Frequently Asked Questions

We know you've heard it before – you need to brush and floss twice a day. Dentists have been telling patients this as long as there have been dentists and patients.

At Pruce Dental, we can't overstate the importance of a conscientious routine of oral hygiene to maintain excellent dental health. But it is essential to take all the proper steps to make sure you get the most out of your daily routine.

Brush and floss twice a day - Cleaning your teeth frequently helps prevent the buildup of harmful plaque and bacteria on your teeth. Plaque can lead to gum disease, gingivitis, and tooth decay.

Replace your toothbrush every two to three months - Changing your toothbrush on a regular basis keeps the bristles firm making them more effective at removing plaque. An old, worn out toothbrush isn't doing much to clean your teeth, and it could be collecting bacteria, so change it every three months.

Stay current with routine exams and cleanings - Brushing and flossing at home gets only half the job done. Professional dental cleanings every six months are necessary no matter how well you brush and floss.

Your oral health is intimately connected to your overall well-being, so it's crucial to protect it to any extent you can. Oral hygiene is the first step towards a healthy disease-free mouth. If you're due for a professional cleaning, please contact our Washington, PA dental office for an appointment.


At Pruce Dental, we do our best to make high-quality dental care available to everyone, regardless of financial considerations.

In the first place, the treatment you need may be much more affordable than you might think. Dr. Pruce will always recommend the most conservative and affordable options that improve the health of your smile.

We work with a wide range of dental insurances, but unfortunately, insurance usually doesn’t cover the full cost of treatment. This is why we also offer convenient financing options that allow you to get the care you need when you need it.

Both CareCredit and Lending Club Patient Solutions are options that work like credit cards for your healthcare. Simply choose a monthly repayment amount that fits your budget. Then keep up with payments and pay off the balance within the agreed time period (usually between 6 to 18 months), and you won’t be charged any interest.

If you are a senior over 60, you will receive a 10% discount when you pay in full at the time of service. Of course, we are also pleased to accept all major credit cards.

Please don’t let worry about finances interfere with your oral health. Just let us know what your situation is, and we will do our best to find the solution that fits your needs.

Nitrous oxide is an odorless gas that's mixed with oxygen and has been used in dentistry since the mid-1800s. It is a mild form of sedation and is extremely helpful for dental patients who suffer from anxiety during their visits. Nitrous is safe – in fact, it is safe enough to use for children.

There are many benefits to using nitrous oxide. We administer it through a comfortable nasal mask, so all you have to do is relax and breathe normally. Your trained dental team will carefully monitor your comfort level during treatment and adjust the delivery of gas to meet your needs.

Patients at our Washington, PA dental office like nitrous oxide because it works quickly, and you will feel the calming effects in moments. Nitrous oxide won't put you to sleep, but you will feel drowsy and relaxed, and the activity around you will fade into the background.

Nitrous is an excellent choice for our busy patients because its effects wear off as soon as we stop administering it. You will be able to resume all your usual daily activities as soon as you leave our office.

At Pruce Dental, your safety is our top concern. We adhere strictly to established standards like proper ventilation and work practices to reduce the concentration of nitrous oxide in our treatment rooms.

If you would like to learn more about the benefits of nitrous oxide, please give us a call!
