answers to FAQ's
Do you accept dental insurance?

Please bring your Dental Insurance card with you to your visits.
How can I make a payment?
Our office accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and personal checks.
We prefer not to handle cash.
If I am in pain how soon can you see me?
If you are experiencing pain, we make every effort to see you the same day. Please call our office and tell them what you are feeling. In most cases the problem can be corrected or stabilized the same day.
What is your cancellation policy?
Like most medical offices, we require 48 hours notice for cancellations. There is a charge to cancel within 24 hours. We do not “overbook” appointments so our doctors reserve time just for you.
We keep patient information strictly confidential, and as such comply with HIPPA guidelines. For your convenience we keep a printed copy of our privacy policies in our patient waiting room.
If I am a new patient, will I have to fill out a dental history?
