Dental Awarenes Month

February is dental health awareness! Remember to see your dentist regularly every six months for cleanings and exams. Your kids by age 1 should also be seeing a dentist so they feel comfortable at a young age.

We will also be serving our area in the Give Kids a Smile Program. It is a national event that reaches out to kids who do not have the financial access to see dentists regularly. If you know of a family or would like more information please contact our office.

Happy Thanksgiving to All!!!

Everyone have a great Thanksgiving and hope the kids enjoy their week off from school! Remember to brush after eating all those sweets, pies, and pumpkin pie. Decemeber is a great month to come in and get all your silver fillings replaced if you have insurance benefits left over or do any treatment not yet done. Enjoy your holidays and be safe.

Where are you at with your Insurance?

Remember your insurance

benefits start over in 2010

For patients that have insurance and have not completed any treatment - Now is the time! If you are close to reaching your maxium amount of coverage then you can complete some of it in 2009 and the rest in 2010. If you have any questions please call 322.8200 or 888.0900!

Also, it is great to have orthodontic/braces consults before the start of the year so you can use your flex spending.

New Patients and Emergencies are welcome also at this time. Its great to get anything started before the end of the year.
