Practice Information

A Beautiful Practice For All Your Dental Needs


Our new office was built in 2014, and we are proud to provide a state-of-the-art facility for the highest quality dental care available. It is one of our top priorities to protect the well-being of our valued patients. For this reason, our office meets and surpasses all OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and CDC (Center for Disease Control) standards.



If you would like to make an appointment, please contact our office by phone or email. Our office facilitates communications and emergency calls and appointments are available and welcome, especially for new patients seeking help. You can easily download, print, and fill out your registration, medical history, and financial policy forms before your first appointment. Save some time, print them out, fill them out at home, and bring them with you. The forms are located under the "Our Practice" tab.


Forms of payment accepted by the office are cash, check, and major credit cards (VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express).

We will be more than happy to submit all insurance forms for you as a courtesy, and help you recover the most from your benefits. We are a provider for Delta Dental Premier, Aetna, and Cigna dental insurances only, but we can submit claims for any dental insurance company that you may have. In fact the majority of our patients utilize us as an out-of-network provider.  We are proud of the fact that they choose to see us rather than an in-network dental office.  We pride ourselves on our service, and can continue to provide outstanding service without tying our hands with insurance contracts.  We will file all dental insurance claims for you and your family.  We do this as a courtesy to you, and are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding dental insurance.

We will do everything we can to help you afford the treatment you need and want. For patients who require major work, a complete payment plan is designed with an appropriate payment schedule. We participate in a third party financing program, CareCredit. CareCredit is an ideal way to get no interest financing (if qualified) for your needed dental work. This unique system is an ideal tool to use to give you the freedom to get the dentistry you need and deserve by providing quick, easy financing options at no interest. Please call our office to inquire. Check out the Care Credit website at:


Please check out the Financial Policy form under the "Our Practice" tab.


If you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask that you kindly provide us with at least 24 hours notice. We ask for this advance notice so that we can offer this appointment to another patient. A fee may be charged if a patient does not show up for an appointment without sufficient notice.


Our state-of-the-art sterilization center helps us to efficiently clean and sterilize our dental instruments.  It is continuosly monitored to insure that we meet and exceed all standards for sterilization.  We routinely test our sterilizing machines with an independant third-party laboratory.



We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our practice for your dental care!
