Frequently Asked Questions.
Below are some of the questions we are asked most frequently from our patients. If you have a question that you don’t see an answer for below, feel free to give us a call, and our team at our Nanaimo dental clinic will be happy to assist you.
Yes! We offer two options to make your appointment more comfortable. We can administer oral sedatives one hour prior to your appointment that will make you quite relaxed and calm for your dental treatment. You will be required to have a responsible adult accompany you to and from your appointment if you take oral sedatives. We also administer nitrous oxide known as “laughing gas” for patients who would prefer to leave and go about their day immediately after their appointment with no after-effects.
Yes! Most wisdom tooth extractions can be done in our office. Very occasionally we may need to refer a patient to a specialist to extract wisdom teeth.
We are centrally located in the professional building at the corner of Northfield and Bowen Roads.
Yes! We see babies and children of all ages. At times it is necessary to refer a child to a specialist for treatment depending on age and/or the treatment needed.
Yes! The vast majority of root canals we do involve only a single visit.
We always make our best efforts to see dental emergencies on the same day. Although this cannot be guaranteed, we will see you to assess your dental emergency as soon as we possibly can. Pain, swelling, bleeding, or redness may indicate a dental emergency.
Yes! There is ample parking right outside our door, which is free and convenient.
We accept cash, cheque, VISA, Mastercard and AMEX.
We accept most insurance plans. For example First Canadian Health, Pacific Blue Cross, and Sunlife. Since there are many insurance companies, please contact the admin staff to inquire which insurances we’re able to accept assignment from.
