In the past, there has been much trauma associated with dental care services, but not anymore.
With the advent of newer, more sophisticated technology and medication, trauma has become a thing of the past with respect to dental services. We undertake the best practices, keeping extensive patient records to understand your medical history and provide easy solutions to your dental needs. You can talk to us about your insurance plan. We will look into it and try to provide you with the best quote possible.
At Lake Bonavista Dental Associates, we provide direct billing to pretty much all dental insurance plans for our services to provide a hassle-free experience to you.
As long as you have a good dental insurance plan, with our direct-billing service, we will reach out to your insurance provider and handle all the payment processes, so you can relax after your dental appointment.
Preparation always comes in handy. It is advisable to carry certain information along for the ease of billing process, irrespective of emergency-related or not. As we direct your bill to the insurance provider, please bring:
Your insurance plan number and policy number
A form of I.D. to verify your coverage
Any informational booklets specifying your coverage
For the situations where the amount exceeds your insurance covers, or where we don’t direct the bill, please be prepared with another form of payment such as cash, debit card or any major credit card.
We are open during COVID-19 to serve our patients. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority. We look forward to welcoming back our patients for routine treatment and emergencies.
The existing standards for sterilization and cleanliness were already in place, but we’re taking it up another notch. We have installed Air Filtration Units in the clinic for an even safer visit! Please don’t be surprised by the added measures. This is just a proactive effort to safeguard your wellness.
Do I Have to Brush After Dinner?
Yes. Bacteria can do nasty things to your teeth while you sleep and can cause major damage over time, directing the need for filling and root canal. It is highly advisable to brush after dinner or before going to sleep.
When Should I Visit My Dentist?
An oral check-up is advised every six months, or when you can visibly see a tooth condition that causes you pain.
Will It Hurt?
A simple oral check-up to stay ahead of any major dental work does not hurt. It is a quick and easy check-up undertaken by practiced hands. If, due to negligence, you find yourself meeting with your dentist for cavity filling or any other dental work, there is no reason to worry. Most dental services are painless, and you can ask to be sedated for pain relief.
What Foods Are Good for My Teeth?
Since childhood, you have been told that sugar is not good for your teeth. This is true, as sugar invites bacteria and spoils healthy teeth. Except that, your overall dental health is based on your daily diet, so make sure to have a balanced diet, along with a daily oral regimen of brushing and flossing to keep your teeth healthy.
