I would highly recommend this office to all of my family members and friends.”

At Soldotna Dental Arts, we understand if you have questions ahead of your first visit, and that’s okay. Our team is always here to help you however we can if you can’t find the exact answers you’re looking for. That’s why we encourage you to take a look at some of the most common questions our office receives below!
The moment you need emergency dental care, you should call our practice. When you call, you’ll be able to get in touch with someone who is trained to help you improve and manage your emergency situation. If your emergency is life-threatening, call 911 right away. Keep in mind that emergency rooms, including ones in hospitals, mobile units, and quick care clinics are not equipped to handle dental emergencies. This means you are unlikely to get the treatment you need should you visit one. Instead, call our practice and we’ll do everything we can to get you seen the same day that you call. Most of the time, dental emergencies are an indication of bigger dental issues that imply you should get back into the habit of visiting a dentist regularly.
Start by determining exactly what it is that you’re looking for in a dentist. For example, once you’ve determined the most important goals for your needs, such as whether they accept insurance, their location, specific dental credentials, hours, and what protocols they implement to keep you safe, choosing a dental office becomes much easier. You’ll also want to confirm if they have the right services you or your family needs. Visiting in person, reading patient reviews, and getting to know the dentist and team through their online bios can also make your search significantly easier.
The best way to get a same-day appointment scheduled is by calling the practice directly, rather than emailing them. Phone calls are also more effective at allowing the practice’s team to better understand your emergency and get you care sooner. In many cases, dental offices will even have specific operatories designated for same-day appointment requests and emergencies. During your same-day visit, the dentist will examine your mouth, assess the situation at hand, remove any discomfort you’re experiencing, then plan for a future treatment. Sometimes that treatment can be performed the same day as well.
At the end of the day, dentistry is focused on prevention the most. Preventive dentistry is not only affordable, but it also allows you to work with your dentist directly to avoid serious dental problems later. When you have dental insurance, you can take advantage of your benefits and use them to cover your dental care. If you cannot afford dental insurance, check with the healthcare provider to see if you can qualify for Medicaid or Medicare dental benefits.
