We offer a comprehensive list of services, plenty of advanced technology, a warm, comforting patient atmosphere, convenient payment options, and much more for people of all ages and their loved ones. We look forward to getting to know you too! Contact us today to schedule a visit.

Do you see children?

Definitely! Dr. Douglas Leigh and the rest of our team have years of experience working with younger patients, and we understand how to help them stay calm and relaxed throughout their appointment. Children’s dentistry services like dental sealants and fluoride treatment will help their growing smiles stay strong, and we’ll be sure to watch out for any developmental concerns that need attention as well.

Do I have to wait multiple appointments to receive a new dental crown?

Not at all. With state-of-the-art CEREC technology, the process of designing, creating, and placing a new, custom restoration can be completed in just one appointment, with no temporary crowns or “goopy” impression materials required.  Instead, patients can leave that same day with improved oral health and a stronger, more beautiful smile!

I’m experiencing a lot of jaw and facial pain lately. What could the cause be?

While we can’t offer a concrete diagnosis without inspecting your condition in person, significant jaw and facial pain is a common sign of TMJ disorder, a potentially debilitating condition that’s caused by misaligned jaw joints. If this is the case, South Hadley office can provide occlusal splint therapy or occlusal adjustment treatment in order to correct the problem and help you get back to living your best, pain-free life.

What are my options for replacing missing teeth?

In most cases, Dr. Leigh recommends dental implants as the ideal way to rebuild teeth in a healthy, aesthetically pleasing, and long-lasting fashion. Dental bridges are also available as a fixed option, while patients looking for something more affordable and convenient may prefer a traditional full or partial denture.

Of course, it’s important to remember that no one tooth replacement option is right for every single patient. That’s why we ask that patients with one or more gaps in their smile visit our office for an in-depth consultation. During this time, Dr. Leigh will closely inspect your smile and current level of oral health, discussing your needs with you and offering personalized recommendations.

Will you see emergency cases?

We do! Here in South Hadley, MA, our dental team will make every effort to see your emergency case as soon as possible, and if you’re unable to reach our office right away for whatever reason, we can also provide guidance over the phone for how to best manage and/or stabilize your condition. If you’re suffering from significant oral bleeding or a badly injured jaw, proceed to your nearest emergency room.

Do you take my insurance?

At Newton Street Dental, we’re in-network provides for most BlueCross BlueShield and Delta Dental plans. We also accept all PPO plans and will personally prepare and file the necessary forms in order to help you receive the insurance benefits you’re entitled to.
