How often do I need to visit the dentist?
We encourage patients to visit us at least two times each year for dental checkups. After you've been a patient in our office for some time, we may adjust this to more accurately meet your unique oral health and hygiene needs. That may mean visiting us more or less often.
Can I bring my kids to your office?
We are a family-friendly dental office, and our team is experienced in providing quality children’s dental services. Our top priority is to help young patients learn to love visiting the dentist, as well as caring for their smiles.
Am I too old for braces?
You’re never too old for any dental service that will deliver a smile that makes you feel more confident. However, if you’re looking for an orthodontic solution that allows you to maintain your professional image, we also offer cosmetic orthodontic options like Invisalign®.
Do you offer any treatment to help anxious patients?
We treat each patient with gentle, attentive care, but that’s not always enough to ensure complete comfort and relaxation. That’s where sedation dentistry comes in. We offer a wide range of sedation options to ensure patients are always completely at ease in our office.
Why should a dentist treat sleep apnea?
Dentists have years of training which allows them to achieve a complete understanding of how the oral and facial structures work together. This education makes them the ideal practitioners to treat obstructive sleep apnea, which is the blockage of the airway during sleep.
What do I do if I have a dental emergency?
Call Dental Care Today of Richardson right away! We are always here to help whenever our patients need us, and that includes dental emergencies.
Do you take my insurance?
We are happy to process and file dental insurance claims for most major providers. We are in-network with many PPO benefit plans to ensure patients receive the maximum benefits.
