At Lacquaniti Dental, we don’t believe in pressuring our patients to accept bloated treatment plans they don’t really need. Instead, the care process is always collaborative, with YOU leading the way at all times. Dr. Lacquaniti wants to hear all about any concerns or goals you have in mind before making personalized recommendations, and we won’t begin any actual procedures until you feel confident about what’s to come. Our available services cover a wide range, from family-friendly essentials to advanced tooth replacement!
We enjoy making important oral healthcare as convenient as possible by seeing you and your loved ones all in the same place – no extra traveling required!
When one or more teeth aren’t at their best, our team can help get them back on the right track with durable, lifelike, and long-lasting solutions.
Our team is proud to take care of friends and neighbors in ways that transcend the dental office! Dr. Lacquaniti regularly volunteers with St. Luke’s Dental Clinic and donates to local schools, food pantries, veteran charities, and much more.
Would you like to learn more about dentistry and how we approach it? Dr. Lacquaniti and our team are always happy to share our knowledge about the services we offer, the cost of care, and dentistry in general. Below, you will find answers to some of the questions that our patients often ask. If you do not see the information you were hoping for, please give us a call. We will be pleased to personally assist you.
It is almost always better to visit a dentist in Mt. Dora, rather than the local ER, for emergency dental care. The medical staff in hospitals do not have the training or equipment to address things like toothaches and chipped teeth. However, if you are bleeding uncontrollably from the mouth, have a high fever, or are experiencing other life-threatening symptoms along with your oral health problem, call 911 or head to the hospital right away. You can visit us later for follow up care.
For most oral health problems, your best course of action is to give us a call. We can usually see emergency patients on a same-day basis! Prior to your appointment, we will provide you with some tips for at-home care to manage your pain and minimize the damage to your smile.
First, you must define what you are looking for in a dentist. Are you primarily interested in a specific service? Do you have financial concerns? Is advanced technology important to you? Once you know what you want, you can do a Google search for “dentist near me.” Practice websites usually have much information about what they offer and their financial policies, as well as links to reviews from other patients. Once you find a few practices that look promising, you can call them to learn more before you request an appointment with the one that appeals most to you.
Without insurance, patients across the U.S. pay an average of $200 - $350 for a preventive appointment. That fee usually includes a checkup, cleaning, necessary X-Rays, and an oral cancer screening. If you do have insurance, up to 100% of the cost of your preventive care may be covered — which means you might not have to pay a dime out of pocket! Even though Lacquaniti Dental is not in-network with any insurance plans, we are happy to file claims for you and accept payment from most PPO plans.
Roughly one out of three dentists in the U.S. are female, and up to half of dental students are female. You have many options for skilled female dentists in our area! You can start your search by Googling “Female dentist near me.” Then, you can narrow down your choices according to other criteria that are important to you. Dr. Lacquaniti enjoys working with patients of various genders, ages, and backgrounds. She would love to meet you!
