FAQ

What kind of precautions do you take to protect patient’s safety?

We are very conscious of patient safety and do everything possible to protect you in our office. We clean our dental tools in an autoclave, where they are heated to a high temperature and sterilized.  For everything else, we use only new or disposable materials.

Will I be charged if I cancel my dental appointment?

We ask that you give us at least 48 hours notice if you need to cancel an appointment.  We want to use this time to assist another patient who needs care. We do reserve the right to bill you for the scheduled time if you do not give us this notice.

Do I have to floss every day?

Flossing is very important.  Brushing only cleans about 80 percent of your teeth; flossing gets between the cracks and the crevices and takes care of the remaining 20 percent.

There are some electric toothbrushes that do a better job of cleaning your teeth than regular tooth brushing.  Although they don’t replace flossing, they can help you keep your teeth cleaner if flossing is something that you just won’t do.  Ask our doctors or our hygienists for recommendations.

I want my front teeth to look better, but I don’t want to wear braces.  What can you recommend?
Veneers are an easy and painless solution for fixing cosmetic problem (crooked, chipped, stained) front teeth.  With veneers, you can get a whole new smile in as little as two appointments!

What makes your practice different than any other that I could visit?

Our doctors are very interested in keeping up to date with all the recent advances in dental care.  They’re open to using the newest technologies to benefit their patients.

One example of that commitment to being in the forefront of care is our Urban Nirvana full-service laser center. We offer an array of services including anti-aging and acne treatments, laser hair removal, varicose vein therapy, Restlayne lip augmentation and Meso vitamin therapy.
