Our Most Commonly Asked Questions, Answered!

For those looking for answers to their questions and concerns, it’s always best to give our team a call. Not only is this quicker and more convenient, but someone at the office will be able to help provide the information you need or schedule your appointment. However, some people prefer to research on their own or have busier days. Still, to help make the process easier for you, our team has collected and answered some of our most frequently asked questions from patients in Louisville and beyond.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

The ideal location for you to undergo the dental treatment you need will always consist of a mixture of factors that are important to you. These may include things like credentials, safety, location, hours of operation, insurance, and financing. You should also keep in mind the kind of dental care you’re looking for or require. Do you simply need to schedule your routine dental checkup and cleaning? Are you interested in improving your smile with veneers or Invisalign? Do you need emergency dentistry?

Of course, you’ll also want to get to know your dental team and see how they interact with patients. Do they prioritize one-on-one treatments for each person? To get more familiar with the team, you might consider reading their bios on their website, that way you can learn about their backgrounds, education, and credentials.

How Much Does it Cost to Get a Tooth Extracted Without Insurance?

On average, the price for tooth extractions throughout the United States is typically between $150 and $400. Of course, the exact amount will vary based on different factors, including geography, the patient’s oral health, and the level of difficulty in removing the tooth. If you currently have dental insurance, be sure to consult your provider as well as our team about tooth extraction coverage.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Keep in mind that dentistry is mostly about prevention, so the best way to save money on treatments is to minimize your chances of needing them. That’s why dental checkups and cleanings are essential, as they allow you to maintain your clean and healthy smile while allowing us to address complications early on. Even so, if you require care, dental insurance is a great tool to help cover some or most of the cost of the procedure. If you aren’t insured, consider signing up for CareCredit financing, which can turn the total cost of treatments into monthly installments with little to no interest. Our practice also has periodic special offers that allow you to enjoy reduced prices for certain services.

What Level of Education is Required to Be a Dentist?

Every dentist throughout the United States must attain either a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Science (DDS) from one of the 67 Accredited dental schools in the country. To get accepted into one of these schools, one will require a bachelor's degree and high grades in a major in math or sciences. Dental school usually consists of 3 years of classroom studies and hands-on experience. Even after graduation, dentists typically seek continuing education to refine their skills and retain their license, and many go on to earn 1 of 12 specializations that are recognized by the American Dental Association—each of which requires an additional 3 years or more of training.
