We’ve compiled some of the most frequently asked questions that our patients have, including children’s dental care, insurance options, and payment plans. If you have any other questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, we would love to hear from you.
At what age should my child start seeing the dentist?
Children should be seen around age two or as soon as all of the baby teeth have come in. At this appointment we help the child see that coming to the dentist can be a fun experience. Tooth decay is completely preventable so this is an opportunity to go over homecare (brushing and flossing), diet and habits with the parents.
What will be done at my first visit to Watson Dental Care?
Assuming you have no urgent dental problem we encourage an initial exam and x-rays with the dentist and a dental cleaning with our dental hygienist. You may start with a dental cleaning only after having a brief screening exam with Dr. Watson.
Can I become a patient if I don’t have dental insurance?
I haven’t been to the dentist in a long time & I’m sure I have treatment to be done. Can I start with a cleaning first?
We can do that once as long as there are no serious dental problems going on. We encourage a thorough dental exam take place within a week or so following the first cleaning.
Does Watson Dental Care accept walk-ins or do I need to make an appointment?
So that we have enough time available for your appointment it is always best to call ahead and schedule. We try very hard to accommodate all patients.
Does Watson Dental Care offer payment plans?
We work with CareCredit and ChaseHealth Advantage financial companies. You can easily apply online or by phone.
I’m really nervous about coming to the dentist. Do you offer any kind of sedation?
We have nitrous oxide sedation available. We also use anti-anxiety medication for the extremely nervous patients. We do not put patients to sleep in our practice.
Does your office file claims with my insurance company or do I have to file with my insurance?
We file electronically for our patients and follow-up on claims to be sure they are paid in a timely manner.
What forms of payment does Watson Dental Care accept?
Cash, Check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, AMEX, CareCredit and HealthChase Advance.
I have an allergy to latex. Can you accommodate someone like me at your office?
Yes, we wear nitrile gloves.
