About Our Staff
you ever been reluctant to have your teeth cleaned? There is no reason
why this should be uncomfortable. What you need is a hygienist who is
thorough, yet gentle.
Our hygienist, Vicky, has been with me for over 30 years. She
graduated number one in her class and knows her profession. She will
often diagnose the patient's needs before I even enter the room. She has
adopted our "tell, show, do" approach to dentistry, making your child's
first experience one they will look forward to on future recalls. Vicky
is a major asset in providing education and preventive dentistry to
avoid unnecessary future problems. Vicky is certified
to provide nitrous oxide "sweet air" to relax our patients as well as
local anesthetics to numb you gums, if you request it for your cleanings.
You will love having your teeth cleaned.
Our dental assistants are outstanding. Their skill, knowledge and
empathy for the patient would make any dentist proud. Besides
outstanding technical ability, they are helpful in answering your
questions and relieving your concerns.
Our receptionist, Jay, is thoroughly knowledgeable and capable in
the maze of insurance paperwork. Your forms are completed and sent out
the same day. I can't overestimate the need for understanding the many
insurance companies we deal with daily. Jay and Vicky have the experience and the
expertise to maximize your benefit and minimize any out-of-pocket
We never ask patients to lay out moneys their insurance company will
eventually pay us. In many cases, we will suggest delaying certain
treatments to the next calendar year to use your insurance more wisely.
You don't have to be an insurance expert, that's our job.
Have a tough schedule? Jay will offer you an early morning
appointment, lunch hour appointment or one on Saturday or in the
evening. Do you prefer longer and fewer appointments, or a shorter
appointment? Let Jay know your preference so she can be of maximum
help with your busy schedule.
After hours, our special operators are available 24 hours - 7 days a week for any of our patients' emergencies.
