If you have questions and concerns for our Smile Fitness team even after reviewing the rest of our website, that’s perfectly fine! We have the answers! Please take a look at our frequently asked questions below for more information about what we can offer you for your oral health. If you still don’t find what you need, don’t hesitate to give our Phoenix office a call today.

What type of dental treatments do you provide? 

Smile Fitness Dental Center provides a comprehensive array of general, preventive, cosmetic and restorative care. Learn more about us on our Services page or call for information.

Do you accept new patients and walk-ins?

Yes! We see new patients Monday through Saturday! New patients and emergency walk ins are always welcome at our Phoenix dental office.

Do you take insurance? Is financing available?

We accept most PPO insurance plans and offer third party financing as well. Please review our Insurance and Payment Information page for more details.

Do you see children?

Absolutely! We’re happy to treat patients ages 4-110. Our dentists recommend you bring your child to our office for a first dental visit around age four or earlier if you notice problems or have concerns. If your child requires the care of a specialist, we can refer you to a trusted pediatric dentist.

Will I be told how much my treatment costs?

Yes. You’ll be given cost and insurance estimates prior to starting your treatment. We’ll also provide you with alternative options to help with budget and scheduling issues when they’re available.

Can I be seen right away if I have an emergency?

Of course! Our dentists treat emergency cases during business hours and on the same day you want to be treated. If your emergency occurs after hours, call Smile Fitness Dental Center for information on how to receive care.

What if I have a dental problem on the weekend or at night?

We offer early, late and Saturday appointments to accommodate our patients’ scheduling needs. A doctor is on call 24/7 for patients of record.

Will I need X-rays?

Your dentist will determine if X-rays are necessary and will only take specific pictures to aid in accurate and efficient diagnosis. With digital X-rays and modern X-ray equipment, radiation exposure is kept to a minimum.

Can you whiten my teeth?

Absolutely! We offer Zoom! Whitening and take home bleaching kits for stunningly white smiles. Both methods are safe, effective and deliver fantastic results.

What are the advantages of professional teeth whitening compared to over the counter products?

Teeth whitening toothpaste only removes surface stains and don’t touch the teeth long enough to be truly effective. Bleaching strips often provide an uneven application of whitening solution and produce a mottled result. Over the counter products can also irritate gum tissue. Professional in office whitening is convenient because it only takes about two hours and the results are great!

Do you offer anxiety relief?

Yes. Our dentists understand that many patients experience dental anxiety. We can prescribe a medication to be taken prior to your appointment. We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to promote comfort and calm nerves.

Are your dentists experienced?

At Smile Fitness Dental Center, our talented dentists have many years of experience. You can rely on their skill, education, and knowledge to complete your dental work with precision and care. Read our team bios for more information.
