Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING THE RIGHT DENTIST FOR ME?
There are many things to take into consideration while choosing the right dentist for you and your family. We recommend confirming office hours work with your schedule, the convenience of the office location, and the quality of the care provided by the dentist and the staff.
AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I START TAKING MY CHILD TO SEE THE DENTIST?
Children should first be seen when they get their first tooth. This is a great opportunity to get the child comfortable with a dental exam, as well as to review eating habits and cleaning instructions. Tooth decay is preventable. Together, we can help your child have a healthy mouth!
DO YOU ACCEPT MY INSURANCE?
We accept most dental insurance plans. We also offer an in-house Dental Savers Plan. Please call our office at 765-529-8668 for specific questions on either option!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SEE THE DENTIST?
It is recommended to visit the dentist every 6 months for routine cleaning. During a routine teeth cleaning, we’ll remove plaque and tartar buildup, check for cavities, perform an oral cancer screening, and help you develop better oral hygiene habits at home for better, longer-lasting results.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHANGE MY TOOTHBRUSH?
The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every 2-3 months or sooner if you see any fraying on the brush bristles.
HOW CAN I MAKE MY TEETH WHITER?
We offer multiple methods to whiten your teeth. Take home trays typically provide subtle improvements; whereas in office treatments offer more dramatic results. Be sure to discuss with us at your next appointment to determine the best option for you!
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT DURING YOUR FIRST DENTAL VISIT?
We are very thorough! Our goal is to help you optimize your oral health. Your first appointment will consist of information gathering through exam and X-rays. Once complete, we’ll inform you of our findings and answer any questions you may have. If time allows for us to begin treatment the same day, we will. Otherwise, we will schedule a time that is convenient for you.
