What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?
We believe that every person is different and special in their own way. You are more than your x-rays, your teeth, and your gums. What is important to you? Are you feeling anxious? We believe in tell-show-do, where you tell the patient what is going to happen, show them what comes next, then you proceed with treatment when they are ready. We also have laughing gas. Would you like a faster appointment? We can try to accommodate. Want more anesthesia? We will make absolutely sure you are numb before beginning any treatment. Want less anesthesia? We will make sure you are comfortable. Are your gums sensitive? We have very strong topical anesthetic gel to help with cleanings if needed - no needles necessary. Have kids? Me too. Bring them in! We love it when families come together. Are finances a concern? We accept all PPO insurances, and will let you know what costs are before you begin any treatment with a copay. We always work hard to maximize your insurance benefits. We also accept Care Credit, so you can make monthly payments. If you aren't sure what you want, we can work together to figure that out too. Our goal is to get you and your mouth healthy, and make sure you have the tools and education to stay healthy.
