Affordable Care

We accept most insurance plans and work hard to maximize your insurance benefits! No insurance? We offer an individual monthly payment plan to help you get the smile you want at a cost that works for you.

Trusted Advice

Years of experience and continuing education help Dr. Penrod and his staff provide state-of-the-art procedures and comfort. Most importantly, we listen to you and explain all your options before proceeding with any treatment.

I was very impressed! I'm a medical device engineer myself and haven't seen this type of advanced technology completely integrated under one roof. I not only had X-Ray's and a full panoramic scan of my entire mouth but during my operation an imaging system used multiple images of my teeth to form a complete 3D rendering. It was very reassuring to see it done correctly without possible human error.

The staff was very helpful in understanding my needs as well and put together a long term plan to best utilize my insurance.

I highly recommend this talented and advanced group of dentists. Thanks again!
