“Dr Scott is simply amazing. He's been keeping my teeth in movie-star shape for the last 25 years. (My teeth were too much for serval other dentists who suggested I should just make "the best of it and just learn to accept it.")

Frequently Asked Questions

Whether it’s a question about dentistry or a question about our practice, you can always reach out to our West Monroe office so that one of our talented team members can help you. We’ve listed some of the questions that we hear particularly frequently down below, but odds are there are a few other things that you’d like to know as well, and we’d be happy to discuss them over the phone or during your next appointment.

What is the Best Way to Find a Dentist Who Does Dental Implants?

As dental implants are the best way to replace your missing teeth, you’ll definitely want to make sure you choose an experienced, knowledgeable dentist to handle the procedure. Training definitely matters; you’ll get better results from a dentist who is up to date with the latest techniques. Dr. Scott has gone out of his way to expand his education in the field of dental implants through the Zimmer Institute, where he was trained in placing state-of-the-art All-on-4 implant systems. He is also able to complete both stages of the implant procedure (placement and restoration) in-house for your convenience.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Seeing a dentist every six months for preventive care can help you save money by preventing serious dental issues that might require expensive treatments. If you have access to dental insurance, it’s best to take advantage of it to reduce the out-of-pocket costs of your care. Those without insurance can consider financing through CareCredit, which breaks up the cost of care into smaller installments with little interest attached. If you have any doubts about your ability to pay for dental care, check with your healthcare provider to see what options you might have for managing costs better.

What Level of Education is Required to Be a Dentist?

All dentists in the United States need a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) from one of 67 accredited dental schools. To enroll in dental school, you first need a bachelor’s degree in a major heavy in math and sciences. Dental school usually takes about 3 years, but even after graduation, a dentist is required to complete a certain number of continuing education hours to keep their license. Dr. Scott takes his continuing education very seriously, undergoing extensive training in implant dentistry and pursuing his interest in dental esthetics by training in Botox and Dermal fillers.

How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with a Dentist?

Losing a tooth in an accident or experiencing a sudden painful toothache calls for immediate dental attention. Call our office immediately if there’s a dental emergency; we’ll ask questions to gain a better understanding of your situation, guide you through any first aid that might be required, and set up a same-day appointment with Dr. Scott for you so that he can determine the underlying issue, stop the pain, and make sure that your natural smile remains as whole as possible.
