Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept referrals?

The Riley Dental Group team loves referrals because they indicate that we have happy, satisfied patients. When you send family and friends to our practice, we consider it the nicest compliment.

I want my front teeth to look better, but I do not want to wear braces.
What would you recommend?

For patients who don’t want metal braces, our cosmetic dentists offer alternatives. Invisalign clear aligners, custom molded for your treatment plan, straighten teeth without the discomfort and hassle of traditional braces. Another option, porcelain veneers, can cover gaps, stains, chips, and cracks, creating a new smile that suits your style and complements your appearance. Discuss these options with your Riley Dental Group dentist at your next appointment. Learn more about Invisalign in our library.

I really do not like visiting the dentist, so is there anything
you can do to help me relax?

We know that a visit to the dentist can cause apprehension, so we try to make the experience stress free. The doctors provide thorough, gentle treatment, and the staff works to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. If you suffer from dental anxiety, we may recommend oral sedation. Learn more about oral sedation in our library.

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

If you have bleeding or swollen gums, these symptoms may indicate a bigger problem – gum disease. Without gum disease treatment, the condition can lead to tooth loss and serious health problems. We will perform a complete exam and then determine the right plan for your situation. Learn more about gum disease in our library.

What insurance and payment methods do you accept?

We are an in-network or preferred provider for most PPO insurances. Riley Dental Group will also electronically file and estimate benefits for your PPOs or traditional insurance providers. Our other easy payment options include cash, check, credit cards, and no-interest financing. Let us know if you have any questions.
