Working with Your Family Dentist

Your family dentist has referred you to our office and naturally plays an important role in your optimum oral health. We recognize the value of good communication between doctors and have therefore made a commitment to work with your general dentist to enable the most comprehensive treatment program. We maintain communication during and after the treatment. When your root canal therapy is completed, you will return to your own dentist to receive a permanent restoration for your tooth. Your dentist is best qualified to determine which type of permanent restoration is necessary to protect your tooth

Patient Protection and Comfort

It is imperative that health care facilities consistently apply state-of-the-art sterilization and disinfecting techniques to provide patients with maximum protection. In our office, we are committed to your safety. Throughout the day, we continuously and thoroughly sterilize our equipment for your protection and adhere to or exceed every standard of infection control set by the Center for Disease Control and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Your comfort is also a top priority so we strive to make our office a relaxing and pleasant environment. In addition, we communicate with you every step of the way. We find an informed patient is more relaxed, allowing for optimum treatment results.


Financial Options

Several factors determine the fee for endodontic therapy; you will be informed of any fees before treatment is started. We are aware dental insurance may not cover the total cost of treatment, and we will make every effort to help maximize coverage and increase reimbursement. Financial options will also be discussed during your initial visit.

Dr. Gallego-Cubillos and her staff extend their commitment to providing excellent dental care to helping patients select the best payment option for their individual needs. Flexible payment options are available and are based on the responsible party’s credit history. We accept cash, check, all major credit cards and Care Credit.

Appointments / Scheduling

Because we want to make your first visit as convenient as possible, we e-mail the necessary health history forms to you. Please fill out the paperwork completely. Your first visit will include a comprehensive examination followed by a thorough discussion of your condition and treatment options.

With regard to scheduling and appointments, we value your time and pride ourselves on the efficiency of our office. We have convenient office hours that allow you to make an appointment that fits easily into your schedule. Additionally, always with our patient’s best interest in mind, we try to accomodate dental emergencies on same day.
