Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
What will my first visit cost?
At Lana ROZENBERG DDS, our doctors and staff believe in making dental care affordable and accessible for everyone. If you don’t have insurance, there will be no charge for your first visit for a comprehensive exam and x-rays with recommended treatment. The doctor will perform the exam and recommend a course of treatment. The office manager will provide pricing information and discuss payment options.
What can I expect at my first appointment?
Your first appointment is an exam only, consisting of a evaluation of your teeth, gums and mouth. Based on this evaluation, x-rays may need to be taken. No dental treatment is provided during this exam.
Your second appointment will be for treatment planning. Your dentist will review the findings of your exam and x-rays and discuss how your dental needs can be met. Your dentist will review the risks and benefits of the treatment, and you will be asked to sign a consent agreeing to the planned treatment. Your dental treatment will start at your next scheduled visit.
Note: If you are experiencing dental pain at the time of your exam appointment you will be seen as an emergency patient so that your immediate dental need can be met. You will then be scheduled for another appointment for a complete exam.
What if I am afraid of dental treatment; can you put me to sleep?
When necessary, nitrous oxide sedation can be used for almost any procedure. While it does not put you to sleep, it does provide you with a relaxing, positive dental experience.
Are all Dentists certified and licensed?
Yes, all Lana ROZENBERG DDS Dentists and Dental Assistants are certified and fully licensed in the state of New York.
Can I schedule an appointment just for a cleaning?
An exam to determine your oral health is an essential first step. The hygienist will perform cleanings based on your oral health. They will quickly schedule your cleaning, allowing proper time for them to give you the attention you deserve.
Are x-rays necessary?
Absolutely. It is impossible to see directly between the teeth or under the gums or bone without the use of a dental radiograph. Many diseases and conditions can only be detected with the use of dental x-rays. X-rays allow dentists to detect disease and other conditions much sooner than the clinical examination alone.
Do you treat children?
We do. However, the age at which we accept children as patients may vary by location. To ensure a great dental experience for your children we ask that you call the clinic nearest you for specific information.
Are you accepting new patients?
Always. As a new patient at Lana ROZENBERG DDS, your first appointment will include a comprehensive exam, x-rays and a consultation with your office manager. They will answer all your questions, as well as go over your suggested treatment plan, pricing options and will help you schedule any future appointments.
Do you help patients who don’t have insurance and no credit?
Yes. Lana ROZENBERG DDS Dentists and team members strive to make dental care available to everyone. We offers a number of financing options for your convenience, like CareCredit.
I’m pregnant but need to come in for treatment. What can I do?
We will not be able to take x-rays, but we always welcome your visit. However, prior to your first visit, you must obtain a release form from your doctor, indicating that you can visit a dental office. With some exceptions, most procedures and treatments can easily be performed on expectant moms.
