Do you have question about treatments, dental insurance, or any other dental-related topics? Our team of professionals is here to help you get the answers you need. Below, we’ve compiled a list of the most common questions that we receive from our patients. If you don’t get the answers you need, call us and ask!

Will my dental insurance cover my cosmetic procedure?

It’s very rare for dental insurance companies to cover cosmetic procedures unless they’re necessary to maintaining your oral health, like direct bonding to repair a broken tooth. If you do want a cosmetic treatment and aren’t sure how to pay for it, you can always finance it through CareCredit, who offers little-to-no interest payment plans that are great for all budgets.

Do you have a children’s dentist on staff?

Our caring dental team loves kids! We're ready to make their experience fun and positive, providing several kid-friendly treatments that help developing smiles grow to be healthy and happy!

How often should I change out my toothbrush?

According to the American Dental Association, you should change out the head of your electric toothbrush or your manual toothbrush every three months. It’s also important to change it out if you notice the bristles are frayed or after you get sick.

When should I schedule my child’s first dental appointment?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends scheduling your child’s first checkup as soon as their first tooth grows in or once they turn one year old.

Do you have special COVID-19 precautions in place?

Our Franklin Park dental office has implemented several safety protocols to make sure that our patient’s health and safety are prioritized. We also stay up-to-date with the latest news and recommended safety precautions from WHO, the CDC, and OSHA.

Is orthodontic treatment covered by dental insurance?

Not all dental insurance companies offer orthodontic treatment coverage. To find out if your plan does, you’ll need to contact them directly. Our team would also be happy to help you navigate your financing options.

If I have a toothache, do I need to visit an emergency dentist?

Toothaches are important to address quickly because it could mean that you have a tooth infection. Be sure to contact our dental office so we can schedule a same-day appointment for you to help you feel more comfortable and treat the issue.
