Questions? We’re here to help

 

Do you offer free consultations?

We do not. Think of our consultations like extremely detailed examinations. Our goal is to provide the highest level of care at every step of the process. During your new patient exam, you will often have as much as an hour and a half of one-on-one time with the doctor to discuss your current concerns, past dental history, dental conditions, and various treatment options. Our consultations are carefully designed to put you one step closer to resolving your concerns and improving your smile.

 

Do you offer dental hygiene cleaning appointments?

No. As a specialist office, we focus on restorative care and do not offer hygiene appointments. Most of our patients have a general dentist who they visit for regular check ups and dental cleanings.

 

Do I need a referral to schedule an appointment?

No, a referral is not necessary to book an appointment. However, we have excellent relationships with general dentists throughout Portland and are highly referred. If you found us through a dentist referral, we are so happy to have you!

 

I know what treatment I need, do I still need to book a new patient consultation?

Yes, we want to get to know you, your situation, and your dental health. Taking this time to fully understand your dental health leads to the best treatment recommendation and high-quality, long-lasting results. Whether you have an idea of what treatment you need or aren’t sure where to start, we invite you to schedule a new patient exam.
