Care Philosophy

When it comes to picking a dentist, we know that you have options. Personalized, gentle, comprehensive patient care is our number one priority.

Here are just a few things that make our practice unique:

CARE AND COMMITMENT

 From the front office to the exam room, our practice is made up of professionals who take  your oral health very seriously. Using state of the art equipment designed with safety and  efficiency in mind, we are able to offer top-notch care. As you walk through our office, you  will notice that everything is clean, comfortable and thoroughly sterilized. Your safety and  comfort are our priority.

 HONESTY AND AFFORDABILITY

 We know that the cost of care can be confusing. In addition to offering a number of in-office  payment options to fit your budget, we also give you up-front cost information on your  treatment ahead of time. We are in network with a variety of insurance plans, and we offer  various forms of dental financing with credit available in time frames that fit your needs.  We are happy to help you navigate your dental insurance and alternative payment options.

EASY ACCESS TO DENTAL CARE AND INFORMATION

 We know that your time is valuable to you, and that’s why we offer extended office hours on  select days, dental appointment reminders, and a quick turnaround time on calls and  appointment requests. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns in the office, over  the phone or via email.

COMPREHENSIVE DENTAL CARE IN ONE LOCATION

 At our practice, we are qualified to handle all aspects of your care, so you are always  surrounded by people that you trust. If we must refer out, we promise to send you to  carefully vetted colleagues who apply the same professional principles in their office that we  do in ours.

COMFORT

 We respect and understand that many patients experience dental anxiety. At our office, we  do everything we can to make sure that your experience is as enjoyable as possible. By  communicating clearly what you can expect during your treatment, we are often able to  alleviate dental fear. We encourage you to bring headphones and music to listen to during      your treatment and ask us about dental sedation options.

PERSONALIZED SERVICE

 At our practice, you aren’t just a patient. We take an interest in you and your oral health  needs. We think you’ll find a friend in your dental professional during your visit!

Patient Comments (2)
Tuscaloosa, AL |
I will never be a patient at this office by choice. While waiting on a friend of mine a few weeks ago to have a procedure done, I could hear the "office manager" (I inquired) gossiping to an employee about another employee and making fun of one of the doctors. Really? Your going to make fun of a guy that signs your paychecks? Your boss? This reflected very poorly on this office. I'd rather drive to Birmingham.
I swoll so bad after surgery anf was infected the day after surgery. Had to go to the ER and get all differnt meds.
