“This is THE best place to go for dental care in Springfield. I waited for very little time before I was taken back to the exam room, and a dental assistant took my x-rays and other required pictures. She made the process fun and easy and everything went smoothly. The dentist was VERY nice, and very professional. She was honest and straightforward, which I appreciate. Overall, you can tell that the staff are well trained, knowledgeable, and very experienced.” Max R., Lake in the Hills, IL

Afraid of the Dentist? You’ve Found the Right Place.

At Advanced Dental Care of Springfield, our team understands how difficult it can be to overcome dental phobia. Our patients’ comfort is always a top priority, and we help them receive the care they need – from preventive care to emergency dentistry – smoothly with the help of sedation dentistry. These calming techniques can reduce negative feelings and create a sense of genuine relaxation – in fact, most of our patients don’t even remember much about the treatment experience afterwards.

Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

At Advanced Dental Care of Springfield, we want our patients to be fully informed about their oral health. Should you have any questions or concerns about your care, we encourage you to reach out to us. Our team will happily address all your inquiries! Of course, we understand the value of personal research. That’s why we've compiled answers to some frequently asked questions we receive. After reviewing the information below, we hope to empower you to make informed decisions about your dental care.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

If you experience a dental emergency (i.e., a lost tooth or damaged restoration), your first course of action should be to contact us. We prioritize same-day appointments to address your issue promptly.

However, if your dental emergency involves a life-threatening situation like impaired breathing or severe injury, it's advised to seek immediate help at the nearest emergency room. While they may not have specialized dental equipment, they can stabilize your condition until you can receive the necessary care from us.

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?

Finding the right dentist requires you to consider various factors. First, you need to determine the type of practice you need. Whether it's cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, or gum disease treatment, look for a dentist with expertise in your required treatment area. Be sure to consider other aspects such as location, office hours, and insurance acceptance.

In addition to online research, you may want to schedule consultations with multiple practices. This allows you to meet potential dentists face-to-face, ask questions, and gauge if they're the right fit for your oral health needs and preferences.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup & Cleaning Cost in Springfield?

The cost of a dental checkup and cleaning in Springfield can vary based on several factors, including the specific dental office, the complexity of the cleaning needed, and whether you have dental insurance coverage. On average, however, a routine checkup and cleaning typically ranges from $100 to $300 without insurance. It's recommended to contact our office directly to inquire about an accurate price estimate.

What to Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Focusing on preventive dental care is key to keeping your expenses low. Prevention is more cost-effective than treating oral health problems later. Investing in regular checkups and cleanings now can save you from expensive restorative treatments down the line. While dental insurance can help, we also offer third-party financing. These plans allow you to split up the total cost of your care into manageable monthly payments, ensuring you stay within your budget.
