What Others are Saying

“Dr. Rakowsky and his staff have been caring for mine and my family’s teeth for the better part of 25+ years. I so appreciate the efficiency and organization of the office. The staff, Michelle, Debbie, Roxanne, Denise, and Terry have always been professional and caring. They have been with us as our children grew and are now patients themselves. It has been our pleasure to have been with the same dentist for this long, they are like family!”

We’re always happy to have the opportunity to help you learn more about dental care and give you a clearer picture of what you can expect from our practice! Check the FAQs below to see if we have already responded to the questions that have been bothering you lately. If not, you can always reach out to us and ask us directly.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

If you have dental insurance, one of your top priorities will likely be finding a practice that is willing to accept your plan. The office’s location and hours will also probably influence your decision. On top of that, chances are you want a dentist with good credentials who provides specific kinds of services for improving and protecting your smile. Take the time to define what you’re looking for before you start comparing practices.

Another strategy is to look at online reviews. Seeing what other patients have to say about a practice can paint a picture of what the team is like and what kind of experience you might have during your own appointment. See what sort of feedback the practice has received on sites like Google, Facebook, and Yelp.

How Much Does It Cost to Get a Tooth Pulled Without Insurance?

A tooth extraction is typically recommended as a last resort when there’s no other way to protect your oral health. As such, you will definitely want to make sure that you’re able to fit the cost of the procedure into your budget. Tooth extractions often cost between $150 and $400 in the United States, but the specific practice you visit, the location of the tooth, the number of teeth being removed, and other factors all need to be taken into account before the final price can be determined.

What Level of Education is Required to Be a Dentist?

Becoming a dentist requires many years of study and education. All dentists have either a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS). To obtain a DMD or DDS, one must enroll in dental school, which requires a bachelor’s degree. Completing dental school takes at least three years. Then, once a dentist has earned their degree, they will be expected to take continuing education courses. The number of continuing education hours required can vary depending on the state.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Avoiding the dentist to save money isn’t the best idea; it’s better to have small dental issues treated before they can turn into severe (and potentially costly) problems. You can make visiting the dentist less of a burden on your wallet by:
