Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any questions about Shore Dental’s available services, our open hours, or other aspects of our practice? We’re happy to provide plenty of answers. Please review our FAQs below, and don’t hesitate to contact us here in North Port if the information you’re looking for isn’t available here. Our team would be happy to help!

Do you see dental emergencies?

Yes! Our practice is open to walk-ins and urgent situations where patients need immediate care. We will always make time for you when you need it – no exceptions. If you’d like to learn more about what to do when facing a dental emergency, please visit our page on the topic.

Do you treat all ages?

Absolutely. Our practice offers a wide variety of services that can benefit children and adults alike, and we’re even happy to schedule convenient block appointments for whole families in order to maximize your valuable free time.

What is the best way to replace missing teeth?

Dr. Stein and Dr. Smith are likely to recommend dental implants as the premier solution to tooth loss because of their valuable oral health benefits, seamless aesthetic value, and exceptional longevity. Implants are the only reconstructive service that actually rebuilds the tooth’s root, which results in better oral function and a stable jawbone. However, our team also understands that this state-of-the-art service might not be the best fit for every patient in need. We will review all possible options in full with you during an initial consultation.

Visiting the dentist makes me nervous. Can you help?

Yes. Shore Dental offers sedation dentistry utilizing nitrous oxide as a safe, effective technique for helping patients reach a genuine state of relaxation during their appointments. Ensuring your comfort is a top priority for us!

What are your office hours?

Our practice is proud to offer extended morning, evening, and weekend hours that are unheard of in most other North Port dental practices. We are open from 7:00am-7:00pm Monday through Thursday, 7:00am-5:00pm on Friday, and 7:00am-2:00pm on every Saturday.

Do you take dental insurance?

Yes! We are in-network for multiple major insurance plans and will work closely with patients in order to help them receive their deserved reimbursements smoothly. Please visit our new patients page for more information, and don’t hesitate to call if you’re unsure whether or not we’ll accept your specific coverage.

I don’t have dental insurance. Do you offer any payment plans?

We work with Carecredit to arrange low-interest financing for patients and families in need. You can apply today here!
