Can I finance my dental work?

We want you have a strong, healthy smile, so we offer third-party financing through CareCredit. They offer flexible payment plans, often with low or no interest for qualified applicants. Please see their website for more information.

Are you accepting new patients?

Yes, we welcome the opportunity to give your friends, family, and coworkers the same quality care we provide you. Refer someone to our office and you'll receive a special gift! Call for details.

What is a cosmetic dentist?

Cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty recognized by the American Dental Association, so any general dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist. To choose a good cosmetic dentist, review the doctor's before-and-after photos of actual cases, ask about his or her postgraduate education in cosmetic dentistry, and make sure that you feel confident and comfortable in the office.

What is Bioesthetic dentistry?

Bioesthetic dentistry involves diagnosing and treating the human chewing mechanism, not as individual parts, but as a interdependent, whole system, from the jaw joints to the muscles and teeth.

How can improve my smile?

That sounds like an easy question to answer, but it isn't! Your smile is unique, and we won't compromise your individuality with smile enhancements. Smile design dentistry done right requires an initial consultation in which we'll discuss your goals, preferences, and options for care. Generally speaking, we may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, all-white restorations, and/or replacement teeth. After your comprehensive evaluation and consultation, we'll present a smile makeover plan for your unique needs and help you determine which treatments are right for you.

Do you see children?

Yes. We enjoy creating gorgeous, healthy smiles for patients of any age. If we find that your child would benefit from seeing a specialist, we'll refer to a trusted colleague. Some children deal with dental appointments better at a pedodontist's office, that's what a children's dentist is called. Rest assured that we only refer to trusted specialists with whom we have a good rapport.

Do you take credit cards?

Yes. For your convenience in paying for your dental care, we gladly accept all major credit cards.

Will you accept my dental insurance?

We're happy to electronically file your in-network or out-of-network insurance claim. Dr. Turk is a preferred provided for Delta Dental Premier. As the patient, you're responsible for all applicable co-pays and deductibles. If you have a question about your dental insurance, give us a call.

Does my insurance cover that?

Dental insurance is diverse. Some policies cover only a small percentage of fees, while others cover 50% or greater. The more you or your employer pays for premiums, the better the coverage, in most cases. Generally, dental insurance covers some restorative and preventive procedures. Under some circumstances, even cosmetic dentistry is covered. We accept CareCredit to make cosmetic dentistry affordable for our patients. If you have questions, give us a call. We'll be happy to tell you what your insurance will cover.
