FAQs

General

Hours of Operation?

Mondays — Thursdays 7AM – 6PM
Fridays 7AM – 5PM
Two Saturdays a month from 8AM – 2PM

Emergency Visits?

Yes! We schedule differently than most dental offices, allowing time to see patients usually within a few hours of your call – if not immediately! You won't be asked to come in and wait for an opening or be rushed through your care just because of a dental emergency.

Emergency After Hours?

Call us anytime. After hours calls are forwarded to an emergency line where you can leave a message, and one of our doctors will call you back. Of course, if it's a life-threatening emergency, call 911.

Services We Provide?

MFD is a General Practice with multiple dentists providing comprehensive preventative, restorative and Orthodontic dental treatment for the entire family. From pediatric "Happy Visits" where we introduce young children to a dental office environment to advanced complete mouth rehabilitations and everything in between, we have the unique ability to treat a wide variety of dental needs in one convenient location.

Accept My Insurance?

Please see accepted insurance providers. If you don’t see your provider listed, we can still file with them on your behalf. Generally, this is known as being "out-of-network"- which simply means that your provider will not reimburse us a preset amount, because we have not entered into a contract with them. Your provider will still reimburse for a portion of your treatment, just as they would if you were visiting an "in-network" office. Typically, there is not a significant difference in your responsibility to us whether you are in or out of network. Our staff is well-trained to assist you with any questions you may have regarding your plan’s dental benefit.

Sedation

Types of Sedation Offered?

We work with you to customize a level of sedation to meet your needs. The lightest level of sedation, Nitrous Oxide (commonly known as laughing gas) offers a more relaxed state while you remain awake during your procedure. One advantage of this level of sedation is that you can drive yourself to and from your appointment. Most patients choose moderate oral sedation, where a combination of Nitrous Oxide and medication is used to achieve a deeper level of sedation. Oftentimes, patients tell us that this level of sedation is preferable, because they have little or no memory of their visit. We also offer deep sedation, which is provided by an anesthesiologist here in the office.

Orthodontics

Who’s eligible for Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen treatment is appropriate for patients who have shed all their baby teeth and have second molars at least partially erupted – this includes most teens. Ask your Orthodontist to see if you qualify to start treatment now.

How long does Invisalign Teen take?

The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case and can only be determined by your doctor; however, the average case takes about 12 months.

Does Invisalign really work?

Yes! In practices worldwide, Invisalign has been effective straightening teeth for teens and adults. Thousands of orthodontists have patients in Invisalign treatment every day.

How does Invisalign Teen work?

3-D computer imaging technology maps the complete treatment from start to finish. From this plan, a series of custom-made aligners is produced. You wear each aligner for about two weeks. During this time, the aligners gradually move your teeth until they achieve the desired final position.
