FAQ

At what age should my children first see a dentist?

We recommend that children see a dentist around the age of 2. We also recommend that, for your child's first visit, he or she comes in with a parent or a sibling so they can be introduced to our office and see that going to the dentist does not need to be a scary experience.

Do I need to bring money to my appointments?

Yes, payment is due at the time the service is rendered.  If you have dental insurance we will estimate your portion due on the day of your treatment if a pre-estimate is not on file.  

Are you contracted with my insurance?

Bartlett Family Dentistry is contracted with Delta Dental Premier, Cigna and Blue Cross Blue Shield; however, as a courtesy we will file with most insurance companies.

Is Bartlett Family Dentistry a Medicaid or AR Kids provider?

No, not at this time.

Does Bartlett Family Dentistry offer Nitrous Oxide, aka, Laughing Gas?

Yes, this is available upon your request.  However, be aware that most insurance companies do not pay for this luxury. 

Is it safe to drive after Nitrous Oxide?

Yes, N20 is an inhalant and before patients leave our dental chair the N20 is replaced with Oxygen clearing any lingering effects felt by the Nitrous Oxide. 

I have a temporary crown in my mouth what should I do if it comes off or breaks?

At your dental appointment, we will give you instructions on how to care for your temporary crown.  If it does, you should keep your tooth clean. For esthetic concerns, you can put Fixodent or Dent temp on and put the crown back into place until you return to our office. If you are experiencing any pain or sensitivity when your crown comes off or breaks, please call our office immediately.

What do I do if I have an emergency and the office is closed?

Dr. Bartlett providers her cell phone to all her established patients and is available via text message.

How can I safely whiten my teeth?

Our office offers two methods for whitening: Custom trays and Nitewhite gel or ZOOM! in office treatment.

My gums bleed after I brush, is this something I should be concerned with?

Bleeding gums are not normal! It could be the result of brushing too hard or could be an early sign of gingivitis. Please contact our office if your gums are bleeding. 

If I get a crown do I have to get a root canal?

No, a Root Canal is only needed when decay has reached the nerve of the tooth.
