral health needs. The goal is to catch small problems early. For many, this means a dental exam every six months. Our dentist and hygienists may suggest that you visit more or less often depending on how well you care for your teeth and gums, problems you have that need to be checked or treated, how fast tartar builds up on your teeth etc.
Our clinic encourages your child to visit the dentist within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age.
A positive dental experience is important especially if it’s your child’s first visit. Early dental care ensures the healthy development of teeth and good dental hygiene habits.
If your child is under 2 years old and it’s their first visit to the dentist, we offer Happy Visits (no charge)!
