Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about Glow Family Dental or your dental care in general? If so, then we’re happy to provide the answers you need! Below, we’ve compiled some of the most common questions our team receives every day. If you have a question that hasn’t been touched on here, be sure to give us a call and ask! We’re always happy to talk to you and make sure you have all the information you need to take great care of your smile.

How often should I go to the dentist?

Dr. Martinez recommends that patients of all ages should receive a dental checkup and cleaning at least twice a year. These appointments enable him to catch and treat minor problems before they can become bigger later on, plus they can go a long way in preventing tooth decay and gum disease from developing in the first place!

Can I bring my child to Glow Family Dental?

Yes! We’re happy to treat every member of your family, including any little smiles you might have at home. Our office is extremely child-friendly, so we know how to keep younger patients completely comfortable while we provide the age-appropriate services their growing smiles need. From toddlers to teenagers and everyone in between, your child will always be welcome to our office!

I think I might have a cavity. What should I do?

If you’ve noticed any dark spots on a tooth or are experiencing a minor toothache, then you should give Glow Family Dental a call. You won’t be able to do anything about a cavity at home, and it will only get worse over time. Fortunately, we can take care of it right away with a tooth-colored filling or custom-made crown, making it practically disappear in just one or two appointments!

How should I replace my missing teeth?

While this answer is different for every patient, our first recommendation is usually dental implants. Why? Because they are the only treatment that replaces both the root and crown of a tooth, creating something that is the next best thing to nature. They look just like real teeth, and they’re extremely durable as well, often able to last for 30 years or more (which is way longer than other traditional options). Want to know if you’re a good candidate for this treatment? Give us a call today to find out!

Will you accept my dental insurance?

Yes, Glow Family Dental is happy to accept all dental insurance plans no matter the provider. We’ll help you go over your benefits so you know exactly what is and isn’t covered, and we’ll even handle your claims for you so we can make sure we’re always maximizing your coverage. To learn how we can use your specific plan to help you save, contact us today.

I don’t have dental insurance…is there another way I can save on my care?

Yes! You can sign up for our Kleer Membership Plan. For less than traditional dental insurance, you can cover your entire dental care for the entire year and receive a 15% discount on all other treatments. Basically, you can get the same benefits of dental insurance without having to deal with any annoying deductibles, claim forms, or annual maximums.
