Frequently Asked Questions
Are you currently seeing new patients?
At Legacy Dental Group, we never say “no” to nice, friendly people who want to better their smile! We try to schedule first appointments within a week of your initial call, and if you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency, our doctors will do everything in their power to see your case that very day. Our office is open for appointments from Monday to Friday.
Do you take my dental insurance?
Our Canton, TX practice is an in-network provider for several dental plans. If your plan doesn’t list our practice as a viable option, contact your insurance provider to determine the particulars when it comes to seeing an out-of-network dentist. We will be happy to fill out any needed insurance forms to ensure proper reimbursement.
I don’t have dental insurance. Can you help me?
The status of your finances won’t affect your diagnosis or the quality of care you receive here at Legacy Dental Group. However, it may limit the services that are available to you. Our team will work with you to determine the best course of action that fits within your budget while still creating stellar results, and financing through CareCredit is also available to help make the cost of dental work much more affordable.
How do I apply for CareCredit?
CareCredit offers patients and families a personal line of credit that can be used for any healthcare expenses that arise, including elective procedures and even veterinary costs. Better yet, there are multiple payment options available for added flexibility, including 12 months with no interest all the way to multiple years with a low interest rate. Follow this link to be taken directly to the CareCredit website, where you can apply right away. Our practice’s information will already be entered for even more convenience!
Is electronic communication available?
Once you’ve given our practice your e-mail address and cellphone number, patients will be able to handle several important tasks easily through e-mail or texting, including scheduling an appointment, receiving appointment reminders, confirming appointment times, and leaving reviews about your dental care experience.
What’s the best way to prepare my child for his or her first dental appointment?
A first trip to the dentist should always be a happy and enjoyable experience for your little one! Our biggest tip for helping make this happen is to stay positive with children when it comes to discussing their special visit and avoid the use of potentially scary words like needle, drill, or pain.
What will my child’s first dental appointment at Legacy Dental Group be like?
Many children struggle at the dentist’s office because of the unfamiliarity of their settings. Our Legacy Dental Group team works hard to reduce that fear of the unknown, providing clear, easy-to-understand explanations for what we do and how we’ll do it. During the first appointment, we’ll count their existing teeth, capture some simple photographs, and potentially provide a gentle, refreshing cleaning. Once you and your child are ready to leave our office, we’ll provide them with some fun toy prizes that are sure to make them smile on the way home.
The thought of dental care makes me nervous. Do you offer sedation?
We offer several enjoyable amenities that can provide patients with quality distraction during their treatment, including pre-loaded iPods and TVs. If more significant measures are needed, sedation dentistry is also available!
Does your practice offer cosmetic dentistry services?
Definitely! Whatever your smile goals are, our doctors and staff members enjoy being able to help you achieve them through quality, comprehensive treatment options. Several services are available for making your teeth stand out in the best way possible, including tooth-colored fillings, metal-free restorations, porcelain veneers, and much more.
Do you offer teeth whitening treatment?
Several whitening methods are available at our practice, including in-office care and customized whitening kits. During your initial appointment, our team can help you determine which option fits your personal needs best.
Do you have a Facebook?
Of course! Our team loves communicating with patients through the power of social media, providing fun updates, pictures, and even contests. Visit our page today and leave us a like, if you haven’t already!
