At Dolby Family Dentistry, your dental health is of utmost importance to us. We will propose a treatment plan that gets you on the road to healthy teeth. We will give you an estimate of what your portion will be at the time of service. Dolby Family Dentistry is contracted with most dental PPOs.
Our office will do a courtesy insurance verification to get an estimate of your dental benefits. In the end, the patient is responsible for the entire cost of treatment. Your insurance is a contract between your employer and your insurance company. They may have clauses and exclusions that we are not privy to.
For your convenience, we accept:
Flex saving account cards are also welcomed. Please call our office if you have any questions or concerns.
How many dentists do you know that will compensate you for referrals? We do! Qualified referrals include your friends, co-workers, and even your family members. Please inquire in the office.
Dolby Family Dentistry believes that the most important thing is to follow through on improving the health and look of your smile.

If you have an emergency after hours, please call the emergency number: (830) 438-2121.
Begin by cleaning around the sore tooth meticulously. Using warm salt water, rinse the mouth to displace any food trapped between teeth. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you use aspirin on the aching tooth or on the gum. In the event of facial swelling, apply a cold compress to the area. For temporary pain relief, acetaminophen is recommended. See a dentist as soon as possible.
Ice can be applied to any bruised areas. For bleeding, apply firm (but gentle) pressure with sterile gauze or a clean cloth. If the bleeding does not stop with pressure or continues after 15 minutes, go to an emergency room.
Remove a broken appliance only if it comes out easily. If it is lodged or painful to remove, cover any protruding edges with wax, cotton balls, gauze or chewing gum. DO NOT REMOVE any wire caught in the gums, cheek or tongue; see a dentist immediately. Emergency attention is usually not required for loose or broken appliances that cause no discomfort.
Rinse the area with warm water. Put a cold compress over the facial area of the injury. Recover any broken tooth fragments. Get immediate dental attention.
Recover the tooth, making sure to hold it by the crown (top) and not the root end. Rinse, but do not clean or handle the tooth more than necessary. Reinsert the tooth in the socket and hold it in place using a clean piece of gauze or cloth. If the tooth cannot be reinserted, carry it in a cup containing milk or water. Because time is essential, see a dentist immediately.
