Common Questions About Our Services
Do you accept dental insurance?

Yes, we take many forms of insurance. In addition, our office is happy to file your insurance for you. We strive to help you obtain all your benefits while providing you the best care possible. You can receive your care from your dentist even if you don’t find our name on the insurance company website or the list your employer provides. If you don’t have insurance, ask about our in-house Dental Savings Plan! For up-to-date information, call our office – we’re happy to tell you how the plan works.

When should I bring my child in for a dental appointment?

Helping your child develop and maintain healthy oral hygiene habits is much easier if they are gently introduced to dental care in a fun way. In general, we recommend you schedule your child’s first dental visit between ages 2 and 4. They will have a chance to get comfortable with our team first, so they feel good about the entire dental experience. Over time, their appointments will include traditional cleanings and exams.

What is Whitening for Life?

Whitening for Life is a wonderful way of maintaining a bright smile. All you do is pay a one-time $99 fee. After you complete your initial round of teeth whitening, you’ll be enrolled in the program. Just come in for your regular dental checkups, and you’ll get a free new supply of professional whitening gel. It’s that simple!
