Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question about dentistry in general or Old School Dental in particular? If so, then you’ve come to the right place! Below, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions that we receive every day. If you have one that we haven’t covered on this page, please don’t hesitate to just give us a call! We’re always happy to talk dentistry with you and make sure you understand everything about taking care of your family’s oral health.

How often should my family come in for checkups and cleanings?

Dr. Staten agrees with the American Dental Association on this one: people of all ages should have at least two checkups and cleanings each year in order to keep them protected from the most common dental problems. Some may require more depending on their needs, but for most, two is enough to keep their smile healthy.

Do you see children?

Of course! Old School Dental welcomes every member of the local communities, so we’re more than ready to treat the youngest members of your family! We have the comforting atmosphere children need to stay relaxed as well as the treatments their growing smiles need.

What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?

While this answer can differ from individual to individual, Dr. Staten would recommend that patients with missing teeth consider dental implants to rebuild their smile. They offer the most complete and natural-looking option, and they can last for 30 years or more when properly cared for. Whether you’re missing one tooth or all of them, Dr. Staten can use implants to give you your complete smile back for a lifetime!

I have stains/chips/gaps in my smile. Can you help?

Yes! Dr. Staten has a tremendous amount of experience in the field of cosmetic dentistry, so we offer a wide selection of treatments that are specifically designed to eliminate aesthetic flaws to create that perfect smile. Whether you simply want whiter teeth or to get rid of noticeable chips and gaps, we can make it happen, and probably faster than you think!

How long does it take to have a tooth repaired?

Most other offices will require you to visit them two to three times to have a broken tooth or cavity repaired, but at Old School Dental, we can do it all in one well-planned visit! We have technology that allows us to design, manufacture, and place custom-made dental crowns completely in-house. All in all, the entire procedure usually takes just about an hour.

Will you accept my insurance?

Old School Dental is in-network with all major dental insurance plans, so we will gladly take your insurance. We’ll even go a step further and handle the claims process for you so we can make sure you’re getting the most out of your benefits. To learn how we can use your particular plan to help you save, contact us today.
