Our Gift To Show We Care About You!Our initial examination and consultation is FREE OF CHARGE! This is based only on a visual inspection and discussion of any concerns that you may have. If it is determined that further investigation is necessary, x-rays may be a choice that you may wish to make but that is NOT FREE OF CHARGE. We want to give you an opportunity to meet us and also develop a comprehensive plan together to make sure your mouth is healthy and you achieve any goal that you would like to accomplish.
Our Pledge To You!It is our goal to make your experience with us the best dental visit that you have ever had. We value your opinion and encourage our patients to let us know exactly how you feel about us and how you were treated. Ask our staff about our special offer for the month!
