MEET THE TEAM
We are available to serve you, answer questions or schedule an appointment during the following hours:
Monday thru Thursday from 8:10 am – 4:40 pm and

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.
If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs.
Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Once treatment has started, we will file your orthodontic claim. If your benefits change during the course of treatment, the financially responsible party is accountable for all charges
It is our mission to provide you with affordable, high-quality treatment that fits your budget! We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs. Our office accepts payments by cash, checks, and Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards. We also accept financing through CareCredit. If you have any questions about financing or payment, ask us! We will thoroughly explain your choices and work hard to accommodate your needs.
We are always looking for talent. Please email us your CV/Resume if you are interested in working with us as a dental hygienist, a chair-side assistant or a communication/front office team member. Looking forward to getting to know you!
