Do you file insurance?

Yes. We are network providers for Delta Dental Premier and file out-of-network claims for most other insurance policies. Dental insurance is diverse. Some policies cover only a small percentage of fees, while others cover 50 percent or greater. The more you or your employer pays for premiums, the better the coverage, in most cases. For the most part, dental insurance covers some restorative and preventive procedures. Cosmetic treatment is not usually covered. We work with many patient financing companies to make cosmetic dentistry affordable for all of his patients. If you have questions, give us a call. We'll be happy to tell you what your insurance will cover.

Do you see children?

Absolutely. We enjoy creating gorgeous, healthy smiles for patients of any age – including children. If we find that your child – or you, for that matter – would benefit from seeing a specialist, we'll refer to a trusted colleague. Some children deal with dental appointments better at a pedodontist's office, that's what a children's dentist is called. We also refer patients who have extensive dental problems, like advanced periodontitis or problematic root canals, to specialist for optimal care. As a general dentist office, our preventive, restorative, prosthetic, and cosmetic dental services include treatments suitable for patients of all ages.

Can you replace my missing teeth?

Yes. You'll need to first schedule a consultation with the dentist. He can assess your oral health and discuss options for replacement teeth. In general, you can choose from crown and bridgework, partial or full dentures, or dental implants. As the most natural prosthetic to natural tooth structure, a dental implant offers a comfortable, natural-looking, easy-to-care-for choice.

You’re treating my child with orthodontics. Do you offer braces for adults?

Absolutely. We offer traditional braces, as well as a removable alternative to traditional braces. ClearCorrect uses 3D imaging to design a custom set of aligners, then the patient wears a new aligner every few weeks. For big events, simply remove the aligner. This makes cleaning easy, too. If you aren't a candidate for ClearCorrect, consider traditional braces with clear brackets. This less obvious orthodontia is popular with teens and adults. Make an appointment to learn which treatment will suit your lifestyle best.
