Why We're Worth the Short Trip

large tooth icon Comprehensive Services

Is it time for your regular dental checkup? Think you might have a cavity? Want to replace your missing teeth? Need to do something about your teeth grinding? No matter what you might need, our practice can provide it. Dr. Sonia Dilolli and our team work hard every day to deliver a wide variety of services at a level unmatched by any other practice. We’re always trying to improve ourselves so that we can provide high-quality dentistry for more and more people. We strive to form long, trusting relationships with our patients, and we’re able to do that because they know they can always rely on us.

Dr. Dilolli chose to go into dentistry for one simple reason: she loves helping people. Beginning at the age of 12, her dream was to help people improve both their health and self-confidence at the same time. This dream has motivated her to attend some of the best dental schools in the country and frequently seek out continuing education courses. Also, she’s made sure to choose a team that has the exact same motivation as her. When you come to our office, you can trust that every person you see is working hard to give you the best dental experience possible.

Many, many people feel anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist. We can attest to that fact because we treat nervous patients every day. We completely empathize with these patients, and we never judge them for feeling this way. Rather, we do everything we can to help them feel calm, cool, and relaxed during their appointment. In addition to creating a warm and welcoming environment, we can also offer them something called sedation dentistry. With these techniques, we can protect our patients from discomfort while calming their nervous thoughts at the same time.

For many, the stress associated with dental care has little to do with what goes on in the treatment chair, but rather the cost of the care itself. Too many people feel like they simply can’t afford quality dentistry, and most practices do very little to help them. We believe that excellent dentistry should come at an excellent value, which is why we always work with our patients to make sure their care fits easily into their budget. We accept most PPO insurance plans, we can help you get low to no interest financing, and we even offer our own in-house discount plan that can give you all the benefits of insurance without any of the restrictions or hassles.
