How do you look out for the safety of your patients?
Very well, actually! In addition to following guidelines set by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), we use disposable products as often as possible. Between each patient visit, we thoroughly clean treatment rooms and sterilize reusable instruments in an autoclave. Because we value safety, we have invested in a digital radiograph, which emits about 80% less radiation that a traditional X-ray machine. We also use intraoral cameras and photography for close-up images, which promotes accurate diagnoses. If you have questions about our safety and sterilization methods, call us. We'll answer your questions with enthusiasm because we love dentistry and our patients.
How does the doctor keep up to date on current techniques, technology, and materials in dentistry?
Our dentist - and our team - take more than the state's requirement for continuing education each year. We also read trade journals, attend professional association meetings, and do everything we can to keep in tune with the latest developments in general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, as well as dental technology. We are passionate about our careers, so we enjoy soaking up new information on our profession, then sharing it with you!
I have not been to the dentist in years, and I'm ashamed to let a professional see the condition of my mouth. Is your staff judgmental?
First of all, congratulations on your wise decision to prioritize dental healthcare. Your mouth is a big part of your overall health, quality of life, and self-esteem. We will not judge you; instead, we'll be happy to help you by addressing your oral problems, explaining treatment options, and then scheduling a plan of action that suits your schedule and your budget
How can dental implants help me?
Dental implants are a breakthrough in dentistry, and they can change your life. Enjoy the foods you once loved and reclaim full confidence with a more youthful smile! Call our dental office for a complimentary dental implant consultation. We perform all aspects of dental implants, from the initial consultation to surgical placement to restoration. Our team will be pleased to show you how dental implants work and how they can improve your quality of life.
What is a cosmetic dentist?
Cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty recognized by the American Dental Association, so any general dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist. To choose a good cosmetic dentist, review the doctor's before-and-after photos of actual cases, ask about his or her postgraduate education in cosmetic dentistry, and make sure that you feel confident and comfortable in the office.
I want to know more about changing my smile. What do you suggest?
An appointment. Your smile and your goals are unique. We offer a wide range of cosmetic services, and after your consultation, you'll know which services will deliver the smile of your dreams.
Will I be charged if I miss an appointment?
To keep the cost of dental services economical, our office must maintain a solid calendar of appointments. When a patient doesn't show up for a scheduled visit, we still have to carry the overhead for that hour. We understand that emergencies arise, and we are sensitive to these special situations. However, if you miss an appointment without letting us know ahead of time, we reserve the right to bill you a nominal fee to compensate. To avoid a missed appointment fee, simply call us 48 hours in advance so that we can fill your appointment time with a patient who needs to see us quickly. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Do you accept my insurance plan?
Yes! Ask us about how to maximize your insurance benefits. We will work with you to get the most of our your dental plan. We care about you and want to meet your needs so that you can enjoy a gorgeous, healthy, lifelong smile. In addition to making your dental experience comfortable and offering excellent clinical care, we will work hard to help you find creative solutions to afford the dental work you need - and the cosmetic enhancements you want.
If you have questions or concerns about the cost of your treatment or payment options, please feel free to give us a call. We'd be happy to set up an appointment to review your plan with you and explain your coverage. In addition to accepting cash, checks, and credit cards, Dr. Siegel works with these trusted third party financial institutions:
