  • Are you accepting new patients?
    Yes! We are accepting new patients of all ages. Please contact us to make an appointment.
  • What if I have an emergency?
    We provide emergency dental care to new and existing patients. If you experience a dental emergency, be sure to call our practice at (225) 369-0481 as soon as possible. If you need immediate attention after hours and are unable to reach our office during an emergency, dial 911.
  • What should I expect at my first appointment?
    Once you contact us and set up an appointment, we will send you forms to complete prior to the visit. Your new patient appointment includes a set of x-rays, a full mouth examination, an oral cancer screening, and a periodontal screening to develop the best treatment plan that fits your needs and budget. During a cleaning, your hygienist will remove stains, tartar, and plaque from your teeth with professional tools. Feel free to ask questions before we get started. We will do our utmost to keep you completely comfortable the whole time!
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    Please notify us at least 48 hours in advance if you need to cancel your appointment. Later notice may result in a cancellation fee.
  • Why is dental health important to overall health?
    Dentists help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Nearly half of Americans over 30 have gum disease. People with gum disease (periodontal disease) have two to three times the risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or other serious cardiovascular event. Dentists also screen for signs of oral cancer.
  • What is the best way to brush my teeth?
    Brush twice a day. Choose a toothbrush with soft or extra-soft bristles. Dr. Moses recommends an electric toothbrush, although a manual toothbrush can also be effective. Apply a pea-sized squeeze of fluoride toothpaste to your toothbrush. Brush for two minutes. Brush each tooth inside and out, including along the gumline. Use a gentle circular or back-and-forth motion. Brush your tongue, too. Rinse out your mouth with water after brushing.
  • How often should I change my toothbrush?
    Replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or whenever it starts to show signs of wear. Choose a toothbrush with soft or extra-soft bristles. Dr. Moses recommends an electric toothbrush, although a manual toothbrush can also be effective.
  • Do I really need to floss?
    Flossing every day is important for your oral health. Food that’s left between the teeth can cause tooth decay and gum disease (periodontal disease). Around 50% of Americans over 30 have gum disease. Talk to your hygienist about the options that would work best for you, including waxed/unwaxed dental floss, picks, or a water flosser.
  • How often should I see the dentist?
    Brushing and flossing daily is important, but not a substitute for professional dental care! The American Dental Association recommends a dental cleaning and checkup every 6 months. Patients with dental implants and gingivitis may need to visit more frequently.
  • What are my options to replace missing teeth?
    Dental implants are the most durable and realistic solution to missing teeth. They are anchored in your jaw and topped with a crown. Another option is a dental bridge, which attaches to the adjacent teeth over the gap where your missing tooth is. If you are missing multiple teeth, we also offer functional, realistic, and comfortable dentures.
  • What if my teeth are chipped, yellowed, damaged, or discolored?
    If your teeth are cracked, stained, uneven or chipped, veneers may be your best option. These thin, porcelain shells are custom-designed to perfectly cover and match your natural smile to mask most any dental blemish, including stains and cracks. Compared to many treatment options, veneers will last a long time, up to 20 years, and correct the alignment of your smile by covering damaged or misshapen teeth. If your teeth are yellowed and stained, we offer in-office bleaching with special gel and lighting that takes approximately 30 minutes. We can also provide you with trays so you can continue the bleaching process at home.
  • How do I use my insurance?
    All dental insurance plans are unique. Your insurance company reimburses a set amount for each service. We are happy to work with your insurance and give you an estimate of out-of-pocket expenses upon request. See our insurance page for accepted plans.
  • What if I don't have insurance?
    We strive to keep our services affordable to our community. Please contact us for a service estimate.
  • What payment types do you accept?
    We accept credit, debit, cash, or check for payment.
