“I have been going to Purple Plum for 7 years now. They are always clean, professional, friendly, and caring. They always make sure I am comfortable and well taken care of. Now I even take my 2 boys aged 6 and 9 for the checkups after their pediatric dentist was hard to make an appointment with in 2020. The boys loved their experience and so did I! They love going to the dentist now!”

Whether you’re a potential new patient who wants to learn more about our practice or a returning patient who is interested in pursuing a particular kind of treatment, we’re here to answer any dentistry-related questions that might be on your mind. Below are just some of the things that patients often ask us (along with some useful answers). Do you have a question that isn’t addressed here? Don’t hesitate to get in touch with our helpful dental team!
There’s no time to lose when you have a knocked-out tooth or another type of dental emergency. Since the ER likely won’t be able to treat the underlying issue, you should call your dentist if you have an urgent dental situation (though the ER is the better choice if you have a life-threatening problem). Our practice offers same-day emergency appointments, allowing you to get the care that your smile deserves as promptly as possible. Call us if you think you need emergency dental care; one of our team members will do everything they can to help you.
Odds are that you will end up choosing a dental practice based on factors such as whether they take your insurance or whether they have hours that work for your schedule. You’ll also want to check the preventive, restorative, and cosmetic services the practice offers to make sure that they can meet your particular needs.
You can get to know a specific practice better by looking up reviews from their patients. It may also help to learn more about the dentists and their staff by reading their online biographies. The more information you have, the easier it will be to make the right decision for your oral health care.
Obviously, different practices will charge different prices for a dental checkup and cleaning. In the United States, the cost is typically between $200 and $350, but the location of the practice will likely play a role in determining how much you end up paying. Also, you may be able to save money on preventive care by taking advantage of your dental insurance or by signing up for the practice’s in-house membership plan. Feel free to talk to our team members if you’re interested in exploring your financial options.
The first step is to get into an accredited dental school, which requires a bachelor’s degree. After about three years of dental school (which involves hands-on learning in addition to classwork), a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) can be earned. An individual with either of these degrees is recognized as a dentist.
Note that continuing education is required for a dentist to be able to keep their license. The exact number of hours of continuing education needed varies by state.
