How often should I see my dentist?expand

We recommend making an appointment once every six months. However,
if you have special dental conditions, you may need to see us more often. Schedule your appointment to find out the timing that’s best for you.

What forms of payment do you accept?expand

We accept many insurance plans and make every effort to maximize your benefits. Otherwise we accept cash, check, or credit card (American Express, MasterCard, Discover, and Visa). For more information about financing options, click here.

Is it safe for my children to use fluoride toothpaste?expand

Yes, but the amount matters. For children under 3 years old, use no more than the size of a grain of rice, and for children 3–6 years old, use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. Always supervise your children’s brushing (twice a day) to make sure they spit out most of the toothpaste when they’re done, and to encourage healthy habits.

I don’t like dental appointments. Is there anything to calm my nerves?expand

We offer many options to help our patients relax, including nitrous oxide (known popularly as “laughing gas”). Our team will discuss your recommended treatment with you, and if necessary, administer nitrous oxide for your procedure. You will remain fully conscious, so we can explain exactly what we’re doing. And, once once we’re done, it fades quickly.
