Frequently Asked Questions

What makes you different from other dentists?

Relationships. We care about each and every patient who calls our Santa Fe dental office and walks in our doors. Read our patient testimonials and see our smile makeover photos to see what we mean. Then call our Santa Fe dental office to schedule your visit!

How can I comfortably whiten my teeth?

Sensitivity is an issue for many patients who want a dazzling white smile through cosmetic teeth whitening. We employ the Deep Bleaching technique, which uses a combination of home and in-office treatments for effective long-term color stability and dramatically reduced sensitivity. Ask about Deep Bleaching at your next visit, or call us now.

Will you care for my entire family?

Dr. Davis does not strictly do cosmetic dentistry. He sees entire families for general dentistry, and we can also help with migraine headaches, TMJ pain, restorative dentistry, and tooth replacement. If you have any dental need, call our office in Santa Fe to ask how you can get a world renowned dental expert on your dental team!

Will you accept my insurance?

We are an independent dental office working for you and your family. For your convenience, we file and mail all insurance claims the day of care. We estimate your payment charge that is due at the time of service. We work with most insurance programs for assignment of benefits. Currently, our office is a Delta Dental Provider.

There are no hidden agendas or dual relationships. Our interest and loyalty is
solely to the well being of you and your family. We will never allow a third party to bias our clinical treatment or care offered.

CareCredit works with many of our patients needing financing or a payment plans.

What precautions do you take to ensure patient safety?

Your safety and peace of mind are invaluable aspects of your comfort, so SMILES OF SANTA FE takes measures to maintain a safe environment for patient care. We adhere to or exceed standards of infection control set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Every year, our team attends training to stay abreast of the latest developments in dental safety. An autoclave heats our reusable instruments to a temperature that kills all bacteria, and we seal instruments to keep them sterile. When possible, we use disposable products, as well.

We also realize numbers of people have allergic or toxic reactions to commonly used dental materials. For this reason and others, we have eliminated nickel, mercury, chromium, and a number of specific non-precious heavy metals from use in our dental restorations.

If you have questions about safety at SMILES OF SANTA FE, please call us for answers!

Can I finance my dental work?

We make dental care convenient for your budget by partnering with the trusted name in patient financing, CareCredit. Qualified applicants can get no-interest or long term financing at reasonable rates. Apply online at CareCredit, or call us for assistance.

I don't like dentist visits. What do you suggest?

Do you like aromatherapy? Friendly service? A beautiful garden view? Our Santa Fe dental office is a haven for your comfort and peace of mind. Upon request, Dr. Davis can administer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or pre-medication to keep you comfortable and relaxed. We also offer warm, scented towels, so you can freshen up after treatment.

I have not been to the dentist in years. Is your staff judgmental?

Yes. And we judge you to be a strong and courageous person! Your decision to seek dental care after all this time is admirable. We will partner with you to help you meet your goals for optimal oral health and wellness!
