Will you accept my dental insurance?
As long as you have the ability to choose your own provider, we will most likely accept your dental insurance. We’ll also file your claims for you. That way, you don’t have to lift a finger to enjoy the savings! To find out whether we’ll work with your specific plan, just contact us.
I don’t have dental insurance. What else can I do to make my care affordable?
You can sign up for our VIP Membership Plan. It offers coverage that is similar to traditional dental insurance, plus discounts on cosmetic and specialty services that insurance might not pay for. There aren’t even any deductibles or waiting periods to worry about. We also offer low-interest, third-party financing through CareCredit. To learn how to save on your dental care, give us a call.
Will you treat my child?
Yes! We’re more than happy to take care of any young smiles you have at home. Our dental professionals have experiencing treating toddlers, teens, and everyone in between. We offer a variety of dental services for kids and will go the extra mile to make sure your child is comfortable in the treatment chair.
What is my best option for replacing my missing teeth?
The answer to this question varies based on each patient’s specific oral needs. In most cases, however, we will recommend dental implants as a tooth loss solution. They are the only treatment that recreates the entire structure of a lost tooth, from the root through the crown. Also, they last much longer than alternative options.
How often should I go to the dentist?
The American Dental Association recommends that the average person visit their dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning. These routine appointments allow us to treat minor dental problems before they become serious, and cleanings let us remove cavity-causing plaque from your teeth. Patients with outstanding oral health issues may need to visit us more often.
What is the best way to whiten my teeth?
Rather than using a messy strip or gel that doesn’t really affect the color of your teeth, you can dramatically brighten your smile in about an hour here at Wauwatosa Dental Arts. We can also provide you with custom-made whitening kits so you can transform your smile in the comfort of your own home.
