Are you taking new patients?
Yes! We would love to have you join our practice. Please call us at 256-531-9983 and speak with us about available times.
Do you take payment plans?
We have some great options to allow patients the opportunity to have needed treatment done. We accept CareCredit, a revolving credit card that allows six months at no interest. You can apply at www.carecredit.com or in our office. [Developer’s note: Link this.]
Our in-house savings plan in another option. The cost is $300 and includes two cleanings per year with X-rays and exams by the doctor. Any emergency exam and needed X-rays are covered. There is also a 15% discount on treatment. We also accept Visa, Discover, Mastercard and American Express.
Do you have any specials?
Check our Facebook and Instagram pages for quarterly promotions.
Do you take walk-ins?
We do our best to accommodate anyone needing treatment. We see regularly scheduled patients from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. We will let you know about the wait time, if there is one. We do our best to respect our patients’ time, so regularly scheduled patients will be seen first.
I have a toothache. What do I do?
Toothaches can be painful and cause sleepless nights or missed work. We can often get you in quickly for an evaluation and X-rays. Our doctor can then give you the best treatment options. Insurance often covers much of the initial exam.
Do you place silver fillings?
This is a hot topic in dentistry today. We have found our patients dislike the aesthetics of silver fillings and some are worried about the mercury content in them. Therefore, we place composite or tooth-colored restorations.
Do you extract wisdom teeth?
Our doctors do a variety of extractions. Sometimes a wisdom tooth can be impacted or rotated. In these cases, we refer to an oral surgeon for the needed extraction. It is best to get an exam and X-ray and let the doctor determine which treatment is best for you.
