Our Philosophy of Practice
We understand that choosing a new dentist and a dental health team can be a challenge, leaving you with some uncertain feelings. Instead of telling you how healthy or fit you should be, we try to help you understand your choices about dental health and then let you make a free and informed choice.
Quality Dentistry: What is it really?
The goal of quality dentistry is to help you keep your teeth for the rest of your life in maximum health, comfort, function, and appearance – and do it with the least amount of stress and cost to you.
You personally are of great value and importance to us, and your physical, mental, and emotional health always will be our prime concern.
Excellence in dentistry begins with careful diagnosis and with the development of a MASTER PLAN to move us towards the health goals we will establish together. You have unique dental needs, and we will analyze and address them candidly and objectively.
We know what works and what’s best for your family’s dental fitness.
We place at your disposal the professional judgment and skill that we have gained through many years of dental training and hours of post-doctoral education. In our recommendations, we will apply this judgment and skill in determining the causes of present and potential future damage.
We will find common sense answers through listening and careful examination of teeth, gums, occlusion (bite), joints of the jawbone, and soft tissues. We use the most innovative technologies available including digital x-rays, computerized charting and health histories along with digital intra-oral photography. These technologies help us to more efficiently gather and store information to better safeguard our patient’s privacy. In our practice, we consider it far better to prevent dental diseases than to treat them after they occur.
Least amount of stress and cost to you.
We currently participate with the following Insurance Companies:
- United Concordia
- Anthem (Blue Cross / Blue Shield)
- Delta Dental (Premier)
Although we only participate with the named insurance companies we will be glad to file any insurance plan out of network.
It is the patient’s responsibility to make sure their plan allows them to go out of network. Patients with out of network plans will be responsible for the difference between our fees and the insurance plan’s allowable charge.
We’re happy to file your insurance claim, but remember that dental insurance helps to reduce the cost of your dental treatment and may not cover all costs. Our financial coordinator will be happy to discuss your dental benefits and present you with an estimate of your out of pocket expense.
If you do not have dental insurance, payment will be expected at the time the services are rendered. We do accept the following payment options: Cash, Check, Visa, Master Card, Discover, and Care Credit.
