Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about prosthodontics and our office.
What's the difference between a general dentist and a prosthodontist?
Prosthodontics is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. A prosthodontist receives three years of special training after receiving a DDS or DMD degree. Prosthodontists specialize in complex dental cases.
After I come to your office, will I still continue to see my regular dentist?
After (and sometimes during) your treatment at our office, you'll return to your dentists' office to resume regular dental care.
Do you work with other dental specialists?
We often work with other dental specialists, including orthodontists, oral surgeons, and endodontists. We collaborate with these dental specialists – and with your regular dentist – to sequence the steps in your treatment and to provide the best solutions.
Do I need to be referred to your office by another dentist?
You don't need to be referred to our office by another dentist. We accept patients without a dental referral. You can call our office directly to schedule an appointment.
Do you accept insurance?
We accept most types of insurance. We can file for predetermination of benefits so that you'll know, ahead of time, what will be covered. We can also file your dental insurance claim for you.
