Our services include:
^ We do not provide diagnosis of restorability of teeth because it is beyond our scope of specialization, which is limited to endodontics. If a patient is referred to us, responsibilities for diagnosis of restorability and restoration of teeth lie with the referring doctor/office.
We will be happy to help your patients.

The fee for root canal treatments and other endodontic procedures depend on their complexity and is determined at the time of consultation. The procedures, which require negotiation of blocked/calcified canals, access through the crown, treatment of swelling, use of nitrous oxide sedation, and other complications are at additional cost, so please encourage patients to come as soon as possible.
We will provide your patients with gentle care, and we do also understand that patients' financial situations differ and offer various payment methods including monthly payments*.
We do take most PPO plans (both in-and-out-of-network) as well as Self-Insured, Direct-Reimbursement , some EPO (if in-network) plans, and many Discount programs.
We also take many Medicare (both in-and-out-of-network), and
(on limited basis) Medicaid Husky (for patients age 10-20 only).
We do take some DHMO/DMO plans as out-of-network.
Yes, we do offer third-party financial plans*, for which patients can apply at the office or at home.
We accept CareCredit and Lending Club plans.
We would appreciate if they bring with them:
A government-issued ID, referral letter (which may be our business card with referral information on the back), any radiographs , list of medications taken/medical conditions, and forms of payment such a credit card. They would also need to provide their social security number, date of birth, and address (as well as of a parent/legal guardian for minors) .
When a patient is under the age of 18 or requires a legal guardian, a parent or legal guardian must be present.
For a patient with a dental plan, they should have dental plan card in possession as well as name, social security, date of birth, address, and place of work of the subscriber (which may be them).
You can utilize our referral form, the back of our business card, or your own form to refer- just write patient's name, tooth number, doctor's name, phone, comments, and whether you want any additional services (post space, core, post-core - can be checked; others - write in comments). Additional services will be done whenever possible as long as patients can pay for them (and their dental plan allows).

It is up to you. We can mail or e-mail the report to the address of your choice. It contains pre-op and post-op radiographs as well information on procedures performed.
Although, usually, either way we send the report same day, the e-mail is usually delivered sooner and comes with radiographs in convenient .JPG format. Important: the e-mail from where the reports are sent is not for replies.
Yes, we do on it on limited bases.
It is understandable that there is anxiety associated with root canals thanks to movies, TV, past history, and friends' "advice". We provide specialty dental anesthesia and kind individualized care to ensure patients comfort.
We offer nitrous oxide (when there are no medical contraindications) for the beginning of a treatment at additional cost to the patient.
At no cost to the patient, we place sterile cotton and pink Cavit; at your request and in some cases of shallow pulp chamber, we place just pink Cavit all the way to canal orifices.
We can also, if you ask, place harder glass-ionomer material (ex: Fuji IX) all the way or on top of Cavit; there will be extra cost to the patient for harder restoration
We can create a post space at your request as long as a patient is willing to pay for it or/and their dental plan allows.
When there is a non-temporary crown on a tooth, we assess the situation on a case-by-case basis. If it is good-fitting and underlying canals well-visible, we generally can access through it. In certain cases, such as when there is a significant decay underneath, canals poorly visible, fracture suspicion, etc., we may have to remove the crown; a new crown will then have to be fabricated. In rare instances, crowns can fracture during access, which may /may not be repairable.
When, there is a temporary crown on the tooth, we usually lift it, work on the tooth, and then place it back. In certain circumstances, we may unable to place it back due to inability to fit it back after underlying decay or tooth structure removal or dental plan restrictions; the crown will then be given to the patient for safe-keeping and you may re-cement it after adjustments. In rare instances, temporary crowns can fracture during lifting, which may /may not be repairable.
Although, many procedures can be done in one visit of 1-3 hour duration and on the day of initial consult,; the number of visits depends on complexity of the case, pulpal diagnosis, number of teeth to treat, and sometime dental plan requirements (such as need to wait for pre-approval/authorization).
Certain teeth with apical periodontitis, abscess, calcified/blocked canals, most of re-treatments, apexifications, most of regenerative therapy cases, whenever dental plan requires pre-approval (unless the patient is prepaying /plan permitting/), and other situations may require additional visits at extra cost.
