How can we help you?
We are here to help guide our patients so they can make informed decisions about their dental care. This is why we love to answer your questions!
We've gathered some of the most common questions we hear at Sky Vally Dental; however, please feel free to contact our dental office if the answer you're looking for isn't here.
At Sky Valley Dental, we are in-network with Delta, Delta Premier, Regence PPO plans. However, we also work with most PPO insurances, and our treatment coordinators can help you understand your own unique dental plan and how you can maximize your benefits.

We always discuss treatment fees and costs before doing any type of treatment procedure, so you'll be sure to have a clear understanding of your out-of-pocket expense for your treatment with no financial surprises.
Insurance can be a helpful tool for defraying the cost of dental procedures; however, if you'd like to make monthly payments for your treatment, CareCredit may be of interest to you. CareCredit offers third-party financing that can help you fit treatment comfortably into your budget, and they even have interest-free plans for qualified patients. If you have questions about CareCredit or need help applying for it, our treatment coordinators are happy to assist you.
Contact Our Monroe Dental Clinic
We never want dental insurance or the cost of treatment to keep our patients from getting the dentistry they need. Please discuss your concerns with our team, and we're happy to work with you to help you fit the treatment you need into your budget. Call our Monroe dental office with any questions you might have about your payment options.
At Sky Valley Dental, patient comfort is a top priority, and we take extra steps to make sure our procedures are as painless and efficient as possible.
When delivering dental anesthetic, we use a topical gel to ensure you don't feel anything. A technology called DentalVibe also allows us to make giving dental anesthetic pain-free by using vibrations to distract your brain from the anesthetic being delivered. Our patients are surprised at how the process is now relatively painless.
CEREC Technology in Monroe
With CEREC technology, we can complete most restorative procedures like porcelain crowns and veneers the same-day without our patients having to wait weeks for a dental laboratory to complete their restoration. CEREC also uses 3-D imaging, which replaces the uncomfortable and goopy impressions we used to have to take of your teeth and makes the procedure more comfortable for our patients.
Other leading-edge technologies called rotary endodontic (root canal) tools help Dr. Cho to complete root canal treatment more efficiently since they are electric. The material they're made of (nickel-titanium) is also more flexible, so the procedure is more comfortable.

We also make our Monroe dental office pleasant and welcoming, with amenities for you to enjoy while you're here. Please let us know if there's anything else we can provide for your comfort!
Crowns & Bridges
We are thrilled to have same-day CEREC technology at our Monroe, WA dental office. CEREC has streamlined procedures that used to take weeks to finish into only an hour or two and made them more comfortable for our patients!
CEREC Technology Process
Here's how it works. Dr. Cho will scan a 3-D image of your damaged tooth directly to our milling machine located in our dental office. 3-D technology eliminates the need for the goopy and uncomfortable impressions we used in the past, and he's also able to custom design your restoration with the image.
Next, our milling machine uses high-quality ceramic porcelain to fabricate your new tooth crown while you wait. Then Dr. Cho can permanently place your crown and make any needed adjustments for your bite. This eliminates the frustration of wearing a temporary crown that might break or fall off.
With CEREC technology, there's no need for you to delay repairing a chipped, broken, or decayed tooth. It's quick and simple to fit your dental procedure into your busy schedule, and you'll receive a durable and aesthetically-pleasing dental restoration you can trust and rely on.

Experienced in Dental Implants
Dr. Cho has received and completed extensive training from the prestigious Misch Implant Institute and has been recognized as a Fellow and Diplomate from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), the largest implant dentistry organization in the world. This advanced training has given him the skills and experience to help our patients receive comprehensive implant dentistry, which means we can complete your procedure from start to finish.
Benefits of Replacing Missing Teeth in 98272
Living with a missing tooth is devastating in many ways. Eating and chewing become difficult, and your self-esteem may suffer due to the gaps in your smile. We are so excited to be able to help our patients get the tooth replacement they need to not only smile with confidence and ease again but also to maintain a healthy diet.
If you are living with a failing or already missing tooth, Dr. Cho can perform an examination and evaluate your condition to determine if tooth implants may be the right treatment for your needs. Don't suffer any longer with one or more missing teeth. We have solutions!

Many of our patients are surprised to learn that treatment with Invisalign is comparable in price to orthodontic treatment with braces. The amount that treatment costs also varies with each patient's unique needs. Dr. Cho takes into consideration the complexity of your case and how long it will take to complete it. The best way to determine what your treatment will cost is to schedule an Invisalign evaluation with your Monroe dentist.
Dental Insurance and Orthodontics
If your dental insurance includes an orthodontic benefit, you can usually apply it toward Invisalign treatment to help reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. We also work with third-party financing companies like CareCredit to help patients break the cost of their invisible braces into monthly payments that can make it more affordable.
Invisalign for Teens and Adults in 98272
Invisalign offers adults and teens the opportunity to straighten their teeth without having to wear metal braces. If invisible braces are something you're interested in, we encourage you to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Cho and learn what the cost will be. Our team is happy to work with you to help you achieve the straighter, more beautiful smile that you want, and we can often help our patients fit the treatment they need into their budgets.

Dr. Cho took over our Monroe, WA dental practice in May of 2019, changing the name to Sky Valley Dental.
Dr. Chasen's thoughts were this "I know that you are in excellent hands with Dr. Cho and our talented team. They will continue our traditions, and you can look forward to seeing their friendly faces at your next visit.”
Family Dentistry in Monroe
Dr. Cho is proud to continue the tradition of family values and dental excellence that has been a cornerstone of this dental practice for over 40 years. Much of the same team will be serving you along with Dr. Cho, so there are still plenty of familiar faces to see when you visit Sky Vally Dental.
We are also excited about the new skills and innovation that Dr. Cho brings to the dental practice. New CEREC technology allows us to offer same-day dentistry and complete many restorations like tooth crowns in only one appointment.
Dr. Cho also handles implant dentistry from start to finish at Sky Valley Dental. This allows our patients to complete their entire implant procedure with the dentist and team that they know and trust.
