If you are uncomfortable with your smile due to tooth stains and yellowing, a fast and easy solution is to brighten your new smile with our in-house tooth whitening system that whitens your teeth with reduced sensitivity.
Or take home custom whitening trays to give your smile a boost in the convenience of your home! We won’t keep you from drinking coffee or berries so keep in mind that teeth whitening requires maintenance & touch-ups periodically in order to maintain optimum results.
How do I schedule an appointment?
What should I expect on my first dental visit?
Expect to be treated like family. Your visit will begin in the comfort of your own home. We’ll send you patient intake forms that can be completed quickly and easily before your in-office visit. Your insurance benefits will be checked before your visit so you will know how much your insurance will cover prior to starting any treatment.
When you arrive at our office, a member of our Floss team will take a series of digital X-rays and intraoral photos. This will be followed by a comprehensive exam and smile assessment where you can meet our doctor, discuss any concerns, and review your personalized treatment plan. Time permitting, a comprehensive professional dental cleaning will also be completed.
What should I expect on my first orthodontic visit?
Your complimentary orthodontic evaluation will consist of orthodontic digital x-rays, a digital scan of your teeth with our iTero intraoral scanner followed by a thorough evaluation of your smile, teeth, jaws and bite by our board-certified orthodontist.
He will review your individualized treatment plan and which type of braces or aligners are best for you, and answer any questions you have about your treatment.
Your insurance coverage and financial investment will then be reviewed with you and we will do our best to find a financial option that best fits within your budget.
If our orthodontist sees that you or your child are ready for treatment and you would like to get started, we also reserve time to begin your orthodontic treatment that day to save you an extra visit.
Do you guys see kids?
We are all about family! We see kids as young as 6 months of age (typically when they have their first tooth!).
Our goal is to make visits to the office fun and inviting so that kids can feel comfortable and actually look forward to seeing their dentist.
Prevention is the key but occasionally their treatment may indicate the need for a specialist. In that case, a child may be referred to one of our local pediatric specialists.
I am a super anxious patient when it comes to dentists… how can you help?
We do our best to create a warm and casual environment that’s free from pressure. We will have one of our amazing Floss team members guide you through your visit and answer any questions that you might have with kindness and compassion.
To help ease your experience, we can offer amenities such as beverages, a cozy blanket, Netflix with noise-cancelling headphones. For higher anxiety levels, we are also licensed to safely administer Nitrous Oxide (ie. Laughing Gas) or we can prescribe an anxiolytic to help you through your treatment.
But most of all, your dentist and team will listen and take care of you like family… and we love our family! 😊
Do you take my insurance?
We take most PPO insurances and are happy to assist in checking eligibility with your specific dental plan as well as obtain a complete breakdown of your insurance prior your dental visit.
At my last dental office it seemed like I was seeing a different doctor every time, will I be seeing the same doctor here?
Flossophie Dental + Ortho is family owned and operated. You will be seen by the same dentist and by the same orthodontist each and every time you come. That’s how we’ve become your friendly neighborhood dentists!
I’m kind of a germaphobe, how do you guys maintain your office?
We take our office infection control very seriously.
We follow recommendations by several federal agencies including the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
We provide hospital-grade disinfection and sterilization on all surfaces and dental equipment and we dispose of any materials that cannot be sterilized. Proper personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks are used by every member of our team.
We also use air filtration within the treatment rooms to help clean and remove aerosols in the air. And only distilled or reverse osmosis water is used in the water lines of our treatment rooms. Our air and water lines are flushed on a routine basis. None of that yucky city water is used during treatment.
What age is good for me or my child to start orthodontic treatment?
Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. Regardless of age, patients can look forward to teeth that not only look better, but work better, too.
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children get a check-up with an orthodontist at the first recognition of the existence of an orthodontic problem, but no later than age 7.
Few patients will need to begin treatment that young, but there are some who will benefit from early intervention. Early treatment may be necessary to more easily correct orthodontic problems, oftentimes avoiding surgery, extractions and additional complications.
Ortho consultations are free and without obligation. If you would like to be you or your child’s teeth evaluated by our orthodontist, we would be more than happy to schedule an appointment with you.
If I am in braces now, do I still need dental checkups every 6 months?
Absolutely! In fact, it is even more important that you see your dentist for regular dental checkups and cleanings while you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Whether you are in braces or clear aligners, you will find more food and plaque trapped around your braces or attachments which can lead to cavities and gum disease.
As part of our Floss Family, we are invested in helping you and your child develop good oral hygiene habits, and make good dietary choices to keep your gums and teeth clean and healthy!
We will work closely with your dentist to maintain optimum oral health and make sure that your orthodontic and dental appointments are carefully coordinated.
Is Dr. Bennet an orthodontic specialist or is he a general dentist who does orthodontics?
After dental school, Dr. Bennet spent an additional 3 years in a specialty Master’s program to become an orthodontic specialist.
He is also a Board Certified Orthodontist with the American Board of Orthodontics (a prestige that is only awarded to 1 in 3 Orthodontist in the U.S.) and a Fellow with the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.
What makes our office special is that Dr Bennet will be the only Orthodontist the patient will see and he will follow through from start to finish until you or your child completes their smile journey. This consistency helps your treatment run smoothly and finish on time. Maybe even finish early!
