What is the length of my first appointment?
During your first visit to our office, you will receive a thorough dental examination that includes X-rays and cleaning. Your dentist will develop a Personal Dental Care Plan, based upon your immediate needs, current dental health and long-term oral health goals. This individual plan will include recommendations for cleanings, restorations and preventive treatments. Please set aside 2 hours from your schedule.
Will I experience pain during my procedure?
At our office, we care about your wellbeing and your overall positive experience. Dr Bautista makes sure that all procedures performed in the office follow our protocols to minimize any possible discomfort you might feel.
Do I need X rays?
We believe in the principle of limiting our patients’ exposure to radiation. When needed, we monitor the status of hard tissues (bones and teeth) with digital X-rays keeping the radiation dosage to the minimum.
Do you transmit my claim electronically to the insurance company?
We will be more than happy to submit your claim electronically at no cost to you. Usually, you will be reimbursed for the portion of the fees your plan covers between 1 to 3 business days following the submission of the claim.

Yes. We accept the ASEQ student dental plan as well as dental insurance. If you have any questions about payments, please contact our office for more information and we will be happy to help you.
What type of technology do you use that I can benefit from?
The use of technology can be divided into two main categories: for diagnosis and treatment planning in which we routinely use digital radiology keeping radiation dosage to the minimum, and profiting from the high resolution images. The use of 3D planning tools enables us to graphically predict the outcome of procedures like implants and orthodontics. The second category is technology for treatments where we include the digital capturing of the images of your mouth including the topographic details without having to use uncomfortable impression materials.
What is the benefit of digital X Rays?
The foundation of a thorough examination of the hard tissues (bone and teeth) is the analysis of radiographs. When capturing digital media, the resolution, size, quality, storability and analysis are much improved. Also the amount of radiation dose can be lowered as much as one half when compared with analog methods.
What is the benefit of a digital impression system?
Itero is the world leading company in developing technology for intra-oral impressions. This advance in technology represents a huge benefit for our patients since we eliminate uncomfortable procedures using gummy materials that stimulate gag reflex and anxiety.
