Questions to Ask Your Dentist in Fredericksburg, VA

A diverse group of people hold big red question marks thinking about questions to ask their dentist

During your routine appointments at North River Dental Care, your hygienist will clean your teeth and Dr. Bailey will check the health of your teeth and gums. This is a great time to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about your oral healthcare. Here are some questions you could consider asking!

What Are My Payment Options?

Before getting any treatments at the dentist, you’ll want to know the acceptable payment methods. Does the office take your insurance plan? If you don’t have insurance, third-party financing like CareCredit helps spread out the cost into manageable payments over time. At North River Dental Care, we also offer an in-house savings plan. The membership fee covers preventive care and provides discounts on other dental treatments.

How Can I Improve My Oral Hygiene Routine?

While your hygienist deep cleans your teeth every six months, you’re the one most responsible for keeping your smile clean and healthy in the meantime. Based on what we see when cleaning and assessing your teeth and gums, we can let you know which areas of your mouth could use some extra attention. Be open to improving your at-home care with more frequent brushing and flossing and a healthier diet. We'll also recommend avoiding tobacco.

What Dental Treatments Do I Need?

If you have any dental disease, we will recommend the appropriate treatment to get your oral health back on track, whether that be a natural-looking filling for a cavity or root canal therapy to resolve an infection. Let us know if you want more information about how our other services can improve the function and appearance of your smile. We offer teeth whitening, veneers, nightguards, sealants, tooth replacements, and more!

How Do I Keep My Teeth White?

At North River Dental Care, we offer professional whitening and custom veneers, but we can also talk to you about how to reduce staining. If you smoke, quitting will make a difference. Limiting wine and coffee can also help.
