Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

Whether you’re new to McKinney or simply new to our dental office near Melissa, Dr. Cha and the rest of our dedicated team are here to help you get the answers you’re looking for. If you want to ask us directly, then you’re more than welcome to give us a call or save them for your appointment. If you want to continue your online research, then read on for the answers to FAQs!

How do I find the best place to get dental work done?

That depends on what you’re looking for in a dental practice! Are you looking for a top-rated dentist that’s close to your home or office? Are you looking for a place that welcomes your dental insurance? Are you looking for a dental team near Farmersville that offers lunchtime hours throughout the week? Whatever the case may be, it’s important to start the research process with what you value.

Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, you can ask your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues for their recommendations. Of course, you can also get a quick list of providers in your area by simply typing “dentist near me” into Google. You can take a look at each provider’s website, read their reviews, and get a better idea if they meet your criteria.

What do you do if you can't afford a dentist?

Over the years, there’s been a growing misconception: that dentistry is expensive. The reality is that neglect is expensive. In other words, if you skip your biannual checkups and essential restorative care, you’re significantly more likely to need an extensive treatment plan to restore the look, health, and function of your smile.

With all of that said, our team at Lake Forest Dental of McKinney does offer several financial solutions to keep the cost of the treatments we provide more affordable. If you’d like to learn more about dental insurance, our in-house plan, flexible financing, or our periodic specials, give us a call – we can provide you with further details from there!

How do I get emergency dental care?

Whether you’re struggling with a persistent toothache or you’ve completely knocked out a tooth, the best thing to do is call our McKinney dental office right away. That way, one of our knowledgeable team members can guide you through what to do over the phone and set aside time for you to come in for treatment with Dr. Cha.

Important note: If your jaw is fractured, you’re bleeding uncontrollably, you can’t seem to swallow, or you’re experiencing any other potentially life-threatening symptoms, you should call 911 or head to the ER immediately.

How much does a dental checkup & cleaning cost in McKinney?

Although the average price in the U.S. is anywhere from $200 to $350, patients rarely pay that. After all, dental insurance providers typically cover the cost entirely. Plus, there are several other financial solutions that lower that cost significantly, like our in-house plan.
