General Questions

Are all procedures covered by insurance?

No, you’ll need to check with your insurance provider to see what is covered under your plan or you can talk to our office staff about coverage.

Can I schedule online on my own?

Yes, you can request an appointment through Zocdoc.

How often should I See my Dentist?

Most dentistry experts recommend seeing your dentist every 6 months. However, if you have a chronic dental disease or medical condition that affects your oral health, you may need more frequent checkups.

How is a DDS Different from a DMD?

Both titles indicate the same level of general dentistry education, experience, and credentials.

How safe are dental x-rays?

Dental x-rays are very safe. The amount of radiation that a dental x-ray produces is about the same as you would receive from a cross country airplane ride. Radiation is measured in millirems and one dental x-ray has only .5 millirems. While it is safe please advise your dentist if you are pregnant.
