We’d like to thank you in advance for considering Dr. Moulton and his team for all your dental needs. Our office looks forward to bringing you the highest quality dentistry possible in a comfortable and modern office. We’ve received many questions over the years not only about our practice, but regarding dentistry in general. If you have a question, feel free to refer to our FAQ section ahead of your appointment. If you have other concerns, you can call us directly to mention it during your first visit with us.
How do I get emergency dental care?
You’ll want to start off by calling the dental office directly, rather than emailing them. By doing so, you’ll be able to speak with a team member directly and get the help you need. Of course, you should go to the emergency room or call 911 first if you believe your emergency is life-threatening. Keep in mind that dental emergencies are generally best handled by a dentist, rather than a hospital ER as they don’t typically have a dentist on staff to address the source of your symptoms. In most cases, you should be able to get an appointment scheduled at our office the same day that you call. It’s worth noting that dental emergencies are generally a sign of a bigger dental issue, so avoid putting it off if pain or similar symptoms appear.
How do I find the best place to get dental work done?
Start thinking about what type of dental services you value most and what you expect to get done when you visit. For example, if you intend to visit the dentist for routine checkups or cleanings, you’ll have far more options available to you in comparison to needing a dentist that provides a specific service. You’ll also want to factor in your other preferences, including distance from your home or work, payment options, hours of operation, and specific credentials you’d like the dentist to have. It helps to visit the practice in person to get a better feel for the office. Taking the time to meet the dentist and some of the team members can also prove quite helpful, especially if you’re looking for a dentist for your entire family. Our team always prioritizes time towards getting to know you personally, not just your dental needs. This is only further exemplified by our many positive online reviews.
What do you do if you can't afford a dentist?
Prevention is key in dentistry. Not only is preventive care relatively affordable, but it helps you avoid the need for restorative or emergency services to treat major dental problems. These services also tend to be more expensive on average, meaning you’re more likely to pay less on dentistry in the long-term by taking care of your smile now. If you have dental insurance, which Moulton Dentistry accepts, it’s a good idea to make the most of it while you have access. We also offer an in-house membership plan if you’d prefer to avoid dental insurance.
How much does a dental check-up & cleaning cost in Hoover?
The average cost of a dental checkup and cleaning really depends on where you’re receiving care as well as the current state of your oral health. During a checkup, you can expect a detailed exam, X-rays, oral cancer screening and professional cleaning. These visits can run between $200 and $350, but having dental insurance can help you cover most out-of-pocket costs.
