Frequently Asked Questions
At Grand Dental Studio, we believe that patient education is extremely important, because in our experience, an informed patient is usually a healthy one as well! To that end, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions our team receives every day below. If you have another question for us, please don’t hesitate to contact us today. We’re always happy to talk to you and make sure you understand all of your dental options.
How often should I visit the dentist?
Dr. Michael Kirk, as well as the American Dental Association, recommends that patients of all ages should visit the dentist at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings. These routine appointments will help prevent small dental problems from popping up and give Dr. Kirk the chance to catch and treat minor issues before they can become bigger headaches later.
Do you accept children?
Yes! Grand Dental Studio is ready and able to treat every member of your family, including its youngest members! As a parent himself, Dr. Kirk understands better than most the importance of early-age dental care. He and our team will know just how to keep your child comfortable while we provide the services their growing smile needs.
Can you help with a dental emergency?
Yes, we are able to accept emergency patients. Whether you’re dealing with a damaged tooth or severe toothache, we’ll be able to provide the relief you need. Just give us a call, and we’ll work to see you as soon as possible. We’ll make sure that no one has to wait while they are in pain!
I’m really nervous about going to the dentist…is there any way you can help?
Yes. We consciously have a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere so that absolutely anyone can feel comfortable in our office. If you need a little help to overcome dental nerves, we have a number of sedation options available as well. With them, we can calm anxious thoughts and prevent physical discomfort all at the same time. Contact us today if you think sedation would improve your next dental visit.
What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?
For those patients who are hoping to fill in the gaps in their smile, we would highly recommend dental implants. They are the most complete tooth replacement solution available today, able to create a new tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from nature. Even better, our team has the special training to handle the entire procedure from start to finish, ensuring that you can get everything you need in one convenient location.
Is there a way you can make my smile look better?
Yes! Every service we offer has some aesthetic benefit, but to take your smile to the next level, we can provide cosmetic dentistry. With one simple procedure, we can give you whiter teeth, straighter teeth, and even eliminate noticeable chips, cracks, and gaps. Whether you’re looking for a small change or a dramatic makeover, we’ll ensure that you leave our office with a smile you’re eager to show off.
Will you accept my dental insurance?
Grand Dental Studio is proud to be a very “insurance-friendly” practice and accept a long list of plans from many different providers. We’ll even handle the claims process for you so we can make sure you’re maximizing your benefits. To learn how we can use your specific plan to help you save, contact us today.
Is it possible to finance my dental care?
Yes! If you would like to break up the cost of your dental care into smaller monthly payments, we can help you quickly qualify for a payment plan with CareCredit or Alphaeon financing. With just a few clicks, you can find a plan that works perfectly with your budget. To explore your options and sign up for a plan today, click on the buttons on our New Patients page.
