Our Endodontists

A Wise Choice... ™

We look forward to making your visit pleasant. Our office and procedures have been designed to put you at ease and our staff members are devoted to your comfort. We truly care about your needs and hope you feel relaxed in our office. Thank you for choosing to save your tooth. It is a wise decision and we are pleased to be a part of the effort.

We strive to make your dental care as affordable as possible. We believe that patients should be able to get the dental care they need and deserve, & feel good about their financial responsibilities. To help keep our fees as low as possible, we ask for payment in full on the day of your treatment.

Our fee schedule includes an exam , necessary x-rays, review of diagnostic findings with the doctor, the needed procedure, any necessary medications as well as doctor check appointments following the procedure. Any permanent filling or restoration (crown, core buildup, etc.) required after endodontic therapy will be completed by your general dentist. If you or your general dentist specifically request that we place a permanent filling, or if the complexity of your case requires a specialized 3D imaging, an additional fee will be required. Before beginning treatment, we will discuss your case with you in detail and answer any questions you may have.

For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, VISA, MasterCard and Discover. We also offer CareCredit, a dental charge card. You can apply for CareCredit online by going to www.carecredit.com. If you have unusual circumstances or would like to discuss financial arrangements please speak to one of our Business Assistants PRIOR to your endodontic treatment. We would be happy to arrange an affordable dental payment plan.

Thank you for your effort to save a tooth.
