Your Associate Doctors
Providing Quality Care at an Affordable Price
Your dentist is often on the front lines of your health care experience. The Affordable Dental Care network has a proven track record of over 20 years of providing excellent quality care that is both comprehensive as well as state of the art. Our team of owners and associates compile a wealth of knowledge and expertise that can serve your every need. Our doctors continually strive to further themselves in their craft and work in conjunction with specialists and medical providers to ensure our patients entire health is taken into account in improving and maintaining your oral condition. A strong commitment to our community has allowed us to keep our prices low enough for all our neighbors near and far can afford to have healthy mouths.
Comprehensive High Standards
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to deliver the high quality dental services you deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and have a team of doctors that specialize in a multitude of procedures from basic restorative dentistry, to orthodontics, root canals, dentures, implants, bone grafts, sinus lifts wisdom tooth surgery, and IV sedation.
Because we understand that dental phobia is one of the most common fears most people experience, we have several doctors certified in IV moderate sedation and conscious sedation techniques. This type of sedation, often referred to as “twilight sedation” offers patients the opportunity to have some or all of your dentistry and/or surgery done with little to no memory of the procedure. Why put yourself through undue stress and anxiety? Inquire about IV sedation for your appointments today.
To accompany these procedures our doctors are highly trained in Basic Life Saving (BLS) and Advanced
Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
Safety is First and Foremost
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Our doctors have a strong commitment to furthering our education in the dental sciences. As techniques and science evolve, it is our responsibility to make sure we stay at the tip of the spear of oral health medicine. We do this by devoting countless hours to continuing education lectures, seminars, and conventions. We also believe in cross collaboration between our doctors and local specialists so our patients can feel confident that we are able to provide the best available health advice.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
