You were probably raised with the understanding that you should see a medical doctor for regular checkups and care as well as emergencies or other unexpected medical situations.
Your teeth deserve the same care you give to the rest of your body. Every part of you is intricately connected, and the care that you give to your teeth will have an effect on your overall health; in fact, your oral health often acts as an indicator of your total health!
As patients of Dr. Minal your entire family can enjoy high quality care – even the littlest members.
At our office, we believe strongly in practicing preventive care. We would rather have our patients come in for regular checkups (just like you would with your medical doctor) so that we can help you maintain good dental health and learn good hygiene habits instead of only seeing you when something is wrong. Most dental problems can be easily avoided with a little preventive TLC.
Regular checkups also give us the opportunity to spot problems early and begin treatment promptly to prevent a future dental emergency. Catching a problem like decay or gum disease early will prevent additional damage and allow for a greater variety of treatment options.
Regular checkups are vital for children too. Your child’s mouth is in a constant state of development and change. We will watch the way the baby teeth come in and, later, how the permanent teeth develop to make sure that everything is growing the way it should.
Today’s dental office is a far cry from the way we’ve been presented in the movies and on TV. Our instruments are not scary, and we certainly don’t want to cause you any pain!
Modern techniques and technology make it possible for us to perform even procedures with bad reputations (like extractions) comfortably, quickly, and effectively.
We believe in discussing our recommendations and treatments with patients (or their parents) and allowing you to always have the final say in your dental care. Your children may appreciate a tour of the office and the opportunity to meet the team members who will be caring for them. We are also always happy to let you see the instruments we are going to use and explain exactly what they are for. When we are explaining procedures to your kids, we’ll use kid-friendly terms to both increase their understanding and prevent fearfulness.
Our office is a welcoming, low-stress environment. Our team members are well-trained in helping families and working with kids to ease fears and make the visit truly pleasant.
We also offer emergency care for both kids and adults because we know that life has a way of throwing the occasional curveball (sometimes literally!). Give our office a call when you need help, and we’ll do our very best to get you in the exact same day.
Call our dental office today to schedule a checkup for your child or any member of your family. We look forward to being a part of your healthcare team!
We works with majority of Dental Insurances such as Aetna, Assurant, Cigna, Delta Dental, Metlife, as well as other insurances with “out-of-network” dental benefits. For clients with such benefits, we will bill your insurance and you are responsible for co-payments and deductibles at the time of service.
The goal is to help remove financial barriers so our clients can receive the dental care they need and desire. Prior to scheduling any treatment, we are happy to provide an estimate of costs and co-payments. We are pleased to assist in maximizing your dental benefits. As a courtesy to you, we file all claim forms electronically.
Clients are asked to pay for services as they are provided. We accept cash, checks, debit cards, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible financing options because we understand that monthly payments can help patients fit the costs of dental treatment into their budgets.
