Do you accept new patients?
New patients are always welcome.
How many times per year should we do a dental check-up?
The number of annual examinations depends on the particular needs of each patient. L’Ordre des dentistes du Québec recommends one visit every six months. During an examination, the dentist may change the frequency of visits, if necessary.
At what age should I bring my child to the first dental examination?
The first visit to the dentist can be done as soon as the first teeth appear, or
later in the next six months, around the age of one. However, you must bring
your child to the dentist without waiting, regardless of his age, if you suspect a
What kind of radiography is used at VMR Dental Health?
We use digital X-rays. Compared to traditional film radiography, digital radiography exposes the patient to much less radiation and exposed time. Digital devices are more sensitive and more efficient, so they produce 70% to 90% less radiation than traditional devices. Images are available immediately and in a larger format, which speeds up procedures and makes diagnosis more accurate. It is not necessary to use polluting chemicals to develop and fix the films, nor plastic to print them neither.
How are you protecting us from x-rays?
Each operating room is equipped with a digital X-ray unit that significantly reduces radiation and is more environmentally friendly. In addition, we protect you with a lead apron.
What is the difference between home bleaching, with a product bought in a store and whitening at the dentist?
Products sold in stores are not all equal and safe, so they do not always produce the expected results. Whitening toothpastes have very little, if any, effect. The store-bought kits contain a powerful bleaching component that can cause side effects. They can cause the leak of the chemical agent in your mouth. The dentist uses a suitable whitening agent and is trained to control side effects. You are better protected! In addition, products at the dental office produce better results.
How can I pay my bill?
After each treatment session, the fee must be paid in full by the patient. For your convenience, we accept visa, master card, and all debit cards.
Can you electronically submit my claims to the company insurance?
We will be more than happy to submit them electronically at your request at no charge. Usually, between 1 to 3 business days, you will be refunded according to your contract. The treatment plan and the estimate for the different treatments are also offered for free.
Do you have special case financing?
Yes, a financial agreement can be considered during major treatments.
Can we call to find out the cost by telephone?
A dentist has the discretion not to disclose the rates of the treatments by telephone. Since each patient is different, it is best to make an appointment so that a complete diagnosis can be made. In doing so, the cost of the desired dental care can be determined based on the patient’s current oral health status.
I have an appointment but I cannot made it; what should I do?
If possible, we ask you to cancel the appointment at least 48 hours in advance. It is therefore important that you contact the clinic to let us known that you will not be there on time. Our secretary will then give you another appointment.
