Frequently Asked Questions

Do I or someone in my family have to be in the military to visit your office?

No. We also accept civilian patients!

I don’t have insurance with any of the companies you are listed with as a dental healthcare provider. Will you still submit a claim for me for services you provide? And will my insurance provider honor that claim?

We can file to any dental insurance. We ask that you call them and make sure you can go to a dentist of your choice or if you have a list that you should be choosing a dentist from….just to be on the safe side.

I only visit a dentist when I have a problem. Would you still take me as a patient?

Yes, we will definitely take good care of you. We will let you know that regular dental checkups are important as we can try to catch any issues before they become a serious problem.

I don’t have dental insurance. Can I still see you for my dental healthcare?

Yes, we will still see you if you do not have dental insurance. We offer a 5% discount on cash or check payments the same day of service. We accept VISA/MASTERCARD and we do have options for payment plans.

How quickly can I get in for an appointment?

We do our best at trying to schedule you as soon as possible. It just depends on your schedule.

I just need my teeth cleaned. Do I have to be registered as a patient of yours to have this done?


At what age should my child first see a dentist?

The American Dental Association recommends that children have their first dental visit at one year of age.

I’m told I need a crown. Do you give price quotes over the phone?

Yes, we do quote prices over the phone for standard treatment. However, if additional treatment is required there could be additional charges.

Lately when I brush my teeth I’ve noticed that I am bleeding. Should I be concerned, or will this go away?

In many instances, swollen and bleeding gums are a sign of gum disease. However, there are a number of other things that could be causing you gum problems. It would be best to schedule an appointment with us to determine the cause of the bleeding, and proper treatment that may be required.

“What our patients are saying”

I would like to let you know how much I appreciate the beautiful work Dr. Nguyen did on my teeth today.  I had broken my teeth yesterday.  This morning I went to your center to make an appointment.  You office was kind enough to schedule me for the same day at 2 pm.  I was relieved because I was leaving on vacation in one week.  I am grateful for the extra care, the professional attitude of your staff and sensitivity to my predicament. I hope you will relay my heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Nguyen for giving me my smile back.

Dr. Chen and Nichole were excellent.  Very fast and comforting.  I was very nervous and they made me feel very relaxed and secure!
