How should I replace my missing teeth?
Our practice is happy to offer a multitude of options that can replace any number of teeth. While we do have more traditional restorations like bridges and dentures, as our name suggests, we are experts when it comes to dental implants. They are able to deliver the most durable, reliable, and natural-looking results of any replacement available today. After a brief consultation, we can discuss all of your options and help you choose which one is best for you.
What sets you apart from other implant dentists in the area?
While any general dentist can claim to offer dental implants, implant dentistry is actually a very complex and precise service, so in order to provide the best care possible, our doctors have taken a variety of advanced training courses. Dr. Ruiz is a graduate of the Misch Implant Institute and a Fellow of the International Congress of Implantologists, meaning he has completed at least 100 hours of implant education and numerous implant cases. And, Dr. Fan has a dental implant certification from Columbia University. Not every dentist goes to these lengths to hone their craft, and that is why we are able to provide a level of care you simply cannot expect from your average practice.
Do you accept dental insurance?
Yes, we are in-network providers for many of the most common dental insurance plans, and we will even file your claim on your behalf. To see how we can use your particular plan to help you save, contact us today!
Do you offer any kind of financing?
Yes! Our practice works with CareCredit, a third-party financier where you can qualify for a low-to-no interest payment plan that will break up the cost of your care into smaller monthly installments. They have plans that can work for any budget, and you can explore your options here.
