We are glad you’re here and are very much looking forward to meeting you and helping you with your smile and dental health needs. At Denture Artistry Implants-Crowns-Veneers we want you to have the best dental experience possible.

We promise to listen to your hopes and fears, anxieties and concerns. To provide care without pressure, and advice without obligation. Our goal is to provide you with a thorough exam and spend quality time with you reviewing your dental needs and discuss a treatment plan to improve your overall dental health and smile. All first appointments are complimentary and we promise to provide:

  1. 30+ years professional experience with judgment-free care
  2. Honest, transparent pricing that is more affordable—please read our blog post, “How we make our services more affordable
  3. No surprises—clear communication and treatment plan
  4. Flexible financing—with several options for 3rd party financing

During your first visit and included in our thorough exam, we will:

  1. Take a panoramic screening x-ray.
  2. Evaluate your general health in addition to your oral health.
  3. Evaluate for tooth decay and gum or bone disease.
  4. We will screen you for oral cancer; feel the area under your jaw, the sides of your neck and the insides of your lips and cheeks, as well as examine the sides of your tongue and the roof and floor of your mouth.
  5. Evaluate your needs for removable prosthetics, crowns, veneers or tooth replacement with a dental implant.
  6. Check your bite and jaw for any problems.
  7. Demonstrate proper cleaning techniques for your teeth or dentures.
  8. We will also ask about any health challenges you have or medications you are taking and discuss how they might affect your oral health.
  9. If you have dentures or bridges—we will examine how well they fit and discuss any need for adjustments as well as how implants may be a better option for you.
  10. Your dental exam might also include counseling about diet, use of tobacco products and other lifestyle factors that can affect your oral health.
  11. We utilize the latest technology with a 3D cone beam computerized tomography. This type of X-ray provides a much sharper and 3-D view of your skull, jaw and teeth so that we can better diagnose your needs. See our information on our 3D Cone Beam Technology.
  12. We will do our very best to deliver equal doses of care, honesty and expertise, because we are confident you’ll trust us knowing we have your best interests at heart.

Our Honest and
Transparent Pricing

Making care affordable.

Our purpose is to provide you with the most beautiful smile and experience as well as the most affordable care options available in Central Oregon.

We know in our hearts, that we will be providing the best patient experience with high quality care, transparent and honest fees. Come give us a visit. We know you will be pleasantly surprised by our beautiful state-of-the-art office, unique model and the high level of dental care. Our motto is Affordable Smiles for Everyone!

Our goal is to provide you with the best estimated cost for the services you choose. Sometimes, due to clinical issues specific to your case, additional services could be required. In such cases, our dentist will consult with you prior to providing the services.

We are making our fees more affordable and keeping the highest level of care possible by:

  1. Our unique model—an in-house lab. This not only eliminates a “middle man” but also allows us to control the quality 100%. By creating all prosthetics; (crowns, veneers, bridges and dentures) in our very own in-house lab, we eliminate the third party fees an outside lab would charge. This also saves you, our patients, time, as we can create most of our crowns, veneers, bridges and dentures in the same day. We all know the saying, “Time is money!” and we promise to save you both.
  2. Providing third-party financing. We offer third-party financing options such as Wells Fargo Health Advantage Financing and Lending Club. Once payment has been made we will begin treatment.
  3. We will input your dental insurance information and print a claim form for you to submit to your insurance. Payment from your insurance company will be sent directly to you. This policy, while might not be the norm in most dental offices today, allows us to save internal costs that can be passed on to you, our patients, in lower, more affordable fees. We aim to be below the average fees for our specialty services of all dental offices in Central Oregon. This is a win-win for you, our valued patients. You are able to save on average 30% below “Usual & Customary Fees” of Bend, Oregon and receive your Dental Insurance benefits.
  4. All of our fees are based on payment at time of service.
  5. Providing specialized care. By specializing in specific areas of dentistry, implants, crowns, bridges, veneers and dentures, we will be creating beautiful smiles by concentrating on what we do best. Our staff are the experts in these disciplines. Creating more efficiency in our workflow allows us to charge lower fees.
  6. Investing in technology. We have and will always have the latest technology; in fact, it is one of our core values. The recent advances in technology make dentistry, faster, easier, better and more efficient. Efficiency allows us to keep our fees lower and quality means fewer re-dos.
  7. Professional staff and Clinical Skills. We all have a long history in the dental industry. Experience creates quality and efficiency which allows us to keep our fees low.

Patient Satisfaction

Our guarantee.

We know that a new implant, crown, bridge or veneer or denture not only improve smiles, but more importantly—they improve lives. They will help renew confidence in your appearance and help you eat better—having a direct impact on your overall health.

Our Patient Satisfaction Commitment simply means we want you to be completely satisfied with the services you receive at our practice. This applies not only to the dentistry we provide, but also to the kind of patient care you deserve to receive. Our goal is to do the best we can to meet your expectations as we help you with your experience in wearing dentures or new veneers, crowns or implants.

Please understand, in order to meet this goal, we need you to work with us. It takes time getting use to new dentures. They are not a natural part of your body, so adjusting at first may be uncomfortable and difficult. Please be patient and allow us the opportunity and time to solve any problems you may have.

Adjustments

We perform adjustments at no charge during the first 100 days after you receive your dentures. After 100 days, adjustments are available at a nominal fee.

Patient Concerns

Please discuss any concerns you have with the dentist and office staff. We appreciate your feedback.

Limited Implant Lifetime Replacement

We will replace your dental implants for life. This promise is made to you with your commitment to the following guidelines:

  1. Regular implant hygiene maintenance. Just like your real teeth need hygiene cleanings every six months—so do your implants. We have an Implant Maintenance Program (which also includes regular teeth cleanings) with our specially trained Hygienist. Please ask about this affordable service we offer.
  2. Are a non-smoker. Smokers have a greater chance of Implant failure. Please discuss with our doctor if you are a smoker, we will review your options and risks of failure for implant dentistry.
  3. Are not an uncontrolled diabetic. Unfortunately diabetics are at a greater risk of Implant failure. Please discuss with our doctor if you are diabetic and we will review your options and risks of failure for implant dentistry with you.
