Does my insurance cover that?

Dental insurance is diverse. Some policies cover only a small percentage of fees; others cover 50% or greater. The more you or your employer pays for premiums, the better the coverage, in most cases. Typically, dental insurance covers some restorative and preventive procedures. Cosmetic treatment is not usually covered. We accept CareCredit to make cosmetic dentistry affordable for all of our patients. If you have questions, give us a call. We'll be happy to tell you what your insurance will cover. back to top

Do you refer patients to specialists?

While we're trained and equipped to handle many dental issues in our office, when a specialist would better serve you, we'll refer. Some dental specialists are oral surgeons, periodontists (supporting structures), endodontists (internal tooth problems), orthodontists (for moving teeth), and pedodontists (for children). We refer to only trusted professionals with whom we have a good rapport.
