Dr. Saleh or Dr. Shaer will explain the status of your oral health, let you know if you need dental treatment, and discuss your options. We’ll let you know the cost, time involved, and results you can expect for each treatment option. We will also explain how treatment can be made affordable for you.
We ensure that every visit you have with us is positive, personalized, and thorough.
