Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
When it comes to your dental care, you have a right to ask questions. At Bonita Grande Dental, we believe that the only silly question is the one that goes unasked. You're not expected to be an expert in your dental care – that's our job! But there are often decisions to be made about certain treatments where you need to feel like you can turn to a trusted source who has your best interest at heart.
Patient education plays a huge part in the services we provide, and we take the time to thoroughly answer your questions while you're in our office. But there's always one more question that comes to you, so we've listed a few that we tend to hear more often. If yours isn't listed here, please don't hesitate to contact us, and a helpful member of our team will do everything possible to help you find the answer you need.
