Dear patients.

We are happy to say that we are now open and operating under our full schedule.

COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care, and we deeply appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to help control the spread of the coronavirus.

Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we opened with carefully planned and revised office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members. Our own families are also patients here, so you can be assured that we’ll be taking care of you just as well as we’ll be taking care of them.

For your peace of mind, the measures we are taking to provide a safe dental treatment experience include, but are not limited to, the following:

Upon Your Arrival at the Office

●     Patients will be screened BEFORE treatment and temperatures will be checked. Any patients showing signs of a fever or other symptoms of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

●     ONLY patients will be allowed entry into the office. Parents and other family members will be asked to wait outside whenever possible.

●     Patients are asked to wait in their cars or outside the office until their scheduled appointment time.

●     The waiting area chairs will be spaced apart to allow for 6 feet of distancing.

●     We will ask that you continue to practice social distancing measures in common areas of the office, including the front desk.

●     The front door and the door between the waiting area and operatories will be propped open all day.

●     There will be no physical contact with patients with the exception of treatment.

During Treatment

●     All rooms will be COMPLETELY sterilized before each patient is seated, and public areas, including restrooms, will be cleaned and sterilized frequently throughout the day.

●     All operatories have high-volume air filtration and we have installed a whole office purification system. This system will kill the Covid virus along with other contaminates

●     Our team will STRICTLY follow guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA, and ADA in regards to personal protective equipment (PPE) and office sterilization.

●     During patient care, goggles or face shields will be worn by everyone and changed between patients.

●     All surfaces that came in contact with the patient will be wiped with disinfectant including the patient chair.

Checking Out After Your Appointment

●    We will be requesting prepayments when we know the amount of payment which will expidite your visit 

●     All efforts will be made to complete scheduling in the back of the office so you can leave without stopping at the front desk

We are proceeding with an abundance of caution, but we want you to feel as confident as we do that any visit you make to our office will be a safe one.

We also realize that many of you have been impacted financially during this outbreak, and we have solutions to keep dental care affordable for you and your family.

To discuss these payment options, schedule an appointment, or ask us any questions you may have about your next visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 757-473-8482

We look forward to seeing you soon!

How Much Will a Smile Makeover Cost? By drparr on September 06, 2019

Smile before and after cosmetic dentistry treatmentThe experienced dental team at the Smile Center can address a multitude of cosmetic blemishes at once with smile makeover treatment. A smile makeover combines cosmetic dentistry procedures to enhance the appearance of the teeth and gums so that patients get to enjoy the beautiful smile they have always desired.

When considering smile makeover treatment, patients understandably have questions about what it will cost. Here we go over some of the factors that affect smile makeover cost, and how it can be a cost-effective solution for our Virginia Beach, VA, patients.

Calculating Smile Makeover Costs

Smile makeover treatment is not like an item that is purchased at the store with a set price tag. Every smile makeover procedure is customized to meet the unique needs of our patients. While one patient may be able to get the results he or she desires through a smile makeover that combines teeth whitening and a dental crown, another patient may benefit from dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and gum reshaping. The point is that it is not possible to price smile makeover treatment without knowing exactly what treatment will entail.

The only way to get an accurate cost estimate for smile makeover treatment is through a personal consultation at our Virginia Beach practice. Our dentists will examine the health and aesthetics of the smile, listen to each patient’s concerns and desires, and make recommendations for cosmetic dentistry services that can make those desires a reality.

When calculating smile makeover costs, our dentists will consider factors such as:

  • How many treatments will be included in the smile makeover procedure
  • The extent of the work that is needed
  • The number of dental visits that are likely to be required
  • The expense of dental materials that will be used throughout treatment.

Will Dental Insurance Cover a Smile Makeover?

Smile makeover treatment is primarily a cosmetic service, and most dental insurance providers do not cover cosmetic treatment. However, depending on the patient’s needs, a smile makeover may include some restorative dentistry treatments as well.

If parts of the smile makeover plan are necessary to improve a patient’s oral health, dental benefits may apply. Our dental team can look into patients’ dental insurance coverage to determine if they are eligible for any benefits and, if so, what out-of-pocket expenses they can expect for treatment.

Cost Benefits of a Smile Makeover

Smile makeover treatment combines one or more dental procedures to give patients the brighter, whiter, straighter teeth they desire. There are cost benefits to smile makeover treatment.

By creating a single dental treatment plan that addresses a multitude of dental concerns at once, patients save themselves the time and cost of returning to the dentist numerous times to address each unique issue. Patients can expect smile makeover treatment to cost significantly less than the combined cost of all the individual procedures that are included in their makeover treatment.
