What type of insurance do you accept?
We are contracted with most major dental insurance companies. We will work within your insurance plan to help you reach the maximum benefit. If your insurance plan does not fully cover your dental treatment, we will inform you of the remaining portion and work out payment options.
How many doctors are there in the practice?
Dr. Barbara James is the sole doctor. This provides continuity of treatment and allows you to see the same doctor each visit. We pride ourselves in having open and honest communication so that Dr. James or any of the knowledgeable staff are always willing to answer any questions or concerns that you might have.
Do you have a payment plan?
We do whatever we can to make your treatment affordable. There are a variety of options from which to choose. We provide CareCredit and short-term monthly payments. We also accept Visa and Mastercard. Your health is our major concern so we do all that we can to achieve that goal.
What types of services are provided?
All aspects of general dentistry are provided which includes crowns, bridges, dentures, fillings, extractions, implants, periodontal (gums) treatment, Invisalign and sleep apnea treatment. In some instances it may be necessary to refer you a specialist for the more complex procedures.
Do you treat children?
Children seven and older are welcome.
What is the cost of treatment?
Fees are based upon the condition. This is the purpose of the comprehensive examination and diagnosis. Once your treatment plan has been determined, you will be given an accurate estimate prior to the commencement of any work.
How does the office handle patients who are afraid of the dentist?
Since we realize that many patients experience anxiety when they visit the dentist, our goal is to insure that everything we do is designed to make your visit as pleasant as possible. We provide a very serene, spa-like atmosphere with our decoration and aromatherapy. Dr. James and her staff have a very calming manner to help put patients at ease. Nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) is available if necessary along with oral medication.
