Animated tree Frequently Asked Questions

Whether it’s time for your six-month checkup and cleaning, you are interested in a cosmetic treatment, or you need emergency care, it’s understandable that you have questions. Fortunately, our team at Heck Family Dentistry is here to help! Below you will find the answers to the questions we are asked most often. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to contact us so our knowledgeable staff can assist.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

Dental emergencies can happen at a moment’s notice and be particularly anxiety-inducing. If your injury results in life-threatening conditions, like a broken jawbone or difficulty breathing, then call 911 immediately. However, if you need urgent care to alleviate pain, stop oral bleeding, or save your tooth, then your first call should be to our practice. After all, most ER’s do not have a dental professional on staff. Plus, our team can provide you with first-aid instructions over the phone (if needed) and schedule a same-day appointment to get you the fast, effective treatment you need.

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

Since there is no room for error when it comes to your smile, it’s important to find an experienced, trustworthy dentist. But with page after page of options on Google when you search “dentist near me,” it can be difficult to know which one is best for you. If this sounds all too familiar, then you can help streamline the process by first focusing on what is most important to you. A provider who welcomes your insurance? A practice with a highly experienced team? One who offers sedation dentistry to help with your dental-related anxiety? Our practice is proud to offer all these features combined with world-class dental care that is second to none. But don’t just take our word for it! Take a look at our patient reviews, doctors’ bios, and philosophy of care.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup & Cleaning Cost in Lawrence?

The cost of preventive services, like checkups and cleanings, varies depending on a number of factors, including geography. However, the average in the U.S. is between $200 and $350 without dental insurance. If you do have an individual dental plan or one through your employer, then the cost may be covered entirely by your carrier. On the other hand, if you don’t have dental insurance, you can opt for low-to-no interest dental financing. That way, the cost doesn’t stop you from getting the dental care you need.

How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with a Dentist?

Whether an accidental elbow knocks out your front tooth or a once dull toothache becomes extremely painful, we are here to help! By calling our office, we can better understand your situation, guide you through the next best steps, and schedule a same-day appointment with Dr. Beshore or Dr. Heck. From there, we can eliminate the cause of any pain, treat the root of the issue, and provide you with the best care as quickly as possible.

Animated tree Paying for great dentistry
shouldn’t be stressful!

Affordability is extremely important to us, which is why we’re in-network with multiple major dental insurance plans, including Delta Dental Premier and BlueCross/BlueShield. We also offer flexible, low-to-no interest financing through CareCredit and complimentary smile consultations to make the cost of complex treatment plans or cosmetic dentistry easy to manage. Plus, we make the process even more convenient with online payments! Whatever you need to smile with confidence, you can trust that your smile and your wallet are in good hands.
