Why Our Dental Patients Love Us

G Patton

Without any doubt this is a first rate establishment. Dr. Cornetta and the entire staff did an amazingly good job. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality work and a great environment with friendly and professional people. It was wonderful to deal with folks that so obviously care about your comfort and take pride in their work. A special shout out to Jessica who got me through my deep cleaning without a trace of discomfort.

Andy Babbitt

This was honestly the best experience at a dentist office I’ve had. Monique was hilarious and super sweet, and did a great (i.e. painless!) cleaning!! I also met Dr. Cornetta for the first time; he really made me feel like my time mattered, taking his time with an examination then going over everything with me. I never felt like he was in a hurry or rushed, which has so often been the case in my past experiences. I really appreciate the doctor and nurses making me feel welcome, comfortable and ease the whole time. I will absolutely be continuing with Dr. Cornetta and I highly recommend him if you’re looking for a great dentist.

At Woodside Dental Care, we prioritize patient care and strive to provide the best assistance possible. We encourage calls from patients and potential patients who have questions about our services.

However, we understand that some people like to do their research or may simply not have time to call. That’s why we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of the most frequently asked questions we encounter. If you don’t find what you’re looking for below, don’t hesitate to get in touch !

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

When faced with a dental emergency, the first step is to call our practice. Our dedicated team is here to assist you promptly and provide the necessary guidance. We offer same-day appointments to ensure you receive the urgent care you need.

It’s important to note that most emergency rooms are not equipped to handle dental emergencies, which is why it’s best to get in touch with our emergency dentist. Additionally, it's crucial to recognize that dental emergencies often indicate underlying dental issues. Regular visits to the dentist can help prevent future emergencies, saving you plenty of time and money in the long run.  

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

When searching for a dentist, you must first define your specific requirements and preferences. Consider what is important to you, such as welcoming your insurance/payment options, location, credentials, safety measures, cleanliness, and convenient hours. Additionally, it would help to identify the type of dental care you need. Are you looking for a dentist who specializes in pediatric dentistry, routine check-ups, cleanings, major restorative work, braces, or cosmetic procedures? Different dentists excel in specific areas, so finding the right match is vital.

Once you have a clear understanding of what you want, take the time to explore patient reviews and read the bios of the doctors and staff on the practice's website. These valuable resources can help you find a dentist who meets your established criteria. Look out for custom photos and videos, as they provide additional insights into the practice and its atmosphere.

How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with a Dentist?

The best way to get a quick response is by contacting our practice directly via phone rather than sending an email. A phone call allows us to better comprehend your situation and get you the care you need! In some cases, advanced treatments can even be performed during the same-day appointment.

When time is of the essence, rely on the effectiveness of a phone call to receive the immediate attention you seek. Our top priority is to address your dental concerns swiftly and efficiently!

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

Prevention is the cornerstone of dentistry, providing affordable and highly valuable benefits when collaborating with your dentist to prevent serious dental issues. Dental insurance serves as an effective tool to help cover dental care expenses. Be sure to take full advantage of this benefit if it's available to you!

Additionally, our practice offers an in-house membership plan to make your dental care more accessible and fit easily within your monthly budget. We can also help you sign up for third-party financing through CareCredit , which allows you to split up the total cost of your care into smaller monthly installments.
