About Our Office
When you arrive at our office, you’ll notice that there is not a “check in window.” Our office is open and inviting. We want our patients to feel welcome. Like guests in our home. Our office has been In Rockwall since 1971. It is not uncommon to see children, parents, and grandparents all from the same family. Our patients chose us because of how they are treated. Most of our new patients come to us based on referrals from family or friends. Click here to find out more about our dental team.
Our mission is to provide comprehensive dental care for reasonable fees in a relaxed setting. We are committed to helping preserve complete oral health.
Our goal is to make your visit comfortable, while making certain our patients understand the treatment recommendations, the reason for the treatment, and how to prevent future dental problems.
Our motto is: “How can we help you smile?”
From financing options to treatment options and scheduling, we will do anything we can to help you with your treatment. We want to make it easy for you to get the treatment you want and need.
It’s simple. To treat you like family. If we recommend the treatment to you, you can be sure we would recommend it to our family!
Fees, Insurance, and Financing
Fees vary widely from office to office. Our fees are reasonable based on our area and experience. We make sure that all fees are discussed prior to any treatment being started. We dislike surprises as much as you do! We accept Visa and Mastercard. We also offer a 10% discount off our office fees, when treatment plans are paid in advance of the appointment date.
We offer care credit, which allows you to pay for your treatment over 12-18 months. The best part is that it is interest free! Actually we pay the interest, but it is interest free for you. Apply online or our staff can help you apply in our office. Click Here to apply online.
Dental insurance is designed to help pay for some of the cost of dental care, by paying a portion of the bill. No insurance will cover everything. As a courtesy to you, we will file your insurance. When possible we will coordinate the treatment to help maximize your dental benefits. We encourage you to call our office to discuss your insurance with our staff. They are extremely knowledgeable and can help answer all of your questions. We are committed to you, not the insurance companies. Unfortunately, insurance companies may not pay as they should. We will do everything we can to fight for you, but we cannot make promises on behalf of the insurance companies.
The 3 types of Dental Insurance:
1. Traditional benefit (“indemnity”) plans do not limit where you can go. You can see any dentist and receive the full benefits.
2. PPO Plans give you a list of network providers. You can go out of network, but your benefits may be slightly less than if you went to an in-network provider.
3. HMO/DMO Plans only pay for services from a dentist on their restrictive list of providers. While the plan may offer low fee dental care, be careful. I have seen some of these offices charge separately for procedures that are routinely considered part of the overall treatment. An example would be charging for numbing the tooth prior to a filling, or bonding in a filling. Sometimes these plans can cost you more than if you didn’t have insurance at all! Just be careful and ask questions.
If you find yourself with questions about insurance or proposed treatment, please call us. Our staff is happy to answer any questions or have you meet with the doctor.
