$175 New Patient Special

Whether you are looking for a new dentist in Park Slope or haven’t been to the dentist in years, Park Slope Dentistry Seventh Avenue has the perfect deal for you. For only $175 you will receive a thorough cleaning from one of our expert hygienists, and a comprehensive dental exam, oral cancer screening and full set of dental x-rays.

No Insurance? No Problem!

A common refrain from patients is that they put off seeing the dentist for years because they didn’t have dental insurance and assumed cleanings and exams cost a fortune. Your dental health is too important to put off, which is why at Park Slope Dentistry Seventh Avenue we’re transparent about the price of our new patient exams. You can visit our office confident that you will receive a full and thorough cleaning and exam for only $175 with no hidden fees.

Have Insurance? Even Easier!

If we work with your dental insurance, your new patient exam will just cost you your copay. We are in network with Cigna and Delta Premier, and work with some other insurances. To find out if we work with your insurance, call us at 718-768-1111 or email office@slopedental.com.

Continuing Treatment

Hopefully your teeth are perfectly healthy and after your appointment you only need regular 6 month cleanings and exams. But if you happen to need more treatment, we offer a range of payment options as well as discounts for pre-payments.

 

 

Q&A


What is involved in a cleaning?

In a routine dental cleaning, our hygienists use ultrasonic technology and hand instruments to remove plaque and tartar on your teeth and at the gum line. And to finish, they polish your teeth to make them nice and smooth and give your smile a brighter more beautiful shine.


What if I haven’t had my teeth cleaned in a long time?

Don’t feel bad! It’s very common for people to put off visiting the dentist, sometimes for years. And what’s worse, the longer they go without a cleaning, the more embarrassing they find it to make an appointment, so they put it off even longer. Park Slope Dentistry Seventh Avenue is a “no judgement” office because we understand how scary it can be for some people to visit the dentist, especially after a long time away. What’s most important now is not the cleanings you missed, but that you take an active role in the future of your teeth. Whether it’s been six months or six years (or more), we are here to help you take control of your oral health.


What does the dental exam include?

A comprehensive dental exam will check the health of your gums, the strength of your tooth structure and look for issues related to teeth grinding. It also includes an oral cancer screening that feels like a short face massage, and of course x-rays to make sure there aren’t any problems like decay hiding inside your teeth. 


How long does a new patient exam last?

You can expect your new patient exam to last about an hour and twenty minutes.


Why are X-rays necessary?

A decaying tooth often gives no signs of a problem until it gets so bad that it causes you serious pain or even tooth loss. X-rays allow us to discover little problems in teeth now, before they become big painful problems later.  Would you rather have a small filling now or a root canal later?


Is the radiation from dental X-rays safe?

Modern, digital dental x-rays have very low levels of radiation. You’re actually exposed to more radiation on a 2 hour commercial airplane flight than you are from digital dental x-rays (yes, flying in the air exposes you to radiation, but the levels are so low that they’re also not dangerous). The technician taking your x-rays leaves the room because they could be seeing over 10 patients in one day, and over many years that level of exposure can add up. But as a patient, you’re only getting x-rays every once in awhile, so the lead apron is more than enough to protect you.
