Our Mission

We like our patients to feel at home when they come to our office – to enter as patients and leave as friends. Our purpose is to provide quality care for the entire family, with the advantages of modern technology paired with the comfort of an old-town private practice.

Do you offer payment plans or financial assistance?

Yes. We offer an in-house credit card payment arrangement, which would allow you to spread your payments over 90 days.

Our office also works with CareCredit, which offers a no-interest payment option of 6 to 12 months on approved credit. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that can be used to pay for dental services – elective treatments such as veneers or dental alignment, or necessary services like dental cleanings, regular check-ups, endodontic procedures, and periodontal disease prevention.

The longer payment term allows you to lessen what could be an onerous financial responsibility. As CareCredit is a credit card, it not only keeps your dental care costs separate from your other credit card purchases (the better to track your dental expenses), it also can be reused once the balance is paid. It can be used to pay for your insurance deductibles and co-payments as well. You may also find special financing offers once you apply, which can be done at our office or online at

You can use CareCredit by itself, or in combination with a credit card or cash arrangement with our office. We can help you to apply in office or over the phone, so if you’re interested in applying for CareCredit, please call our office.
