What Others Are Saying

“Dr. Song has been my dentist for a few years now, first in Boston and now in his new office in Burlington. Hands down, Dr. Song is the best dentist I have ever been to. He and his staff are incredibly kind, he never pushes treatment you don't need, he talks you through all your options, and he gives excellent dental advice. Still no cavities! His Burlington office is great too. Convenient location and plenty of parking. If you're looking for a new dentist I definitely recommend giving Derek Song a try.”

“Dr. Song is wonderful! He put in bonding for a chipped tooth a few years ago and it's still in place, lasting much longer than bonding I've had done with other dentists. Dr. Song is knowledgeable, caring, and makes you feel at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new dentist.”

Feel free to give us a call if your question isn’t listed as well!

How do I find the best place to get dental work done?

When looking for a dentist, it’s essential to start with recognizing what is most important to you. While this includes finding a dentist that you feel comfortable visiting, it also means choosing a dental office near you that welcomes your insurance, fits into your budget, and operates during hours that meet your schedule. You’ll also want to know what type of care you need. Will most of the services you pursue be preventive, restorative, or cosmetic in nature? We’re always happy to show you around the office and answer your questions if you’re thinking about choosing us for all your dental needs.

How can I get a same-day appointment with a dentist?

If you’d like to get an appointment scheduled the same day that you call, it’s important that you call our office directly instead of sending an email. This ensures your needs are attended to quickly, rather than the next day. Calling us will also connect you with one of our team members who are more than happy to write your concerns and get you the best care possible. We’ll do everything we can to get you seen the same day that you call.

What is the best way to find a dentist who does dental implants?

Dental implants are widely considered to be one of the best ways to replace missing teeth, but it is important to find a dentist you prefer before completing treatment. Dental implants occur in two stages. This includes the placement of the implant and the restoration that attaches to the top of the post. At our office, Dr. Dempsey and Dr. Tang, our dedicated periodontist and endodontist, hold the expertise to perform treatment from start-to-finish. By keeping the entire dental implant process in-house, we can make the tooth replacement process simpler and more convenient.

How much does a dental checkup and cleaning cost in Burlington?

Costs for basic preventive dentistry services like checkups and cleanings can vary based on location as well as the dental health of the patient to begin with. On average, checkups and cleanings usually fall between $200 and $350. In most cases, preventive checkups include an exam, cleaning, X-rays, and an oral cancer screening. If you have dental insurance, fees for the checkup are negotiated by your insurance company with the dentist.

What do you do if you can’t afford a dentist?

Dentistry is about prevention, and one of the most effective ways to cover preventive forms of dental care, including checkups, cleanings, and exams, is through dental insurance. Our dental office accepts plans from many of the nation’s top providers and we are in-network with several major insurance plans. However, if you do not have dental insurance, we have in-house membership plans, both for individual patients and employers, to help make your dentistry more affordable.
