"Had my first appointment at Bowdental this morning. Wonderful experience. Going to the dentist has always been a high anxiety experience for me. That will not be the case when I visit Bowdental in the future. I have full confidence that they will address my future dental needs with the same friendly, professional, caring and personalized approach that I experienced today."

"Staff members greeted me warmly; explained their actions, observations and recommendations without prompt; took time to solicit and address my questions; and even included me in the friendly office banter (as much as I could be with instruments in my mouth). I left with a sunnier smile and a bounce in my step. It may sound strange to say but I am looking forward to my next visit!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Keeping our patients well-informed about dentistry and our office is all part of the job! Below are several examples of dentistry-related questions that we have often heard from our patients as well as brief-but-informative answers. Do you have any dental inquiries that aren’t addressed below? Our team will be more than happy to help! Please give us a call today if there is anything you want to know about dental care.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

Any life-threatening issues should be handled by an emergency room, but the doctors there won’t be equipped or trained to handle oral health problems. You should call our practice immediately if you have a toothache, knocked-out tooth, or another kind of dental emergency. We’ll set up a same-day appointment for you whenever possible, and one of our team members will give you first-aid advice so that you can keep your smile safe until you get to our office.

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

First consider what you think the most important factors for choosing a dentist are, such as whether they take your insurance, where they’re located, and their dedication to safety and cleanliness. You should also think about the kind of dental care you need, as certain dentists might be better choices for specific procedures based on their training.

Once you’ve come up with your criteria and found a practice that fits, you can read the dentist’s biography on their website to get a feel for what they’re like. You can also read online reviews to see what kind of experiences other patients have had at the practice.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup and Cleaning Cost in Evanston?

The location of the practice, your general dental health, and other factors can all affect the final cost of a routine dental checkup in cleaning. That said, the average across the United States is somewhere between $200 and $350. However, this is before taking dental insurance into account, as many dental plans will mostly or fully cover the cost of preventive care.

Our office is proud to be in-network with a variety of popular plans such as Aetna and Delta Dental. We can also help our patients explore other options for making their checkups more affordable, such as financing or our in-house membership plan.

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

If you have an urgent dental problem and want to schedule a same-day appointment with Dr. Bowden or Dr. Duarte, your best option is to call our office right away; an email is less likely to get an immediate response. Furthermore, a phone call will give our team a chance to ask questions about your situation so that we can figure out the best way to handle your care. If we decide a same-day appointment is necessary, we’ll focus on stopping any immediate pain, narrowing down the source of the problem, and putting together a plan for future treatment.
