Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

 

How soon are your appointments?

For initial exams, our appointments usually have less than 2 weeks wait. For treatment such as fillings, sometimes we can do same day treatment, but we can usually fit you in within 2 weeks. Cleanings can range anywhere between same day to a month wait, depending on what type of cleaning (see our services page for different types of cleanings).

Do you take our insurance?

We are In Network for a number of insurances, please see our insurance page. We also would be happy to see any other PPO plans we may not be In-Network for.

Will you see me without insurance?

We do see patients without insurance, but payments for the exam and x-rays are due at the time of service. For all other treatment payment plans are available through CareCredit. Please see our payment plan page for more details.

Do I need x-rays with my exam?

For your initial appointment, a full mouth series of x-rays is required. If you would like to bring your x-rays from your previous office, we would be happy to use them, although, we do not accept a panoramic x-ray in place of a full series. At Pueblo Dental Center, we use digital x-rays which are much clearer to the dentist, and also require less radiation exposure for the patient.

Do you offer Zoom bleaching?

As of this time, we do not offer Zoom bleaching. We do however offer bleaching trays. The trays are similar to a mouth guard. You place the bleach in the trays and leave them in for a maximum of 2-3 hours. Although the bleaching trays do not show immediate results, they will continue to work as long as you continue to use them. As long as you continue our services, we provide the bleach at no extra charge.

Are you wheelchair accessible?

Yes, we are wheelchair accessible.

How long have you been in business?

Pueblo Dental Center has been in business since 1980. Our Silverbell office is fairly new, though, just opening in late 2001.

>>Back to top

What sterilization system do you use in your office?

We use two forms of sterilization, autoclave and cold sterile. Our autoclave system is a steam sterilization for 20 minutes. We use the autoclave system for all instruments that can use the autoclave. For all instruments which can not be placed in the autoclave, a cold sterile process is utalized. Cold sterile is the process of soaking instruments for 24 hours. Rooms are thoroughly wiped down with disinfectant.
