Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zunka "Our entire team stays current on the latest trends and techniques of cosmetic and general dentistry, nutrition, homeopathy and TMJ therapy. Through continuing education, we learn about the latest techniques to provide you with the finest care possible.

Our concerns for you are three-fold; optimal health, function and appearance. 80% of adult tooth loss results from gum disease, we are concerned with more than attractive teeth. Our Team will work with you, with your complete dental health in mind.

We treat all patients irrespective of insurance coverage, however, we do not accept insurance as a form of payment.  Most dental insurance plans only cover a portion of a procedure, if anything.  Our contract for services is with you, not with an insurance company. We provide assistance in maximizing the benefits you may receive and we are happy to provide necessary claim forms. Your employer or HR department can give you all the details on your plan contract with your insurance company."
