the floss Bar Services
45 Minute Slots - Evenings & Weekends - Paperless
You're in good hands! Our professional hygienists are the frontline of our operation as we focus on making the most popular services in dentistry (cleaning, whitening, and exams) as efficient, available, and affordable as possible.
There's no shaming, no up-selling, or surprise fees, but if you do want something more complicated than our regular offerings, just let us know in your booking and we are happy to arrange it. See below for FAQ.
Routine Professional Teeth Cleaning
$95 or Insurance
This is the standard teeth cleaning you get done at the dentist at least 2 times a year. For those who want to stay extra clean or have clear braces (which trap bacteria and accelerate tartar buildup) we recommend coming every 3 months. We also can use topical anesthesia to make sure your experience is as seamless as possible.
The NYC average rate is $220
X-Rays & Pre-Diagnostics
$65 or Insurance
The pre-diagnostic package includes X-rays, Intraoral Camera, Oral Cancer Screening, and Periodontal Probing. Our hygienists do the work and a dentist personally calls you to discuss their findings. Note that this is not a full dental exam, but rather a service that is expected to capture the majority of issues you may have and enable you to book at times most convenient for you.
The NYC average rate is $130
We can also arrange for a dental exam at your visit if you would like one with a dentist onsite as long as you book on a weekday at 6:30pm or earlier. Up to you!
The NYC average rate is $170
Clear Braces Consultation
Curious? It only takes us 10 minutes to assess your candidacy for Invisalign with our certified orthodontists and explain a full customized treatment plan to you. We offer flexible payment plans so you don't have to break the bank. You have a choice between Invisalign or one of its competitors, depending on whether you are an advanced or mild/medium case.
Adult Deep Cleaning (Gum Disease Only)
$195 or Insurance
Deep Scaling & Root Planing is done over 2 visits - each covering two of the four quadrants of the mouth. This is for patients with gum disease, meaning patients which have red, swollen, and bleeding gums due to bacteria having invaded the deep pockets between their teeth and gums. Local anesthesia is normally used. (Priced per 2 quads)
The NYC average rate is $450
Professional In-Office Teeth Whitening
We use the Pola Office+ for in-office professional whitening, the fastest bleach on the market. We recommend using sensitivity tooth paste before and after treatment, and avoiding colorful foods afterwards, such as wine, berries, and tomato sauce. Recommend whitening only once a year.
Multi-use take-home kits occasional touch-ups are available.
The NYC average rate is $450
Floss, Polish & Go is our newest service. It is a way to try us out with minimal commitment. You can book an appointment to simply get your teeth flossed and polished by a professional, get a shot of mouthwash, and go on your way. Think of this as a refresher you can do before a date or interview! We can also train you to floss better at home. Remember to use the "C-shape" technique!
Floss, Polish & Go - A FlossBar Original
"As someone who is obsessed with oral hygiene, Floss Bar has significantly streamlined the services I am looking for without having to deal with a dental office experience."
Advanced Work Request
While we focus on innovation in the basics of the dental market, we do indeed work out of dental offices. These offices have dentists. So if you need advanced work like veneers, a root canal, a crown, fixing of a chipped tooth, or your wisdom teeth removed, we are happy to help. And our concierge service will negotiate a rate on your behalf. Note that we do not offer emergency services.
Does Floss Bar take my insurance?
For customers with insurance:
Our offices vary regarding what insurances they take, and will continue to vary as we grow. We double-check for you that you are indeed covered at the location you booked before we treat you, otherwise we reroute you. There is no such thing as being surprised by your bill. If you have a question about whether we take your insurance, just book an appointment, fill out your forms, and we will get back to you with very clear guidance.
For customers without insurance:
Floss Bar offers the most competitive prices across the city, a win for those without dental.
