Please find here answers to some of the more common questions patients ask about our dental services. Of course, I’m happy to discuss your particular questions and dental needs at your convenience.
I practice comprehensive general and cosmetic dentistry. Using the latest proven techniques, I provide my patients with high quality, functional, esthetic dental work.
Because medical and dental benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, a review of your specific plan is necessary. If you would like my office to check your plan for you, please call us at 212-777-8160 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can do the research.
Usually we need your Name, ID number, Date of Birth, and the telephone number listed on your card.
We will let you know what your estimated insurance benefits are. For deductible, co-pay and non-covered procedures we accept debit card, credit card, cash and checks.
No. I reserve time for one patient at a time. You will have time to talk about your concerns and needs. Since the time is reserved for one patient at a time, if you should need to cancel an appointment, please call as soon as possible so that we may schedule the time for someone else.
Yes. All fillings are tooth-colored.
I do not use metal or mercury fillings (often called silver fillings, even though they contain mostly mercury).
I use white fillings, made of a resin composite. They look natural and are difficult to detect.
Digital x-rays are captured by a sensor not film. The images are sharper and can be manipulated for better diagnosis.
More importantly, since they require about a sixth of the radiation, patient exposure is greatly reduced.
Please, don’t hesitate to call the office at 212-777-8160, or e-mail at email@example.com for more information.
