Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

We’ve done our best to make our website as informative as possible. With that said, you’re always welcome to bring any lingering questions you have to our team! If you can’t get on the phone right now, then keep reading; this next section is dedicated to answering FAQs.

What level of education is required to be a dentist?

As you may know, becoming a dentist requires years and years of schooling. Before being accepted to one of only 67 accredited dental schools in the U.S., they must earn their bachelor’s degree. In order to earn their Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) degree, they must complete three years of in-classroom and hands-on training. Although their education spans seven years at this point, their studies are far from over. In order to maintain their license, they need to complete continuing education and advanced training annually.

How do I get emergency dental care?

When a dental emergency strikes, it’s important to assess your symptoms. If you’re experiencing a potentially life-threatening symptom, like difficulty breathing, then you need to seek medical attention at the ER. If you aren’t, then you need to get the necessary restorative care at our office.

Remember, loose restorations, knocked-out teeth, and other common dental injuries can typically be avoided with a commitment to good oral hygiene best practices. So, if you aren’t already, make sure that you’re following a solid dental care regimen at home, visiting us twice a year for a checkup and cleaning, wearing a mouthguard when playing sports, and avoiding unhealthy dental habits, like smoking.

How many dentists are in Tappan?

According to Google, the city of Tappan has a population of 7,415 (as of 2020). Since there is typically only one dentist for every 2,000 people, you can quickly deduce that there aren’t very many providers in the area. Fortunately, we’re conveniently located nearby at 140 Oak Tree Road!

How much does a dental checkup & cleaning cost in Tappan?

Although there isn’t a flat fee, the average price in the U.S. is between $200 and $350. However, patients rarely end up spending that much. After all, dental insurance providers typically cover preventive care at 100% and, if you aren’t insured, there are other financial solutions available, like our Smile Savings Club! In short, if you are concerned that you won’t be able to afford the cost of your next checkup and cleaning, don’t hesitate to talk to our team about all of the financial solutions available to you.

How can I find a female dentist?

If you’re looking for a female dentist in Tappan, good news: we have several right here at Smile More Dentistry! If you don’t reside in or around Tappan, then you also can type “female dentist near me” into Google. Or, you can ask friends, colleagues, and family members for their recommendations.
