“I enjoy the challenge of finding ways to help patients achieve their goals for their oral health. Everyone has a story and it is a pleasure to get to know each and every person that comes into the office. Dentistry is a very personal thing to most people and it is a great feeling when I can earn the trust of our patients.”
We ask that you realize that we do not work for your Insurance company. Rather we work 100% for our patients. We feel that Insurance can be a great benefit for many patients and want you to know we will do everything in our power to ensure you get every benefit allotted in your insurance contract. However, the treatment we recommend and the fees we charge will always be based on your individual needs, not your insurance coverage.
We strive to make dentistry affordable and easy to manage. That is why we offer in house monthly payments with no interest or longer term options with CareCredit! Don’t forget to ask about our senior discount!
