This depends entirely on your needs. We evaluate your needs on every check-up and determine when you should be seen again. For those with no decay and healthy gums, we often recommend a year between check-ups. For those with higher needs, we would suggest that you be seen more frequently.
We can handle the submission of insurance claims on your behalf. If your insurance provider does not accept electronic claims, we will provide you with a physical insurance form to mail in.
For major treatments, we can also submit a pre-authorization to determine if your dental insurance covers the cost. To ensure accurate processing, it is important that you provide us with precise dental information.
Please note that you are responsible for paying the remaining balance after your insurance coverage is applied. Please let us know if you would like to discuss a payment plan, as that can also be arranged.
If you have any questions, contact us.

Brushing your teeth after any meal will help to reduce the amount of bacteria in your mouth that causes plaque build-up. At minimum you should brush your teeth twice in the day. Once in the morning and before sleeping at night. We also suggest using a soft bristle toothbrush.
You should floss your teeth at least once a day. This will loosen and remove plaque from under your gum. After 24-36 hours plaque hardens on the tooth causing tartar build-up. Flossing is extremely important in keeping gum disease in check.
