Frequently Asked Questions


How far in advance do I need to request an appointment?

The farther you schedule in advance the better. However, we do our best to see our patients as soon as we are able and can typically see you within a week of your request. We do accept walk-ins, but highly recommend scheduling an appointment in advance.

What if I have an emergency?

If you experience a dental emergency, please notify us immediately by calling our office number. Please note that we do accept calls after our regular business hours. If you reach our voicemail, please leave a message as voicemail is checked regularly. We do our best to see emergency patients within 24 hours of the initial report. In case of a medical emergency, please call 911.

I just want a cleaning; do I need an exam?

For a patient to receive a cleaning, he or she must have completed an exam performed by our dentist within the previous six months. If you are not an established “patient of record” and have never seen one of our dentists, then an exam is required prior to a cleaning.

How do I schedule an appointment?

Scheduling an appointment is easy! Find your nearest Campus Smiles and contact them by phone/email/online booking form.

How do I cancel an appointment?

Cancellation must be done 48 business hours before the appointment time. Please call our office if you need assistance during business hours.

Does the dental office accept insurance?

Yes, we accept all major PPO insurance plans. At this time, unfortunately, we are unable to accept Dental HMOs. If you have questions or are unsure about whether we take your insurance, please call the office and we will be happy to assist you.

If I don't have dental insurance, can I still visit the office?

Absolutely! Individuals without insurance are welcome to use our office. Our team is able to provide significant discounts to those without insurance. We've partnered with BrightBenefits to offer an exclusively affordable insurance plan that covers many of our services with $0 out-of-pocket visits, once the annual premium is paid. We also offer several payment plans, including Care Credit.

How much is my first visit without insurance?

If you do not have dental insurance, do not worry! We recommend for those without insurance enroll in our preferred exclusive plan, BrightSmile for Students, where your first visit is 100% covered once the annual premium is paid. With this plan, you have $0 out-of-pocket costs with each dental visit*. Without insurance or the BrightSmile plan, the first visit will cost around ~$345.

*Up to $2,000 annual maximum, as allowed by the policy.

How much does it cost for a filling? Root canal? Crown? Implant?

It depends on the depth of the decay, which is diagnosed at the first visit exam by our dentist. Every case is different, therefore we cannot give a fixed fee. However, if you're enrolled in the exclusive BrightSmile for Students plan, these services will be covered* and 200+ more.

*Up to $2,000 annual maximum, as allowed by the policy.

How much is a bridge?

If you are a new patient, we would have to do an oral exam by our dentist and take x-rays of your mouth in our office first. Every patient is different, including their bridge, therefore we cannot give a fixed fee. However, if you're enrolled in the exclusive BrightSmile for Students plan, this service will be 100% covered* and 200+ more. Please call the office to receive more details.

*Up to $2,000 annual maximum, as allowed by the policy.

How much is invisalign?

Please visit our page dedicated to Invisalign. The cost of Invisalign treatment varies if you have dental insurance that generally covers some orthodontic services. The BrightSmile for Students dental insurance plan does not cover Invisalign. We do offer financing through CareCredit® and Lending Club® and more. Please contact the office for more details.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards, cash, and checks.
