WE MAKE DENTISTRY AFFORDABLE

Part of our different approach to dentistry is how we handle our fees. Our fees are not dictated by any third party. Nor do we penalize patients by charging to make up for insurance limitations. We recommend treatment based on what each patient needs to achieve their own health not a set norm based on the masses. We keep our fees as low as reasonably possible based on costs and the time we spend with patients. We eliminate surprises by providing a written plan before you start treatment. Together, we choose what is best for your oral health based on your individual goals. We are confident our fees are very fair and reasonable and encourage you to compare them to others in our area.
