What can I expect during my first visit?

Our goal is to create beautiful, healthy smiles through individualized patient and education-based dental care. In other words, it’s your treatment – we educate, you decide.

We Educate

You can expect a boutique dental experience focused on getting to know you and your oral health. After a detailed analysis of your oral health and an understanding of your smile goals, we’ll present treatment plans and smile designs based on our science-based approach to comprehensive care and our commitment to artistic aesthetic dentistry.

You Decide

Rather than blindly doing what we recommend, we’ll give you all the options and answer any questions you may have. It’s your smile. We are just here to serve you and help you meet your goals.

What’s different about your approach to new patient cleanings?

We believe it’s really important to get a clear picture of your oral health situation (loose teeth, fillings, gum concerns, etc…) before we dive into treatment. That’s why we first perform a comprehensive exam before we determine what kind of cleaning and/or treatment would be best for you.

Do you take my insurance?

We accept any benefit plan that allows you the freedom to choose your own dentist. In fact, over 90% of our patients utilize dental insurance to help pay for their care. We are, however, not contracted with any insurance companies due to the limitations they impose on our patient's treatment options. There are tens of thousands of different dental benefit plans. Please give us a call if you need help understanding how your benefits would work at our office.

We look forward to meeting you.
