Your question may be addressed here.


Q: What Are My Payment Options?


We accept many kinds of insurance, including plans from local employers like Good Samaritan Hospital and the Vincennes Community and North Knox school systems. We are a preferred provider for Delta Dental and Health Resources. If you don’t have insurance or have costs not covered by insurance, we accept financing from CareCredit and Compassionate Finance. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards. Finally, we can offer an in-house payment plan.

Q: Should I Get Dental Implants or Dentures?


To determine which teeth replacement is right for you, we’ll take many factors into consideration including your oral health, overall health, budget, and lifestyle. Dr. Stephen Williams has vast experience with both dentures and dental implants, so he can help you make the right choice. In general, implants look, feel, and function more like natural teeth than conventional dentures. However, they are more costly and require surgical placement of implants. Many denture wearers are happier with their dentures when they are attached to implants.

Q: Do You Offer Orthodontics Options in Bicknell?


You can get Six Month Smiles in Bicknell. These braces straighten your teeth in as few as three months, much faster than conventional braces, since they focus only on the teeth that show when you smile. The average treatment time is six months – as you can tell from their name. They also have clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, so they are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces.

To make an appointment at Stephen K. Williams DDS & Associates, call (812) 220-0636. Consultations are free.

Q: When Should I Schedule My Child’s First Dental Appointment?


The earlier you introduce your child to good oral hygiene habits and routine dental care, the better. Generally, you’ll want to start bringing them to the dentist around their first birthday.

Around that age, we focus on what we call “happy visits.” That just means they get to meet our friendly staff, tour our office, and just have fun.

When your child is about five years old, we’ll start giving them a dental cleaning and exam on a regular basis.

Give us a call if you have more questions about your child’s dental health!

Q: Do You Treat Dental Emergencies?


Yes! We want our patients to know that we care about them all the time, not just when they’re here for a routine appointment. That’s why we offer same-day appointments for your dental emergencies in Bicknell, IN.

If you have a toothache, broken tooth or restoration, or some other urgent dental problem, call us right away at (812) 220-0636 for assistance.

Q: Can You Help Ease My Dental Anxiety?



We make your comfort a top priority because we understand how essential it is to maintain the routine appointments you need for better oral and overall health.

That’s why we offer dental anxiety relief, including sedation options and various comfort amenities.

Q: Is a Custom Mouthguard Better Than One From a Store?


Custom athletic mouthguards fit you perfectly with no need for a frustrating “boil-and-bite” process. They provide better protection, and they can even be made to accommodate braces or similar orthodontia. Our team can also provide you with a custom-made mouthguard that prevents you from grinding your teeth in your sleep, a habit that can cause jaw pain and damage tooth enamel.

With their superior fit, both kinds of mouthguards are more comfortable than ones purchased from a store.

Q: How Often Should My Teeth Be Examined and Cleaned?


We recommend visiting our Bicknell office for an exam and cleaning every six months. With this frequency, our dentist can find small issues and treat them before they become bigger problems. We will also remove the plaque buildup you may have missed while brushing and flossing at home, to keep your mouth free of disease.
