Become a Patient
To make sure we are good fit for you, please read the following criteria for becoming a new patient.
- New patients need two initial visits. During the first visit we provide a screening and take necessary X-rays. The second visit is a comprehensive oral exam.
- Appointments can last up to three hours. This time frame helps accommodate the teaching process—it doesn’t mean you will have your mouth open for three hours! It does mean you get the benefit of expert opinions from multiple, experienced dental professionals and specialists.
- We cannot provide free care, payment will be expected at the time of your appointment. Our prices are lower than area private practices which makes us a great option for patients without insurance, as well as those who want to make their insurance dollar go further.
