Your Questions

How does the doctor keep up-to-date on all of the current techniques and materials?

Dr. Novak subscribes to the latest industry journals and attends continuing education classes, along with the rest of his staff. He also belongs to three local study groups. As individuals and as a team, we believe it is our responsibility to stay current on the latest developments.

How do I know when it is time to come in for a checkup?

Healthy adults usually benefit from professional cleanings and checkups every six months. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once daily will go a long way toward keeping your mouth healthy. But even patients with the best homecare routine needs help removing plaque and tartar with a professional cleaning.

Do you accept my insurance plan?

Our office accepts most major insurance plans and will file your claims for you. We’re also knowledgeable about the latest coverage and will be happy to discuss your insurance with you before your treatment.

We also offer and in-house membership plan called the Passport Dental Plan.  It has proven very effective for patients that are not covered by traditional dental insurance, those who have extensive treatment plans, or those who seek treatment not covered by their existing plan.

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

If you have a true dental emergency, please call our office at (817) 594-7302. You will be prompted to leave a message for Dr. Novak, which will be forwarded directly to his cell phone.

What different payment options do you offer?

We accept cash, personal checks and credit cards like Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We also offer financing through CareCredit, which has a number of different financing plans, including a 12-month interest-free plan.

If you have questions about payment or financing, please talk with our friendly, knowledgeable office staff.

How can I safely whiten my teeth?

A number of new procedures can make your smile whiter and brighter. Dr. Novak can help you determine the potential for whitening your teeth based on their current color and the causes of any discoloration. Once he’s decided on the most appropriate method, you will most likely spend anywhere from two to four weeks undergoing simple treatments that will give you the white smile you’ve always wanted.

My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?

Bleeding gums can be caused by using improper, rough scrubbing; using a hard-bristled toothbrush instead of a soft one; plaque or tartar buildup below the gum line; or gum sensitivity due to gum disease. If you brush and floss correctly and your gums continue to bleed, please call us for an appointment to evaluate the problem.

I really do not like visiting the dentist. Is there anything you can do to help me relax?

We understand that many patients are nervous about visiting the dentist. That’s why we offer oral sedation, where a simple pill helps you relax while your dental work is being done. Oral sedation is so effective it allows us to complete a lot of work or a complex procedure while you’re totally relaxed. Often patients are so comfortable they don’t remember the procedure. If you don’t like visiting the dentist, ask about oral sedation as a treatment option.
