Do you accept new patients?
Yes, we are always happy to welcome new members into our dental family from all around the Bangor including our neighbors from Winterport, Orono, Brewer, Orrington, Holden, and adjacent communities.
We know that each member of your family needs special care depending on what stage of life they're in. For instance, a child requires different services and attention than a family member in his or her elder years. At Maine Family Dental, we offer the right care for every family member as he or she progresses through each stage of life. Our skilled dentist is knowledgeable when it comes to treatment for all ages.

Are you interested in improving the appearance of your smile? At Maine Family Dental, we offer the latest in cosmetic dentistry. A great-looking smile can boost your confidence, improve your self-esteem, and help you feel great about your appearance! Tell us what your goals are, and we’ll be happy to recommend the best ways for you to achieve your perfect smile. We’ll work with you to develop a comprehensive cosmetic treatment plan.
Cosmetic dentistry at our Bangor dental office includes options such as teeth whitening, veneers and Lumineers, and cosmetic dental fillings
How often do I need dental exams and cleanings?
For most adults, we encourage appointments at our Bangor dental office every six months so that we can thoroughly examine your mouth for any potential problems. If you are over age 30, one of our main concerns is the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease. This is important to us because of the prevalence of gum disease and the potentially severe health consequences associated with it.
If our dental team finds evidence of gum disease, we will provide appropriate gum treatments that may require more frequent teeth cleanings to control.
When should I bring my child for their first visit?
Children can be brought in for a visit as soon as their baby teeth start to come in. Our gentle team looks forward to getting to know little ones and helping them feel comfortable in the dentist’s chair.
We enjoy educating children about good dental health, and we provide services like teeth cleaning and early orthodontic treatments. We also offer “no shot” laser dentistry options, which are particularly useful in treating children.
What do I need to know about my first dental visit?
For your first visit, we recommend that you come equipped with information about your medical history. You can find the forms you need on our forms page. You may also want to bring a list of medications that you are taking, and be prepared to answer questions about your health. Knowledge about your medical history can help us understand how to treat your body with overall wellness as our ultimate goal.
After being cared for by our gentle, thorough dentists, you'll want to become a patient for life - and we wouldn't have it any other way! Schedule your new patient consultation today by giving us a call at our Bangor dental office at 1-207-947-1166.
What payment options are available?
At Maine Family Dental Practice, our priority is providing you with the care and treatment that you need - from routine teeth cleaning services to restorative treatment. Accordingly, we offer a variety of payment options.
You can pay using cash or any major credit card including MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover. For your convenience, we also accept CareCredit.
Do you accept my dental insurance?
We work with almost every type of dental insurance at our Bangor dental office and are a preferred provider for Northeast Delta Dental. This allows us the ability to provide you with the care you deserve without being held back by the dictates of insurance companies. If you are not sure whether or not we accept your insurance, don't hesitate to ask! Together, we will determine the best way for you to get the treatment you need - while fitting payments into your lifestyle and budget.
If you have any questions about your insurance or how to finance your dental work, don't hesitate to contact our dental office and we will be glad to help!
What do recent changes in insurance policy mean for my dental coverage?
According to projections provided by the American Dental Association, the Affordable Care Act may result in an additional 8.7 million children gaining extensive dental coverage. About 17.7 million adults could gain some type of dental coverage.
Residents of Maine have been allowed to purchase health insurance plans through an online "exchange" since October 2013. The Affordable Care Act has changed the standards of acceptable dental offerings for each of these plans.
For more information on how the changes in health care legislation affect your life, you may want to visit the Maine Public Broadcasting website at mpbn.net and also the American Dental Association's section regarding the Affordable Care Act at http://www.ada.org/news/8935.aspx.
If you have any questions about your specific plan, contact our Bangor dental office, and we will go over your benefits with you!
