Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them. We file insurance for you and
participate with Always Care.
Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. Charges are payable at the time of treatment.
We accept payments by cash, checks, and all major credit cards. Please ask a member of our staff, and we will review our payment options to accommodate your financial needs. If special arrangements are needed, please talk to our office manager prior
to receiving service.
Although we participate with a few major dental insurances, it is difficult to participate in all insurances. We welcome you to our office even If we are out of network with your insurance. With many out of network plans, there is often little or no difference in the out of pocket expense going out of network with our office. We are happy to discuss all of
these options with you.
Meet Our Team!
Our primary asset is our talented and friendly staff...
Your child’s appointment will be comfortable and enjoyable because of the extensive training our team has received and the relaxed environment
that we have created.
Our team members enjoy a long term relationship with both the office and our patients. Several team members have been working in the practice for over 30 years. In fact, when you total up the number of years the team has been in the practice, we have a combined experience of over 300 years. Many of our current patient’s parents were also seen
by our office as a child!
We cultivate a relationship with each of our patients, which not only ensures better children’s dental care, but also turns a visit with our doctors and team into a visit between friends. Our team members look forward to enjoying a long-term relationship with
both you and your children.
• We take special notes on each child during the visit.
• We care about what techniques work the
best for your child.
• We create an atmosphere of collaboration with parents, making sure you have a clear understanding
of the treatment, follow-up, and solutions to your
child’s dental health.
• We believe in continuing education and as we keep ourselves up-to-date we will also keep you up-to-date on the latest equipment and techniques used to
treat your children.

We are dedicated to great dental experiences.
We, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry,
recommend you bring your child in by his or her first birthday.
During your first visit, you will be introduced to our Pediatric Dental Team, given an office tour and discuss your child’s unique smile and ways to keep it beautiful for years to come.
Depending on the age of your child, he or she will either be given a knee-to-knee examination (where your baby’s head will rest on our doctor’s knee while their body is on your lap) or a regular exam in the dental couch.
We request that you complete our First Visit Forms prior to arriving for your appointment. This helps our office keep your and everyone else’ scheduled visit on time.
Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Oral hygiene instructions will also be given with suggestions to help your child care for their own teeth. In most cases, we will also clean their teeth on this visit, and provide an evaluation that will outline any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric Dentistry is the dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association which encompasses comprehensive dental care for all children, from infancy through adolescence.
A children’s dental specialist is a practitioner who, after becoming a general dentist (often called a family dentist), has completed an additional two years of post-doctoral training in the recognition and treatment of children’s dental and orthodontic problems.
Specialty education includes child psychology, behavior guidance, preventive techniques, restorative dentistry, interceptive and comprehensive orthodontic care (braces), and the treatment of children with special needs.
A thorough exam will be done to evaluate the health of your child's teeth, gums and mouth. We will evaluate your child's growth and development and check to make sure your child's oral development is on track. Our office will make child specific recommendations for the need of sealants, fluoride and other services based on your child's individual needs and habits.
Drs. Simmons, Young and Milling are trained to evaluate proper positioning of teeth and jaw structures, checking for the influence of any habits your child may have.
We strive to make each visit fun,educational
