Our Services

Smile...you are in the hands of experienced and capable dentists with the ultimate goal of producing results that are completely natural looking.

General Dentistry & Preventative Care

Of course, the best way to combat mouth diseases and tooth pain is to take steps to prevent them from occurring in advance. Although advances in dental technology have made it possible for us to restore the health of your mouth with relative ease and comfort, it is always preferable to preserve and protect your existing teeth. In addition to maintaining a sensible oral hygiene regimen, it is essential that you visit your dentist regularly to have your teeth professionally cleaned and screened for potential problems. By doing so, you increase the chances that your natural teeth will serve you well your entire life. Find Out More

Our patients are seen by appointment with enough time to ensure quality, both of dentistry and of the relationship between our patients and ourselves. Time is allowed for questions and explanations. This also means that our patients are seen on time. We respect your schedule, and every effort is made to seat our patients on time. Our staff will contact you in advance to confirm your appointment with you. But even if we are not able to reach you, we know we can count on you to be here as scheduled. Since we do not overbook, a "no show" means an empty office for us. Even the most reliable people occasionally need to reschedule their appointments. If this happens to you, simply call us soon as possible. Aside from a big "thank you", it allow us enough time to schedule and treat patients in need of urgent dental care.

During your first appointment, you will have time with Dr. Polit or Dr. Costello so that you can get to know each other and discuss your desires and expectations from your dental care. Next, we will use our intra-oral camera to study the condition of your teeth. Next, the necessary x-rays needed to complete your examination will be taken. Also included in your examination will be a detailed charting of the current condition of your teeth, gums, and bone support. The doctors will also check for the presence of oral cancer as well as the condition of the joints and muscles in your face and jaws.

Upon completion of this comprehensive examination we will discuss the overall findings, goals, expectations, and treatment options.

We participate with most insurance companies and will work hard to help you get the maximum benefits. Remember, your benefits are determined by your employer, not your dentist and are meant to aid you in paying for dental care. They generally do not pay 100% of treatment costs. Insurance benefits vary greatly from one policy to another. It will be your responsibility to pay any amount not covered by your benefits. We firmly believe that patients with insurance deserve the high quality of care as patients without insurance and will therefore share all treatment options available to you, not just what your insurance benefits allow.
