Frequently Asked Questions from Spokane Valley
How often should I visit?
We recommend patients visit our Spokane practice twice a year to keep their healthiest smiles. This allows our team to diagnose and treat oral health concerns in the earliest stages.
Do people die from oral cancer?
Yes. One person dies every hour from oral cancer, but with regular preventive screenings we are able to diagnose and treat oral cancer in the earliest stages offering patients improved chances for recovery.
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is the cessation of breathing for ten or more seconds at a time during sleep. This sleep disorder affects millions of US adults, and many don’t know that comfortable, effective care is possible with oral appliance therapy from Spokane Family Smiles.
I get nervous before visiting the dentist. Do you offer sedation options?
We work hard to make every patient feel right at home by creating a friendly, comfortable, welcoming environment, but for those patients who need extra help relaxing during treatment, we offer oral conscious and IV sedation.
Do you take my insurance?
We are happy to process and file insurance claims for any dental provider. We’ll work closely with each patient to maximize their coverage and minimize their out of pocket expense.
