Investing in your care

Our team is committed to straightforward pricing, clear estimates, and helping you navigate any financial obstacles. As a fee-for-service, out-of-network provider we have the ability to provide you with the highest-quality personalized care.

For those with insurance, we are happy to complete the paperwork and submit it to insurance on your behalf.

New Patient FAQs

Why should I choose a fee-for-service dentist?

When dental offices participate as “preferred providers” with insurance companies, they accept a 10-45% reduction in fees for every procedure they perform. As a result, dentists must perform more procedures to compensate for the fee difference. Unfortunately, this may lead to the over-recommendation of unnecessary treatments. With our fee-for-service practice, you can rest assured that our recommendations are based solely on your dental needs and not influenced by insurance requirements.

Can you help with dental anxiety?

Yes! We understand that dental anxiety is a widespread issue, affecting people of all ages and backgrounds. We’re committed to ensuring your comfort and well-being before, during, and after your appointment. Our team is empathetic, friendly, and dedicated to making your visit as stress-free as possible.

How often should I visit your practice?

We highly recommend that you visit us every 6 months for routine cleanings and exams. These routine visits allow us to detect any potential issues at their earliest stages so we can provide prompt treatment and maintain optimal oral health.

Are you accepting new patients?

Yes! We’re always welcoming new patients at our practice and we’d love to meet you.

You deserve excellent dental care
