At Lakeside Daytona Dentist, we view patient education as equally important to the high level of dental care we are known for providing.

Some questions come up again and again, so we have compiled them here for your convenience. Read your Daytona Beach dentist’s top 7 questions and answers below!
What if it’s been a while since I last visited the dentist?
No matter! We never make our patients feel bad or guilty for letting their oral hygiene habits slip. The important thing is that you are taking steps towards a clean, healthy smile right now.
How often should I come in for a checkup and cleaning?
Patients of all ages should usually visit the dentist every six months for a routine exam and hygiene appointment. People who are at a higher risk of tooth decay or gum disease may need to come in more often.
What if I have a dental phobia?
We work to make sure visiting Lakeside Daytona Dentist is a relaxing experience with comforting sedation and a relaxed, personable approach. Patients look forward to visiting our dental office!
Do root canals hurt?
Thanks to modern dental methods, tools, and relaxing sedation, there is nothing to fear from a root canal. In fact, you will be so comfortable you won’t feel a thing — we promise.
Can I bring the whole family into Lakeside Daytona Dentist?
We are happy to welcome patients of all ages into our dental office!
Do you accept my dental insurance?
Yes! We are happy to accept a number of dental insurance plans, including Aetna, Ameritas, Cigna, Delta Dental, Dentemax, GEHA Dental Plans, Guardian, Humana Dental, Metlife, Mutual of Omaha, PPO, Principal Financial Group, United Concordia, and United Health Care.
Am I eligible for cosmetic dentistry?
Most adults can benefit from some aspect of cosmetic dentistry! If you are in good oral health but are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, don’t wait to ask your Daytona Beach dentist about what’s possible with porcelain veneers, professional teeth whitening, and other treatments.
