Frequently Asked Questions
Can you help me understand my dental coverage?
Yes, our administrative team is very knowledgeable on all things insurance. We can see what your insurance covers and help you figure out how to maximize the coverage available to you.
How often should I see my dentist?
We recommend a cleaning every 6 months if possible but a full checkup every 12 months. This allows us to keep on top of any trouble spots before they become bigger issues.
A trip to the dentist makes me very nervous, what can I expect at a checkup?
Don’t be nervous, we have your utmost comfort in mind in anything we do with our patients. We will start by asking you a few questions, catching up on anything that is happening or has changed regarding your health. Then, we will ask to take a peek inside and inspect your teeth and gums. Don’t worry, we don’t do anything without explaining ourselves first, and we can talk through what exactly to expect if we require X-rays or further appointments to fix anything.
At what age should I start bringing my kids to the dentist?
At Saskatoon Dental Group we like to see your little ones for their first visit about 6 months after you see their first tooth has popped up OR by the time they turn 1.
