About Amazing SMiles Dental Spa
Your Care From Start to Finish
Our patients receive personalized and comprehensive care every step of their dental journey. From the very first call, we take time to get to know you as a person, not just a set of teeth. When you walk in the door, you'll be greeted by a welcoming and experienced staff eager to help you with your dental needs. It is our responsibility to not only be honest and upfront about the state of your oral health but also put your satisfaction and happiness above everything else. We will answer any questions you have about your diagnosis, treatment, and any desired services, then guide you through the process comfortably and safely. And because we care about your health and wellbeing, we will check up on you after procedures, as well as reminding you about regular visits and maintenance appointments.
Paying With Convenience
We also want to make sure that affording such high quality care is the last thing on your mind, which is why we're happy to offer a variety of different payment options. We accept all major credit and debit cards, as well as all major PPO insurance plans. You also have the option to split your payment up into installments with CareCredit, which makes treatments even more affordable. On approval of credit, we offer a wide range of payment plans, ranging from 6 months to 12 months.
Always Safe and Careful
Though we've always payed close mind to safety and cleanliness, the recent pandemic has made us work even harder to protect our patients' wellbeing.
We're continuing our tradition of testing our sterilization equipment daily and providing every team member with initial and annual bio-hazard sterilization, CPR, first aid, and safety training. All surfaces and pieces of equipment are disinfected before and after your visit. To combat COVID-19, all of our staff are vaccinated and tested weekly, and masks are required inside the building.
Our office is open five days a week, from 9 A.M. to 6 P.M. If you need us, patients with emergencies are always given priority in our schedule and may even be able to come in a bit before or after hours, depending on availability. We are also open two Saturdays a month on a per-appointment basis with the exact dates being provided in advance.
Only the Best of Materials and the Most Advanced Technology
Our care and commitment to excellence is not the only high quality thing about us! We pride ourselves on only using the very best of materials, technologies, and techniques to make your time here that much better. Our veneers, crowns, dentures, and bridges are custom-made and hand-crafted by master artisans, here in the United States. This dedication results in greater quality control, personalization, and better, long-lasting results for our patients. Our high-tech, panoramic CBCT x-ray machine lets us visualize your case in tomographic 3D, allowing for innovative solutions and effective treatment.
We Hope You Enjoy Your Experience at Amazing Smiles Dental Spa and are Happy with Your Amazing Smile!
