Kind Words From Our Neighboring Patients

I had an amazing experience at my new dental office! First impression was how beautiful and accommodating the office was. The comfortable leather furniture with the bling lighting and video games for the kiddos plus movies on several big screens. I was blown away. Then the staff just put the icing on the cake. They were all nice, professional and very detailed about the services my daughter and I would be receiving as well as doctor's recommendations. I am so happy that I found a dental office that serves my family's needs and I highly recommend Avion dental services. A-Plus!!!

You Asked, We’ve Answered!

Are you interested in upgrading your smile or replacing missing teeth? Want to find an orthodontist near Farmers Branch to help straighten your pearly whites? While the best way to speak with us is through a phone call, we understand some people like to research on their own time or simply have busy schedules. That’s why our team at Avion Dental Dallas has compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions we get from our patients. Read on or give us a call if you don’t see the information you’re looking for!

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

Firstly, notify our team right away if you think you need emergency dental care. One of our team members should be able to direct you on your best preventive measures before arriving at our office. If not, our voicemail should provide useful information on who to contact. Of course, if you’re experiencing a more serious or life-threatening condition, such as a broken jaw or difficulty breathing, call 911 immediately. Your local ER won’t be able to handle dental emergencies, but they can at least alleviate discomfort and bleeding until you can get treated. Our office offers same-day emergency care as well as Saturday hours, so you can expect to get the necessary treatment when you need it.

How Much Does It Cost to Get a Tooth Pulled Without Insurance?

The cost of tooth extractions will vary based on factors like geography and the patient’s dental health. That said, the average price for removing a tooth in the United States is typically around $150 and $400. The exact cost could change depending on certain things, including the complexity of your situation, any sedation dentistry received, or any additional procedures before/after the extraction. Wisdom teeth removals tend to be more expensive and generally need specialized services from an oral surgeon to complete them. If you have insurance, your dentist may be able to negotiate the fees for your procedure with your provider.

How Can I Find a Female Dentist?

Nearly 1/3 rd of all dentists in the United States are female. Furthermore, more than half of all who are currently studying in dental school are female. If you wish to know where you can receive care from a female dentist, feel free to start with a simple Google search. Type in female dentist near me and you should receive fairly accurate and useful information on the percentage of any segment of dentists. On our website, you can find the “Meet the Dentists” section to easily learn everything you need about our dedicated and experienced professionals.

What Level of Education Is Required to Be a Dentist?

Every dentist working in the United States must attain their Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) from one of the 67 Accredited dental schools in the country. To get into these universities, a person will need to have a bachelor's degree (and typically high grades in mostly math and science courses). Dental school usually involves 3 years with a combination of hands-on training and classroom learning. Many dentists seek additional training by earning 1 of 12 specializations that are recognized by the American Dental Association. These courses usually include an additional 3 or more years of “dental school.” Even after graduating, all dentists are required to complete a certain number of continuing education hours to maintain their license.
