Frequently Asked Questions

Are you accepting new patients?

Yes, Drs. Flaherty & Stacey are currently accepting new patients.  Please call our office at 828-252-3591 to schedule an appointment or meet for a consultation.

How often should I have my teeth cleaned and examined?

It is most often recommended to have a dental cleaning and exam twice a year. Although, after ones initial cleaning and exam it will be determined by both the dental hygienist and dentist how often a patient would need to have their teeth cleaned. There are circumstances where patients require a dental cleaning more than twice a year to maintain optimal gingival health.

Do you accept dental insurance?

Our Doctors are in network with Delta Dental Premier and all others are considered out of network.  As a courtesy we will file your insurance and accept benefits unless your insurance requires payment to you. 

Do I need to have my records transferred from my previous dentist?

Patients who have seen a previous dentist within the past several years should contact that dental office. We prefer for any prior x-rays to be mailed or e-mailed to our office prior to a patient’s first appointment date. It is important that the doctor has any records in order to completely evaluate a patient’s dental health.
