How can we help you?
We know that when you are looking for a new dental office, you have many questions about what it will be like as a patient in our practice.
Please feel free to browse some of the most common questions here, and if you do not see your question listed or you just want more information, please give us a call.
We serve many working families that want to utilize their hard-earned benefits and still get great care. We not only provide high-quality dentistry, but we try to make it as easy as possible for our patients to have treatment in our office. That is why we accept most major forms of dental insurance.
Dental insurance can help cover some of the expenses related to necessary dental care, but each plan is different. Because of the thousands of different plans and coverage variations, the best way to find out if your appointment will be covered is to give us a call. One of our helpful team members can look into your specific plan and estimate your out-of-pocket expenses.
Sometimes, dental insurance does not cover every procedure. In the event that you have out-of-pocket expenses, we do offer financing options so that you can have the treatment you need and break down the payments over time. Some of our options also have interest-free plans.
Your dental care is an investment, and we strive to make the financial piece of your treatment easy by avoiding surprises. We are straightforward with our fees and can help you make arrangements prior to your appointment so you have one less thing to worry about.
It can be tough to know when to pick up the phone and make a call when it comes to your oral health. If you are having a dental emergency in Montrose, CO and have questions about whether an emergency appointment will be necessary or not, you can just pick up the phone and give us a call. We can ask questions and evaluate your condition to determine a course of action to protect and restore your health.
A good rule of thumb is to call us anytime something breaks or you experience pain. Many times, acting fast in these situations can improve your chances of a full recovery without a dental extraction.

Pain is an indication that something is wrong – often an infection. Pain may begin slowly and gradually progress, causing you to lose sleep, reduce your ability to concentrate, and even miss work or school.
We are here when you need us most. Dr. Ken Cory saves time in his schedule, so that he can address emergency situations quickly – often on the same day. We welcome patients of all ages and levels of health. Contacting us quickly may help save your tooth and prevent additional oral health conditions.
We recommend regular exams and professional dental cleaning appointments so that you never have to encounter a dental emergency, but we know that sometimes the unexpected happens. Whether you bit into something and cracked a tooth or you have unexplained dental pain, we can help restore your dental health.
At Mountain West Smiles, we encourage you to contact our office at the first signs of a dental emergency. If you have sudden pain, sensitivity, or if you break a tooth, calling us right away will allow us to get you taken care of more quickly.
Transparency Is Key!
When you contact us, give us as much information about your dental emergency as possible. Where is the pain located? What is the location of the affected tooth? If you lost a crown or other dental restoration, do you still have it? What were you doing when the emergency occurred? Giving us as much information as possible will help us determine the next step for your treatment.
Once you have a conversation with one of our team members or with Dr. Ken Cory, we might recommend an emergency exam in our Montrose dental office. At your exam, we will diagnose your condition and restore your comfort.
