What to Expect

When you visit any of the Sierra Smiles locations, our goal is to make you feel as comfortable, safe, and relaxed as possible. We also take our commitment to Complete Health Dentistry seriously, so you’ll probably encounter some new procedures and screenings with us that you may not have had at a dentist’s office before. Here’s what you can expect as a new patient.

“Sierra Smiles is such a great place! They have this awesome payment plan for those of us who don’t have dental insurance which helped me tremendously when I had to get 3 teeth filled. I highly recommend Sierra Smiles for your next dental journey. You WON'T be disappointed."

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Complete Health Dentistry?

Dentists, doctors, and researchers have found a clear connection between your mouth and the rest of your body. In fact, bacteria, gum disease, and bone loss in your mouth can lead directly to diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and diabetes. Complete Health Dentistry works to educate you about how attending to your oral health will help you prevent chronic illness in the future. We use the latest technology to help screen for potential issues and create individualized treatment plans to help you become healthier and happier than ever before!

Do you take insurance?

Yes. We bill ALL dental insurances. We are in-network with many insurances, and even if we are not in-network you can still come to see us! We have an amazing Smile Advantage Dental Savings program for all those who do not have dental insurance that will save you a lot of money, without the hassles of waiting periods and maximums. We have also partnered with CareCredit to give you options and make financing your dental treatment easy.

Why is the first appointment so long?

We value your smile, your oral health, and your overall health. Your initial new patient appointment will help us set a baseline for your health, do thorough screenings, teach you about Complete Health Dentistry, and give us a chance to make a plan for improving and maintaining your overall health.
