Q: What can I expect on my first visit?
A: At Campus Dentists, we know the importance of having a thorough understanding of your dental problems and needs on your first visit. This enables us to develop the most effective and efficient treatment plan for you. The moment you walk into our clinic, you’ll feel at ease in our warm, friendly, and soothing environment. Besides English, our staff can speak a wide range of other languages, including Farsi, Mandarin. Cantonese, Tagalog, and Punjabi.
The dentist assigned to you will ask you a number of questions to get a clearer insight into your dental health and needs. Then, you’ll have to undergo an intraoral scan. An intraoral camera is a handheld device that allows you to see the condition of your teeth, including broken fillings, cracks, misalignments, and gum problems. After the intraoral scan, the dentist will clearly explain the dental problems you’re experiencing and the treatment options available. This can help you make a well-informed decision. With intraoral scanning, we can detect and fix minor issues before they develop into severe problems.
Depending on the type of treatment you need, you may have to undergo cone-beam computed technology (CBCT) scanning or a digital x-ray. A CBCT scan enables our dentist to analyze osseous pathology and tooth-and-bone relationships and identify the locations of impacted teeth. A digital x-ray, on the other hand, is performed to give you a clear idea of your oral health and identify dental problems such as tooth decay, cavities, and impacted teeth. Compared to a conventional x-ray, this type of x-ray exposes you to up to 90% less radiation.
Once you have decided on the treatment method, our dentist may perform your preferred procedure on the same day or another day. Dental procedures can be nerve-wracking, but we try our best to deliver a pleasant dental experience by creating a calming environment and following comfort-focused dental practices. We conform to the highest standards of dental hygiene and commit ourselves to provide metal-free solutions. After treatment, our dentist will offer advice on how to properly care for your teeth to minimize dental problems. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to find out more about our dental experience.
Q: How do I pay for my dental treatment?
A: At Campus Dentists, we strive to make quality dental services accessible to people from all walks of life by offering highly competitive prices. Additionally, we make payments flexible and convenient with our wide range of payment methods, including credit cards, debit cards, cash, and cheques. You’re required to fully pay your portion of any dental treatment at the end of each visit.
If you have dental insurance coverage, you can simplify your payment process by choosing our direct billing option. With direct billing, you only need to pay the difference between your dental bill and your insurance coverage. This payment option is available to patients with all types of insurance plans. Also, we offer a 20% discount to all UBC students.
Q: Should I return to your clinic after my first visit?
A: After your first visit, it’s advisable that you return to Campus Dentists for a dental checkup or teeth cleaning at least once every six months. If you’re at a higher risk of dental disease, you may have to visit us more often. Regular checkups and teeth cleaning can help you avoid major teeth problems, which can be difficult and expensive to treat.
Our dentists are committed to working with us for the long term. As such, they’ll have a better understanding of your unique dental needs as you continue to visit us on a regular basis. Our patient-led, prevention-focused approach to dentistry is the key to strong, healthy, and problem-free teeth.
