What should I expect during my visit?
If you have additional questions, please contact our staff and we will be happy to help! We want to make your visit comfortable and enjoyable.
+ Is the office wheelchair accessible?
Our office is wheelchair accessible. Please let us know ahead of time if you would like us to make any special arrangements for you. We want to make your visit as comfortable as possible.
+ Can I schedule an appointment for a cleaning only?
Without an evaluation performed by the doctor, we are unable to determine your specific treatment needs. Based on your exam, the doctor will diagnose the proper cleaning recommended for you. We offer several types of cleanings and want to be sure we allow adequate time to perform the services.
+ Are dental x-rays really necessary?
Yes. Many diseases, lesions, and conditions can only be detected with the use of dental radiographs. It is impossible to see directly between the teeth or under the gums or bone without the use of a dental radiograph. Many times the patient has no signs or symptoms of disease. Dental x-rays can detect disease much sooner than the clinical examination alone. This enables the dentist to identify problems early so that pain and extensive, costly treatment can be avoided.
+ Do you accept Medicaid, Medicare, etc.?
Medicaid is not insurance, it is a state-funded plan, and unfortunately, our office does not work with these programs. We do work with most dental insurance plans and participate with Blue Cross and Delta Dental. We also offer financing plans through Care Credit to help you afford the quality dentistry you need and the great smile you deserve.
+ Do you see children?
Yes. Abramson Family Dentistry encourages parents to bring their children into the office as soon as they see teeth erupting (as early as six months). The sooner a child can be brought to the office, the earlier any issues can be detected. This also gives us the opportunity to talk about the child's diet and tips for brushing and prevention of dental decay.
+ Are you accepting new patients?
Yes. Your initial appointment as a new patient includes a comprehensive exam, x-rays, and a consultation. At the time of the consultation, the office manager will go over your treatment plan, pricing options, and will schedule you for any future appointments.
