Our Dentists


Our dental care plan has got you (and your teeth) covered.

We aim to make it affordable for you to receive the dental care you want and need, so we accept a number of insurance and financing plans, and offer discounts for new patients. Because dental problems only get worse with time, it may be more difficult to afford not going to the dentist. Irregular attenders usually end up losing teeth more often than regular patients, so it is worth the time for regular care.

Care Plan


If you want to use Our Dental services on a regular basis, it’s good to know that your preventative dental care is covered by convenient monthly payments. If you join our care plan, you get all of these benefits – and more.
