Welcome to the Practice

We work closely as a team with your referring dentist, but a referral by a dentist is not required to become a new patient. We welcome referrals from patients and friends of the practice. If you are in need of a general or restorative dentist, we can provide you with the names of some of the excellent dentists we work with.

We communicate with you and your dentist, ensuring that your clinical, periodontal, and administrative needs are met as efficiently and smoothly as possible.

Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. We are here to listen to you and to help provide solutions leading to your better health. Periodontal treatment is a partnership between your periodontist, your dentist, any other treatment providers, and you. If you are anxious about receiving care, we have a variety of sedation options available to make your treatment as easy as possible.

Finances

Our goal is to help our patients. We understand that some treatment, particularly in advanced cases, can be a significant expense. If your treatment involves multiple procedures, they can usually be spaced out over time to accommodate your schedule and personal finances.

We have the following options to make your treatment feasible:

Insurance

We are preferred providers with Delta Dental PPO Premier. If you’re a member of another PPO (for instance, Aetna, BlueCross, Cigna, Delta Dental, Guardian, Metlife), it’s likely that your insurance will still cover a good portion of your treatment. We will submit all necessary paperwork on your behalf.

If your insurance plan is denoted HMO or DPO, it will exclusively cover services by providers under that plan. Call the number on your insurance card for providers. We do not accept Denti-Cal or Medi-Cal. If you are seeking a Denti-Cal provider, please click here.

Payment plans

We offer financing through the Wells Fargo Health Advantage credit card. For more information, visit WellsFargoHealthAdvantage.com/apply.

This is a really great office. All persons working here do a great job from start to finish. They are sensitive to your needs, make sure you are as comfortable as possible, and so for all work done has been great. I personally don’t care for going to the dentist but I know when I get there I am in good hands. If you are in need of a work this is a great place to start. They walk you through the process and keep you at ease.
