Transformed Smiles & Changed Lives

“My dentist highly recommended Dr. Sanker. He cited him as being a very experienced and reputable cosmetic dentist and had witnessed the dramatic changes evident in the smile of Dr. Sanker’s patients. Dr. Sanker and his entire staff worked extraordinarily hard to make sure that I was comfortable at all times. I cannot even articulate the kindness and understanding I was shown by every single member of the dental practice. As Dr. Sanker had promised, my new smile was completed, and it was more than I ever could have imagined. The response by my friends and family has been amazing.”

“I have been a dental assistant for 25+ years, have worked for various dentists and temped for Dr. Sanker a few summers ago when one of his employees went on a long vacation. He is by far one of the top 2 dentists I have worked with. He is brilliant, a perfectionist, and has a kind, professional bedside manner with patients. I have found my dentist until he decides to retire! His office and staff are exceptionally nice and professional, also. In my opinion, he is the best in the area! He really cares about his work and uses the best products and dental labs, too.”

“For years I was really self-conscious about my smile. I felt like ‘snaggle-tooth’…there was a space between my 2 front teeth, and one tooth was longer than the other. Dr. Sanker performed a dental miracle by shaping and bonding my front teeth to give me the smile I have today. This procedure has also improved my bite. I am extremely pleased with the results of the bonding which was a fraction of the cost of porcelain veneers. I now have confidence in my smile!”

Dental FAQs Answered!

No two dentists are exactly alike, which is why it can feel a bit overwhelming to visit a dentist for the first time when you don’t know what to expect. If you have questions, feel free to contact our office and we’ll be more than happy to help. In the meantime, we have included some frequently asked questions that we often receive regarding visiting the dentist.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

Emergency dentistry is one of the most important types of dental care that we offer. After all, it helps our patients get out of pain and back to having healthy smiles. If you’re suffering from a dental emergency, try to remain calm and call us right away. More often than most, we’ll be able to schedule an appointment for you later that same day. Whether you have an excruciating toothache that requires root canal therapy, or a knocked-out tooth that needs replacing, our team is here to help.

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

We pride ourselves on offering quality dental care that is also affordable. That’s why we are in-network with Delta Dental Premier, which is one of the most popular dental insurance plans in the United States. However, if you have a different insurance plan, we’ll file claims on your behalf to maximize any benefits you may qualify for. If you’re uninsured, we offer a low-to-no interest financing option through CareCredit. This third-party company has helped countless patients across the country fit their healthcare into their budget.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup and Cleaning Cost in Lakewood, Dallas?

Because every single patient’s smile is different, we cannot provide an accurate cost estimate for a checkup and cleaning without knowing more information about your oral health. However, the vast majority of insurance policies will cover these appointments at 100%, making them very affordable if you have insurance. If you don’t, then you should know that the average cost of a dental checkup and cleaning in the United States is somewhere between $200 and $350. Keep in mind that these routine visits can prevent serious oral health problems down the road that require much more difficult and expensive treatments.

Can I Just Walk into a Dentist’s Office?

In most cases, no. At our office, we generally require appointments unless otherwise specified. The only exception would be in the case of dental emergencies, but we would still rather you give us a call and have us book a same-day appointment for you. Scheduled appointments are still necessary because they allow our dentists to prepare for your unique needs.
