Dental Care with a Caring Difference

Frequesnly Asked Dental Questions

Do you ever feel like your questions never get answered when you are at the dentist?

Have you heard about some new dental procedure? Did you think of a hundred questions to ask about your treatment-but only after you left our office?

We truly want to hear from you whenever you have a question or concern about your dental care. Please give us a call or email us, and we'll get back to you as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, we're sharing our answers to some of the questions that we most frequently receive. We hope they're helpful!

How do the doctors keep up to date on all of the current techniques and materials?

Dr. Sergakis takes many, many hours of continuing education programs each year-well beyond what is required by law. They are committed to staying informed of any breakthroughs in dental technology or treatment that could benefit their patients.

Do you accept referrals?

Absolutely! We actually offer a Friends and Family Referral program. If you refer a patient to us, that new patient gets $50 off any dental treatment-and you, as the person referring, get $25 credit towards the cost of your next dental treatment.

We know that our best new patients come from our existing patients, and we like the chance to reward those who appreciate the service and care that we offer.

Do you accept my insurance plan?

We do accept most insurance plans, and will be glad to help you fill out and file any required paperwork. The only insurance plans that we cannot accept are those that require you to go to a particular dentist.

What different payment options do you provide?

We refuse to let finances get in the way of the dental care that you need. That's why we provide a number of different financing options, including cash, check, credit card and extended payment options such as Care Credit and Dental Fee Plan. Some installment plans offer no interest options.

How can I ask the doctors a question directly?

You're always welcome to talk to us when you're in our office-we schedule in time for your questions. If you have questions at other times, you can always call our office or email us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. (Email is often the quickest way to reach us.) Of course, our staff members are always available and will be glad to answer any questions for you that they can.

What makes you different than any other dental practice I can visit?

We believe that there are many things that set us apart, starting with the fact that we truly do consider you part of the dental team. We'll listen to you carefully, answer your questions and concerns simply and honestly, and try to provide the dental treatment options that are right for you. We don't believe you'll find a practice that is more caring or more concerned about meeting your needs.

My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?

We'll answer by asking another question-if you touched your hand, and it bled, would you be concerned? Of course you would! It's the same thing with your gums. Bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease-a serious condition that has been linked with systemic problems such as heart disease and stroke.

If your gums are bleeding, we can help. Please call our office for an appointment so we can get started on your treatment.

I really do not like visiting the dentist, is there anything you can do to help me relax?

We've found that when patients are relaxed their visits are much easier. That's why we do everything we can to make your visit comfortable, with little touches like aromatherapy, blankets, massage, etc. We also offer nitrous oxide to help you relax during treatment.

For patients who are extremely nervous, we offer conscious sedation dentistry. You simply take a pill before you come to our office (no IVs necessary). Your whole dental visit will pass quickly and painlessly.

Crowns, veneers, on-lays, inlays and partials.where can I learn more about these procedures?

Just ask us! All of our staff members can answer your questions, and we have lots of educational materials that will give you even more information. We can also show you before and after pictures of patients who have had these procedures so you can get a real-life look at how these dental treatments can change a person's appearance.

I brush everyday, but my breath just is not fresh. Is there anything I can do?

You may not realize that the traditional mouth rinses contain a lot of alcohol. They may make your breath smell great at first, but once your mouth dries out your breath may be worse than before.

We have several breath remedies that are extremely effective and that won't make your mouth dry out. They include the complete Breath RX system and all natural herbal tooth and gum tonics. We'd be glad to personally discuss your options.
