Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take dental insurance?
We are a participating provider with some of the major insurance plans. We will be happy to file insurance claims on your behalf for any other dental insurance company you may use. Due to vast differences in dental plans, a call to your insurance company before an appointment or procedure will help you plan for your dental needs. Please contact our office for further details.
Do you work with children and young adults?
Yes. For our pediatric and young adult population, we recommend regular fluoride treatments as well as placing sealants as soon as permanent molars erupt. A sealant is a clear, plastic material which is placed on the chewing surface of the back teeth to seal out decay.
I am concerned about radiation from x-rays. How can your practice address these concerns?
Reducing exposure to radiation is a primary concern for all. As a result, we employ digital radiography. With this technology, each picture taken gives off just 1/10 the radiation of a conventional x-ray. Additionally, we use a thyroid collar.
How long will I have to wait for x-ray results?
Digital radiography permits you to see the x-ray immediately – right in front of you – magnified on a screen. There’s no waiting time to get results.
Do you offer any alternative solutions to standard dental drills?
For our patients who dislike the drill, we have an air abrasion machine that removes cavities with sand and air. It’s not actually sand being used, but medical-grade alpha alumna particles, one of the ingredients found in toothpaste. These particles, emitted from a tiny wand the size of a small pen, clean out decay. In some cases, no anesthetic is necessary.
Do you offer cosmetic procedures?
Dr. Dornbusch offers the latest in cosmetic procedures. Interested in bleaching your teeth? We have several options available. We can brighten your smile with an at-home bleaching procedure which demands very little of your time. We also offer chair side bleaching.
