Don't brush off regular checkups to the dentist! Regular dental checkups are essential to maintaining good oral health. We encourage regular checkups at least every six months. Seeing the dentist twice a year is recommended because your dentist can:
Your First Visit
Your first visit to the doctor typically includes an x-ray that allows the doctor to view the structure of the jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots, and tooth decay.
The initial visit also involves getting your medical history. When you share your medical history with the doctor, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. Inform your dentist if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or if you have recently been ill. Also tell the doctor the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking — whether prescription or over-the-counter products — and the name of your physician. Inform the doctor of any changes in your health or medications. It is also important to bring up any fears you may have about dental treatment.
The information collected in your first visit will help the doctor select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
Regular checkup appointments typically take 20 to 40 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.

Payment & Office Policies
The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient's problem. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. We work hard to make dental care affordable and to make sure that you realize your insurance benefits. A co-payment equal to amount insurance is not expected to cover (varies depending on treatment procedure being done) is due at the time service is performed. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards. Care Credit or a loan from a local bank are the only financing options available.
In an effort to keep fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:
We are now accepting most dental insurances. DELTA Dental insurance is not one that allows us to receive payments. Therefore, patients with Delta Dental Insurance will be required to pay for the total cost of treatment upfront, and Delta will then reimburse you. With all other dental insurance companies, instead of paying for your visit in full, you will be responsible for a dental "co-pay." This is equivalent to the amount not covered by the estimated payment from your insurance, plus any remaining balance after payment from both parties.
For your convenience, we accept payment all major credit cards.
CareCredit, a GE Money Company, gives you convenient payment options so you can get the procedure you want, when you want it.
