Dental FAQs in Quakertown, PA
Read answers to popular questions patients have about our office and dentistry:
Are you accepting new patients?

Do you accept dental insurance and payment plans?

Does your office treat children?
Yes, our office sees children and adults. We can provide sleep apnea treatment for children and Invisalign for teens, in addition to routine fluoride treatments and dental sealants at regular dental visits.
How often do I need to visit the dentist?
We recommend that patients visit the dentist biannually or twice a year. Scheduling a dental visit every six months helps us keep track of your oral health and catch signs of developing oral health problems.
How can I improve my oral health?
Follow these tips to care for your smile at home:
- Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste that includes fluoride.
- Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
- Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
- Maintain your regular visits with our dentist every six months. During these visits, we will provide professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to make certain we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments.
What do I do if I have a dental emergency?
Contact our office for prompt care. We will do our best to see you as soon as possible if your emergency is during office hours. We can also instruct you on how to care for your smile at home while you wait. Leave a voicemail on the weekend or after hours.
