Q: How do I get to your office?

Q: Do you take my insurance?
A: We take most dental insurances. We will verify your insurance prior to treatment, if possible. You will only be required to pay the copay. However, we are not responsible for guaranteeing an insurance payment. The patient is responsible for any balance.

Q: Do you offer Botox treatment for frown lines?
A: Yes. Botox is a safe and easy treatment for frown lines.

Q: Do you see children?
A: Yes, we do. If actual dental work is necessary and the young child is very apprehensive, we will refer out the dental work and just take care of the cleaning.

Q: Do you perform oral surgery?
A: We do perform oral surgery, including difficult extractions. Some cases are referred out for sedation.

Q: Do you do orthodontics?
A: We do not offer orthodontic services but will be glad to recommend Orthodontists in the Birmingham area.

A: Medicare is a federal health insurance program for people age 65 and older. Dental work is not covered by Medicare.

Q: Do you have payment plans?
A: No, but some cases involving two visits can be divided into two payments.

Q: Do you have nitrous gas?
A: No, we use local anesthetics. In some cases, we may offer oral sedatives.

Q: Can you just call in prescriptions for me until I see my regular dentist?
A: No, that would be unwise to diagnose over the phone, as well as unlawful.

Q: Do you see workers’ compensation cases?
A: Yes, we do. We work with the employer and file paperwork involved.
