Do You Accept Dental Insurance?

Yes, we’re a provider in the Delta Dental network. Our staff will work with you to get reimbursement from other insurance companies as well. We never want payment for your dental services to be a problem. If you don’t have insurance or it won’t cover your treatment, we can also help you apply for flexible financing through CareCredit or LendingClub.

Do You Have Any Orthodontic Options?

Yes! You can get Six Month Smiles® to straighten your smile. Because these braces focus on cosmetic improvement of your upper front teeth, adults can complete their treatment in an average of just six months. In addition to the short treatment time, patients appreciate the braces’ discreet appearance. Because they have clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, it’s likely no one will even notice you’re wearing them. In addition, they are more affordable than either traditional braces or aligners.

Should I Be Worried About Bleeding Gums?

Bleeding gums are often a sign of gum disease. With her advanced periodontal training, Dr. Fox can treat both simple and more advanced cases of gum disease. She is one of the relatively few dentists to offer the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a procedure to repair receding gums that is quicker and more comfortable than a gum graft. Unlike a graft, no cutting or stitching is needed.

What If I’m Too Afraid to Visit the Dentist?

You’re not alone! Fear of the dentist is one of the most common barriers to good oral health, which is why we put your comfort first. We provide strategies for relieving dental anxiety, including relaxing amenities and oral medication, if necessary, to calm your nerves.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

The safest and most effective teeth whitening treatment you’ll find is at a dentist’s office. We rely on a trusted professional whitening system that can deliver immediate results in a single visit or be applied at home using one of our customized kits. Visit us to find out which of our treatment options is right for you!

What Is A Smile Makeover?

This is one of our cosmetic dentistry services that includes a combination of treatments according to the goals you have for your new smile. Because every patient is different, smile makeovers are customized treatment plans that differ from one patient to the next. Dr. Fox will listen to the problems you have with the appearance of your teeth and gums and create the most efficient plan to transform your smile.
