Common Questions

Will the treatment be painful?
We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. If treatment is needed, we will inject a small amount of anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-3 hours.

Will I need to return to your office for follow-ups after the procedure is finished?
Yes, for most root canal treatments, we recommend that patients return to the office 1 year after the procedure was finished. Our office will send a reminder notice to you when you are due for a recall appointment.

Do you accept my insurance?
We accept all PPO dental insurance plans. Please do not hesitate to call our office if you have any questions.

What forms of payments do you accept?
We accept Cash, Visa, and MasterCard.

Do you have any type of financing available?
Our office accepts Care Credit. You can learn more about Care Credit at or by calling their toll free at (800) 365-8295. We accept Care Credit’s 6 months at zero interest plan. We do not offer any in-office financing or payment plans.

Are you currently accepting new patients?
Yes, we are accepting new patients with a referral form from your general dentist. Please contact our office for an appointment.

Do you treat children?
Yes. Many of the children we see have had traumatic injuries from a fall or sport injury. There are specific protocols that must be followed to get good treatment results with traumatized teeth, and Dr. Lu has special training in these protocols.
