Cosmetic Makeovers, My Philosophy

We realize there are many dental practices that aggressively pressure patients to obtain cosmetic dental work.  While we enjoy these makeovers and while we are very good at what we do, we have an even healthier respect for our patients and their desires.  Never will we pressure patients to obtain any care.  However, if a patient opens the conversation about a makeover or cosmetic dental care, we will gladly offer information for making an informed choice. In assisting patients with decisions upon cosmetic dentistry, we from the outset provide estimated costs, estimated time for completion, advantages of care, and disadvantages of

PPO, DMO, Managed Dental Care Plans: Our Philosophy

We Do Accept Many Insurance Plans Many of our patients have dental insurance.  We are pleased to help you in managing your claims.  We do accept payment, known as assignment of benefits,  from your insurance carrier.  By doing this we minimize the cash-outlay for our patients.  You will find that we do all we possibly can to provide an accurate claim in a timely manner to your insurance carrier.  You will also find that we “go the extra mile” to make sure your carrier is providing good service to you.  Our patients value the way we can obtain a quick

Looking for a Highly Reviewed, Highly Ranked, and Highly Rated Dallas Area Dentist?

Yes, we all want a dentist we can trust. However, in this current time, it can be so difficult to find a highly reviewed and highly rated dentist. In the past, dental offices used to be named after the dentist performing the care. This is what you will find with me; the name of my dental practice is “Mark A. Venincasa DDS.” Patients in my dental practice know what they are getting. They know we have no rotation of dentists. They know that I own my dental practice. They know that I am here pretty much 100% of the time

Another Effort to Combat This Pandemic: Dr. Venincasa Receives Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine

We have been following this novel coronavirus pandemic since March 2020. Dr. Venincasa has done much research on it and has been taking steps to minimize the effects of this virus on his dental practice and on the community. For instance, on January 15, 2021, Dr. Venincasa was able to obtain his first Pfizer vaccine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Plano, Texas, since he was an active participant in their volunteer department until the pandemic caused it to be inactive. With the hours of research that he has done, Dr. Venincasa has posted updates on our Facebook community page and on

The Best Dentists in Dallas: Difficulties in Finding One

Finding the best dentist is becoming more difficult for patients because the ownership of dental practices by the practicing dentist has been going down since 2005. As a result, more and more dental practices have different dentists staffing them. With this, when a dental practice is reviewed online, it may be difficult for patients to determine what dentist is associated with the reviews. This is not necessarily a new phenomenon. This has been more prevalent among physicians. I have noticed this myself, as several of my doctors no longer have such a large ownership stake in their practices. As a

Dental Insurance and Saving Money on Dentistry

Many patients think that going to a dental office that is listed on their dental insurance plan is going to save them money. This is understandable. These listed dental offices, in exchange for being listed and “preferred,” accept a significant hit to their profit margins due to fee contracts they sign with the insurance companies. Do you think this hit to their profit margins benefits you, and saves you money? We have had too many patients who have come to our office wanting a second opinion, because they were told they needed a “deep cleaning” for the first time ever,

Cosmetic Dentistry with a Smile Makeover: By An Award-Winning North Dallas Dentist

Many people want to enhance their image and their appearance. One of the ways this may be accomplished is with cosmetic dentistry. There are multiple ways cosmetic dentistry can be accomplished. It can be done by whitening teeth, by reshaping teeth, through orthodontic treatment, with dental bonding, or with porcelain veneers and crowns. In this case, excess gum was removed, and crowns were meticulously created to achieve an aesthetic and long-term functional result. There are many dentists who provide this service; however, you want to make sure a reputable dentist cares for your teeth. You have one set of teeth.

Finding an In-Network Dentist: Some Help

Many patients want to find a dentist within their network in order to perhaps save money. Their intent is indeed to save money. Are patients really saving money? Let’s digress a bit. We have all seen those Liberty Mutual commercials. In one of them, the policy owner complains that their other insurance company wants to reimburse them for “3/4” of the value of their car. The policy holder is complaining about that. The commercial leads us to sympathize with her. We sense and agree that it is not fair that the insurance company should reimburse the policy holder for 3/4

Choosing a Dentist: An Updated Perspective

Many patients find themselves in a situation of choosing a dentist. They may have moved into a new community. Perhaps these patients changed their insurance plan or employer. Having to choose a dentist is not a unique situation these days. This is indeed an important decision. Most all patients have only one set of adult teeth. It makes sense to choose a dentist who can be trusted with your teeth. So, why is there a need for an updated perspective on choosing a dentist? There is a need for an updated perspective on choosing a dentist because of the changes
