Frequently Asked Dental Questions in Lancaster

Do I have to visit your office twice a year?

It’s recommended that patients visit our office at least twice a year because this allows us to prevent many health concerns, and preserve the most natural dental structure by offering conservative treatments.

Can I bring my kids?

We love treating kids, and our team has years of training and experience with children’s unique health and behavioral needs. We also offer a number of services like dental sealants and topical fluoride that are geared toward helping patients with developing smiles.

Does teeth whitening really work?

For many patients, professional teeth whitening is able to deliver results up to ten shades brighter, but there are some cases in which whitening may not be effective. Schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation to find out if you’re a candidate for teeth whitening.

What is sedation dentistry?

Dental sedation is the use of a number of different methods to help patients relax and decrease pain or sensitivity during any dental treatment. We use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation at our Lancaster practice.

Can I call after hours if I have an emergency?

Absolutely. We have extended evening and Saturday hours, but we’re happy to offer emergency services for patients after hours and on Sundays. Call us right away.

I have a busy schedule, do you offer appointments after work?

We know how busy our patients are, and we do our utmost to provide a wide range of appointment times to fit within any schedule. We’re open until 6 pm Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, until 7 pm on Fridays, and until 8 pm on Wednesday. Additionally, we are open all day on Saturdays from 9 am to 4 pm.

Do you take my insurance?

We’re happy to process and file claims for any insurance provider including Medicaid, Medicare, and Chip. We work with patients to maximize coverage.
