Is Dr. Knight accepting new patients?
The office of Samuel D. Knight, DDS is happily accepting new patients with or without insurance. We offer a new patient comprehensive exam, prophylaxis (cleaning), and X-rays for your first visit. We look forward to meeting your dental needs!
What are your office’s payment options?
We happily file insurance claims as a courtesy to our patients. We do ask, however, that patients come prepared to pay at the time of service for the portion that insurance does not pay.
We accept most major credit cards, as well as financing through CareCredit.
How do I know if you accept my insurance?
The best way to determine if your dental insurance company will pay for services with our office is to call them and ask if they list Dr. Knight as an in-network provider for your plan.
Does your office know how much my insurance will pay?
We can only offer an educated guess, but each dental insurance provider varies on the services allowed and paid for.
Does Dr. Knight use white or silver fillings?
Dr. Knight does not prefer one type over the other, and he can help you determine the material that is most suitable for your needs during a consultation.
What kind of teeth whitening system is recommended at your practice?
Dr. Knight recommends the at-home teeth whitening options of either personal dental trays or professional prescription-strength disposable strips or trays. Both types of whitening are effective.
What do I need to know about “happy gas?”
Also known as nitrous oxide, it is a colorless, non-flammable gas with a slightly sweet odor and taste. It can be used in combination with other sedatives, and it calms anxiety in patients. By the time you leave our office, the nitrous oxide will be out of your system, and you will be able to drive home.
