Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How can we help you?

In the years she’s been practicing dentistry, Dr. Chinara Garraway has found that patients who are informed and proactive with their dental needs tend to experience better oral health than those who are not. That is why patient education is such an important part of the services we provide at Blissful Dental Spa.

We are always more than happy to take the time to explain why a problem is occurring, and why addressing it will benefit your oral health in the long term. But we also encourage your questions, because we can best serve you when we know what’s on your mind and what matters to you.

Below are some of the questions we hear most frequently from our patients, but we know you have unique needs and may not see your question listed here. If so, please don’t hesitate to call us at (850) 203-4143 or send an email using our convenient online contact form.

Other

We are in-network with most of the major insurance companies in the area and will file all insurances on behalf of our patients. 

No insurance? No problem!

At Blissful Dental Spa, we understand that many of our patients are uninsured but still deserve access to high-quality dentistry. For this reason, we are pleased to offer an in-house dental savings plan.

A dental savings program is a membership plan that’s designed to help you and your family get the critical preventive care you need like exams and cleanings and also defray the cost of services. For an annual fee, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that your family can receive the treatment they need even if you don’t have traditional dental insurance.

We want every experience you have with us to be as pleasant, comfortable, and stress-free as possible, starting with your first visit. When you arrive for your appointment at Blissful Dental Spa, a member of our front desk team will greet you warmly and check you in. 

Relax comfortably in our soothing reception area until it’s time for your appointment. You then will meet your hygienist who will get you settled in your treatment room and then check your gums and take x-rays if necessary.

Next, you will meet with Chinara Dr. Garraway who will perform a comprehensive exam, talk to you about your concerns, check the condition of your teeth, and note any areas that could require your attention. She will then discuss her findings with you, and if treatment is necessary, she will explain why and how it will benefit your oral health.

With your treatment plan in hand, we will schedule subsequent appointments as needed and discuss financing and insurance arrangements. Our team will do everything possible to make your treatment as affordable as possible, and we’ll explain all your options, so you know what to expect. We’re pleased to offer an in-house dental savings plan that includes complimentary preventive exams and cleanings and discounts on other services for a set annual fee.

Cosmetic Dentistry

At Blissful Dental Spa, we’ve seen the difference cosmetic dentistry can have on a person’s appearance and self-confidence. Dr. Chinara Garraway loves taking time with patients who want to make a change but aren’t sure where to start.

We recommend calling our Tallahassee dental office to arrange a smile consultation. Dr. Garraway will review your dental needs to determine if there’s any underlying decay or gum disease we need to address. We want your smile to be as healthy as possible before we begin any aesthetic makeover.

Dr. Garraway will ask you what it is that you don’t like about your smile so she can determine which treatment options might be right for you. She will explain these options in detail, answer all your questions thoroughly, and help you weigh the pros and cons of each. When you are fully informed, you are better equipped to make confident decisions about how your treatment should proceed.

If you want to improve your smile and need some guidance, please call our Tallahassee dental office to arrange a consultation. We look forward to meeting you and being part of your plan for a healthier, more attractive smile.

General Dentistry

The American Dental Association recommends preventive exams and dental cleanings twice a year. For most people, seeing us every six months is ideal for maintaining excellent oral health and addressing any problems in their earliest stages.

Staying current with these six-months dental exams at our Tallahassee dental office is critical and can save you and your family money in the long term. Let’s say you have a tiny cavity. It’s still small, so there’s no pain yet, and since you feel fine, you skip your routine exam and cleaning.

But by the time you start to feel discomfort and call us for an appointment, the decay has already spread. If you wait too long to see us, what was originally a minor problem that we could have addressed with a small filling may now require a root canal to resolve.

At Blissful Dental Spa we provide a different kind of dentistry. Our team believes that we can make your experience with us so pleasant and stress-free that you’ll never want to skip an appointment again.

Our dental office is luxuriously appointed with stress-reducing amenities like pillows and blankets and services like paraffin wax treatments and relaxing massages that make it feel much more like a spa than a dental office!

If it’s time to schedule your next dental exam and dental cleaning in Tallahassee, please call us to arrange an appointment at your convenience.

At Blissful Dental Spa, we believe in stress-free dentistry. Dr. Chinara Garraway is an experienced dentist in Tallahassee who understands the anxiety that many of our patients face and takes the time to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible.

We have designed our spa-like office with your comfort in mind, and you will notice the difference as soon as you enter our reception area. Serene surroundings, soothing decor, calming music, and our attentive staff await to ensure a visit that is more pleasant than anything you’ve ever experienced in a dental office.

We’ll get you settled in your chair with a pillow and blanket and even offer you a paraffin wax hand treatment. All of our treatment rooms are equipped with 32-inch TVs for your further comfort and enjoyment. And at a time like this, wouldn’t a soothing massage feel great? Well, at Blissful Dental Spa, we can make it happen!

You can choose a 15-minute chair massage with our Certified Massage Therapist before or after your treatment for a nominal fee.

If dental anxiety is a problem for you, Dr. Garraway can prescribe a calming sedative for you to take before you arrive for your appointment. You will feel drowsy and relaxed, but you will be fully conscious and able to communicate with your team as needed.

At Blissful Dental Spa, we want you to be comfortable, so please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help make your experience more pleasant. Please call our Tallahassee dental office today to arrange an appointment to see what makes us unique.
