"I am very happy that I found Advanced Dentistry! The office staff were very kind and the hygienist who cleaned my teeth took the time to answer my questions and immediately made me feel at ease. I feel that I am in great hands at Advanced Dentistry!"- B.K. / Google / Feb 06, 2021
"I want to start by saying that I am getting to know the new staff and dentists and so far the experience has been very positive. I also want to add that Dr. Kwon helped me with a very difficult implant that had been started by another dentist. Thank you!"- D.C. / Google / Jan 05, 2021
"I had trepidation about my appointment, because there had been a long lapse in my dental care, and I had previous negative dental experiences elsewhere. I was blown away by the pleasant, efficient, and COVID-conscious care I received. The receptionists were attentive and friendly, and my hygienist was a gem--she was not only personable, but very skilled and knowledgeable. She is definitely an asset to this practice with a bright future. I only saw the dentist briefly, since this was a routine new patient appointment/cleaning, but he had a good bedside manner, and I feel confident that my dental health is in good hands."- P.V. / Google / Jan 02, 2021
"Great cleaning! Katya did a wonderful job."- L.W. / Google / Jan 02, 2021
"I am highly impressed and I wish I could leave more than 5 stars. I have been here a number of times now and each time it is, hands-down, the best dental care experience I have had in years. The staff are polite, friendly, and highly skilled - plus they are keen on taking appropriate COVID-19 precautions to always keep them and their patients safe. They are prompt and effective, but won't make you feel like some passenger on a conveyor belt, either. If you're curious, they will also explain every step of their process. (Useful tip: when you book an appointment, ask to be placed on Kristen's schedule. Thank me later)"- O.O. / Google / Oct 30, 2020
Candidates for Family Dentistry
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children visit the dentist before they turn one. Children can be at risk for developing tooth decay (cavities) early in life, making it crucial for your son or daughter to receive preventive procedures and if needed, treatment. Our dentists recommend that every member of your family schedule preventive dental cleaning and check-up visits at least two times a year. Any patient experiencing discomfort, pain, damage, or abnormalities in their mouth are encouraged to visit Advanced Dentistry for personalized dental care right away. When problems are detected early, you can often have less invasive treatment options and a faster road to recovery.
What to Expect During Dental Visits
Typical family dentistry appointments will consist of a dental examination and cleaning. Other preventive services, including fluoride treatments and x-rays, may be provided on a routine basis to further enhance your health. Additional treatments may be recommended if needed, such as if tooth decay, gum disease, misaligned teeth, or other conditions that threaten oral health are present. Prior to any procedure, our dentists will talk with you and your family about your options for care and help you select the most appropriate solution for your needs and oral health goals. As a leader in family dental care, Advanced Dentistry offers emergency dental services to restore your health and comfort when you need it most. We also strive to deliver high-quality care in a comfortable, stress-free manner and offer several sedation dentistry options to help even the most fearful patients enjoy relaxing visits.
The Frequency of Care
Following each appointment, our dentists will help you develop a personalized care plan to improve your family's dental health. One of the most important elements involved in maintaining a healthy, happy smile is having a good home oral hygiene routine, which includes thorough flossing and brushing each day. Our caring team members can show you proper flossing and brushing techniques or suggest products to help you better manage specific oral health concerns. Routine appointments at Advanced Dentistry can also help our dentists monitor your family's oral health and diagnose minor concerns before they become bigger issues. Whether you require follow-up visits or simple routine preventive services, our staff will help you schedule your next dental appointment at a time most convenient for your family.
Insurance Coverage for Family Dentistry
Even though many general dental treatments are typically covered at least in part by most dental insurance policies, our team will contact your insurance carrier and help you maximize your benefits. Advanced Dentistry is a participating provider for the Nittany Dental Network along with a number of other insurance plans and accepts several payment methods, including flexible financing options.
A Future of Healthy Smiles
No matter your age, it is important to take care of your teeth and be proactive against oral diseases. We try to make trips to the dentist a positive experience for families in State College, PA and help individuals in every stage of life enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles now and in the future.
