Examination and Cleaning

Academy Dental Care Reception Area - Dentist Solana Beach

Welcome to Academy Dental Care, make yourself at home!

We ask that you complete a health history form before arriving, which can be found on our website. If you’ve had dental X-rays taken recently, you can bring them in with you. You’ll meet our assistant Shelly and Shannah, who works at the front office. We’ll update any X-rays and talk to you about your health history.

Shannah will verify your insurance coverage while our dental hygienist cleans and evaluates your teeth. You’ll meet Dr. Belderes for an examination. We’ll address any concerns you have and answer your questions. If further treatment is needed, we’ll put together a plan and discuss future visits.

A dental cleaning and examination take about an hour.

Payment Information

We accept and are preferred providers for many insurance plans. If you aren’t using insurance coverage for your visit, in-house payment plans or CareCredit® are available.

Making You Feel Relaxed

We’ll take the time to understand your concerns and discuss any past anxieties you may have felt about seeing the dentist.

By addressing your fears, we can work on overcoming them. We’ll talk you through the visit, showing you what we’re going to do with a gentle touch. Though you may have had a negative experience before at the dentist, we find that we can help retrain your brain to understand that your appointments with us are different.

Some of our patients require a form of sedation, which we are happy to provide.

Contact us today and book your appointment using our $99 new patient special! Flexible hours are available for your convenience.
