Dental FAQs

How can I make an appointment?

You can schedule an appointment online or by calling (202) 363-2810.

How often should I see the dentist?

Children, teens, and adults should all see the dentist for a regular checkup at least once every six months. Patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancer or gum disease may be required to see the dentist more than just twice a year. Your doctor will help determine how often you should visit the dentist for regular checkups.

What types of insurance do you accept?

We accept all PPO insurances. We'll work with your insurance provider to make sure that your coverage meets your needs and your budget. Our office staff is always available to help you with insurance claims and paperwork. For more information on financial options, you can refer to our Financial Information page.

How often should I get a new toothbrush?

Your toothbrush will eventually wear out, especially if you are brushing your teeth twice a day for two to three minutes each time. Your dentist recommends that adults and children change their toothbrush every three months. If you are using an electric toothbrush, be sure to read the directions because you may not need to change toothbrush heads as frequently. Patients with gum disease are encouraged to change their toothbrush every four to six weeks to keep any bacteria from spreading. After brushing, rinse your toothbrush with hot water to kill germs and keep the bristles clean. If you’ve been sick, be sure to change your toothbrush as soon as possible.

At what age should my child start seeing the dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children first see a dentist as early as six months of age and no later than one year of age. During this time, your child’s baby teeth will be coming in and your dentist can examine the health of your child’s first few teeth. After the first visit, be sure to schedule regular checkups every six months.

What payment options do you offer?

Our practice accepts most major credit cards, all major PPOS, and also offer affordable payment plans with special financing through CareCredit and Springstone.
