Frequently Asked Questions

I am afraid of the dentist! What do you suggest?

BA-dentist provides oral sedation for patients just like you who are struggling with dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry offers a higher level of relaxation than more traditional methods such as nitrous oxide, and patients who’ve used oral sedation sometimes say they can’t even remember their dental care visit!

Will you provide dental care for my entire family?

We get a kick out of treating several generations of the same family, and we offer a range of services to make this possible. From children’s dentistry to restorative dentistry, we provide dental care that’s appropriate for individuals from age three to age 93. For families in Broken Arrow, Jenks, and Bixby, BA-dentist offers affordable dental care solutions for most oral health problems.

When do you like for children to have their first dental visit?

At BA-dentist, we prefer to see your children once their teeth have begun to erupt. Many children will be best prepared to begin children’s dentistry care around age three, but the ADA recommends that children begin earlier, around age one. At the very least, your child should be brought in by age three for their first appointment, at which time we’ll perform a basic dental exam and check to make sure their teeth are developing properly. If you notice any problems with your child’s oral development, please contact our Broken Arrow dental office for an appointment. Dr. Gentling is known for his excellent children’s dental care.
