Below, you’ll find several of our most popular FAQs and their answers in one convenient location. If the information you were hoping to find isn’t here, feel free to contact us directly here in Irving, TX so that we can discuss it with you directly.
What ages do you see?
Our practice’s doors are open to the whole family, ages 6 months to 99 years old! From when your child gets their very first baby tooth to when your ailing parent need a full denture to improve their eating habits, our dentists offers the personalized services everyone needs to maintain great oral health and happiness throughout the years.
Does my child need braces?
We strongly recommend that all children undergo an orthodontic consultation at seven years old or earlier so that our team can diagnose possible concerns as soon as possible. Orthodontic treatment can correct a wide variety of functional and aesthetic dental concerns, including a misaligned bite, overcrowded teeth, noticeable spacing, and more. If braces may be beneficial to your son or daughter, parents will be fully informed right away.
I want to straighten my teeth, but I don’t want to wear metal braces. Is there another option?
Yes! In addition to traditional orthodontics, our practice also offers Invisalign®. Invisalign treatment uses a series of aligners instead of brackets and wires, and these aligners are very clear and comfortable – in fact, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. They’re also removable, which allows patients to keep enjoying their favorite foods and practice the same oral hygiene routine.
Going to the dentist makes me/my child feel scared and anxious. Can you help?
Of course. The Daily Smiles MacArthur team is very familiar with dental phobia, which is why patient comfort is always one of our top priorities during visits. We offer multiple sedation dentistry techniques with varying degrees of intensity so that the best fit can be determined for children and adults in need. This type of care will calm frazzled nerves and help patients feel truly at ease throughout their appointments.
Do you see dental emergencies?
Absolutely. Please contact us here in Irving, TX right away if you’re experiencing a serious dental injury or pain! Our team will find time to see you or loved one right away.
Do you take my insurance?
Daily Smiles MacArthur accepts virtually all insurance plans, so the answer is a resounding yes. Bring along your insurance card and/or informational documents to your first appointment, and we’ll help you take full advantage of the available benefits.
Do you take Medicaid?
We do! Our team members are very familiar with Medicaid coverage and which services are covered or not covered. We will be happy to review all of this information with families and then arrange care as needed to ensure that everyone’s smiles are at their best.
