Q) How long is a new patient visit? What will happen?

A) Your first appointment with us will take about an hour. A member of our front-office team will review your paperwork and discuss the reasons for your visit, then escort you to a treatment room to meet the dentist. After discussing your medical and dental history, the dentist will conduct a thorough exam of your teeth and soft tissues. We’ll obtain digital X-rays and use an intraoral camera to take pictures inside your mouth. The dentist will explain his findings, answer all of your questions, and discuss his therapy recommendations. You’ll leave with a plan to achieve the fantastic smile that you deserve!

Q) My denture comes loose at the most inopportune times. What can I do?

A) Bring your denture to our office for an analysis. Because gum tissue changes over time, it’s a good idea to have your denture relined every 7 to 10 years. We can adjust your denture for a better fit, and we can also discuss other options for tooth replacement with you, such as dental implants. Anchored securely by the jawbone, dental implants will permanently hold your denture in place, eliminating slipping, clicking, and the need for denture pastes or creams.

Q) How can I make my smile brighter?

A) We offer custom-made take-home trays with professional whitening gel for safe and effective teeth whitening in the comfort of your own home. Home whitening yields excellent results – up to eight shades or better! Two weeks of use produces optimal results, but if your teeth reach the desired shade before then, simply discontinue treatment.

Q) Will you care for my entire family?

A) Absolutely. We enjoy creating gorgeous, healthy smiles for patients of any age. We provide children’s dentistry, orthodontics, and restorative care to cover every stage of life. As a general dentist office, our preventive, restorative, prosthetic, and cosmetic dental services include treatments suitable for patients of all ages.

Q) Can I finance my dental work?

A) We have partnered with CareCredit, a trusted name in third-party financing, in order to make dentistry more affordable. CareCredit offers revolving credit, low monthly payments, and no interest for up to 18 months for patients who qualify. Visit the CareCredit website to fill out an online application.
