We do not accept HMO dental insurance. The reason being that HMO insurances assign you a provider and we feel that, that is very restrictive. You should have the option to choose who you want to see.

What if I don't have insurance?

It is not necessary to have insurance for you to be treated. You may proceed a la carte but we do recommend a comprehensive plan of action. We do offer a new patient special for the first visit (exam, xrays, cleaning, and consultation) for $185. If you are going to be getting dental insurance in the near future, please consult with us so that we can help you choose the best option. You don't want to be having tooth pain and find out that you have no coverage!

Is the office current and up to date?

Yes! This is a brand new office with all equipment brand new. Come see for yourself and experience the most luxurious apricot dental chairs ever! They are super cushy and comfortable. Not a single complaint yet. We splurged on these because we felt like it was very "LIC". Our color scheme is Apricot, Dove White, and Silver Leaf. Get your teeth whitening in style~

What do you mean by a cloud based office?

We've gone nearly completely paperless because our practice management software is cloud based. All forms of communication are done online, including filling out any paperwork, settling invoices, and even appointment reminders. Therefore it is imperative that you have a working email! (Our software is hosted by amazon web services.)

What is the difference between an appointment and a reservation.

We believe that for a healthcare setting, reservations should be the norm and not appointments. Appointment - an arrangement to meet someone at a particular time and place. Reservation - an arrangement whereby something, especially a seat or room, is booked or reserved for a particular person. Some offices double or even triple book appointments into the same time slot but whenever you make a reservation such as for a room in a hotel or a table at a restaurant that never happens. Therefore, we will be implementing the reservation system. So on the day of, after checking in with the front you can walk right into your reserved chair. Subsequently we had to rename our "waiting room" to "reception room" because no one waits. We hope that we're not the only dentists in LIC that feel this way!

What is the name of the office? I'm confused.

The actual name of this dental office is 1311 Jackson Ave Dental. Although at times, we may shorten it to just Jackson Ave Dental for convenience. The inspiration came from Eleven Madison Park. When people hear "Eleven Madison Park" they think of the restaurant and not the building. The differences between them and us is that we are not world renowned nor do we attract customers from around the world, so we added Dental at the end to distinguish ourselves from the building that we are part of. Aside from having a much more local reach, we wanted to give it a more neighborhood-like feel as well hence just the address in the name.
