When should I bring my child in for their first appointment?
Children should visit the dentist after their first tooth has come in or before their first birthday. Getting your child familiar with the dentist before they have a tooth ache will make it less stressful to come back.

How do I maximize my Dental Insurance Benefits?
Make sure to use your yearly maximum dental benefits. If you don't use the yearly amount that is allocated to you, you will lose it. Keep an eye on when your dental insurance rolls over for the year so that you are not paying out of pocket deductible once it has been met. If you are paying monthly premiums for your insurance you should be sure to take advantage of the benefits. Most dental insurance companies will pay for two routine checkups and examinations a year with no out of pocket expense to you. They do this knowing that preventative maintenance will catch problems when they are small and more affordable to fix. Read more.

How do I know when I need a procedure done?
We want to improve your teeth and are not interested in making quick money on procedures that are not necessary. Everything we do is ethical and with your best interest in mind. We enjoy getting to know you, finding out your concerns, evaluating your dental needs, and helping you make a wise treatment decision. We also take the time to explain why we think you would benefit from a certain course of action.
