We understand if you want to address any questions or concerns you may have about our practice before you
finalize an appointment. That’s why, for your convenience, we have included a handful of the most common
questions we hear from those learning about Beacon Dentistry for the very first time! Detailed answers from our
dentists can be found below, so feel free to take a look or call us directly to get more information.
How do I find the best place to get dental work done?
We recommend that you first confirm what your specific dental needs are and whether or not that practice can
effectively meet them. Do you want to prioritize your budget or find a dentist that’s close by? Are
there certain services you know you want outside of your routine checkups and cleanings? Do you want
cosmetic work or dental implants to be an available option at your go-to practice? We encourage you to give
us a call so you can visit the office in-person as well. Feel free to read our many patient reviews and
doctor bios to get additional insight!
What is the best way to find a dentist who does dental implants?
Assuming the dentists you’re looking at provides dental implants, you’ll want to do your homework
on their background before you set up an appointment. For one, many dentists only do one phase of treatment
(the restorative phase) rather than the entire treatment in one place (which includes implant placement as
well). Dr. Johannsen, our dedicated dental implant expert, has advanced training in implant dentistry and
restorative dentistry, making him the perfect fit for someone looking to replace teeth. No matter how
complex your needs are, he’s got the clinical experience to make your smile complete!
What do you do if you can't afford a dentist?
Beacon Dentistry always makes prevention a priority, meaning we work to ensure patients get the routine
preventive care they need to avoid dental problems in the first place. Not only does this work to avoid
unnecessary stress and discomfort, but it helps you save money as well. With that said, we understand if you
have a tight budget. Even if you don’t have dental insurance to use, we offer other financing options
in-house. This includes our Beacon Dentistry Savings Plan, which helps you complete your most important
dental services at an affordable rate.
