Appointments - We  have made requesting an appointment a simple process via our Web site.

Our Commitment to service – We believe strongly in offering superior patient care and excellent service we provide to our patients. We can only this level of service if we are committed to the concept of treating each patient in as complete and customized a manner as possible.

Insurance and Billing
We Are Committed to Excellence - Not Volume.  We are not a PPO, DMO, or other high-volume dental enterprise. If cost is your only concern, while we truly respect this, ours is not the practice for you. We do not view you or the services we provide to you as a commodity.  We will strive to provide you with truly individualized services in a low-volume, personalized manner. You will feel comfortable and informed every time you meet with us, ours is a practice committed to excellence and individualized patient care.

Financing Options
There is financing to help you pay for treatments and procedures your insurance doesn’t cover. We offer No Interest* financing with low minimum monthly payment options so you can get what you want, when you want it. With three simple steps, including an instant approval process, it’s easy to apply for Care Credit. After you are approved, feel free to use Care Credit for the services you choose and get the  treatments you want and need.

Technology and Equipment

Our office uses state-of-the-art dental equipment and techniques to increase effectiveness. These include:

  • Intra-oral Camera: An intra-oral camera allows us to examine your teeth up close and personal and allows you to see what the doctor sees and  is invaluable as a teaching tool.
  • Digital X-rays: These allow the doctors to use lower amounts of exposure compared to traditional film dental x-rays. These new technologies allow us to examine the health of your teeth and supporting bone structure in a safer and more advanced way!
  • DIAGNOdent® Dental Cavity Detector: This allows the doctors to use the diagnostic power of a laser to determine if teeth have dental decay on the chewing surfaces of the tooth. This, combined with the other traditional systems, allows us to detect decay when it is considerably easier to repair. This results in easier, faster, and hopefully more comfortable dental treatment for patients.
  • Digital Imaging Software: This allows us to take an image of your smile and show you smile improvement possibilities. Whether you are interested in changing the size, shape, or brightness of your smile, this imaging software can help you to visualize the possibilities.
  • Paperless patient records.

Our Commitment to Continuing Education
Our office is strongly committed to improving and refining our knowledge. Techniques change, and we want to adapt to the most advanced procedures and philosophies. We are sincerely dedicated to consistently improving ourselves and grow and expand our capabilities every year. This can only be accomplished by an overwhelming commitment to improving our knowledge base and refining and improving our skills. We want our patients to feel like they receive treatment from a well informed and committed Dentist and team.

Dr. D’Souza Takes the Time to Thoroughly Consult With You
This is the hallmark of our practice. After determining your Medical and Dental health, Dr. D’Souza will discuss your dental goals. For some patients, diagnosis is the first and only step for treatment. For others, a complete smile makeover by Dr. D’Souza is requested. We do what you need and want to do. We empower our patients to become involved in this process, and we respect their treatment wishes. At this appointment the doctor will review your dental health with the aid of digital photographs and digital and radiographs. Both you and the dentist will determine what needs to be done, when it should be done, and how much you can afford. After you and the doctors are armed with this information, we can proceed forward as you choose. Having this information is key because you will have a complete diagnosis that will allow you to move forward and make informed decisions.You can choose to start when you are ready.
