What our patients say about us...
I started going here a year ago or so and I love his dentist office! I’ve had a different lady work with me each visit and every single one is so nice and sweet and easy going. I’ve only had Dr. Preston work on me and he is very friendly, professional and does a great job! I don’t see myself going to any other office anytime soon! Definitely worth more than 5 stars!

The entire staff does a great job! They know you by name right when you step in the door, and they do a great job making sure you are comfortable throughout the entire visit. My son, husband, and I all appreciate the care we receive at White Smiles!
Christina B.
I took my 5-year old son in for a check up and cleaning, and it was a great experience. The hygienist was awesome with kids. She showed him all the cool tools and made sure he was comfortable before doing each procedure. Dr. Preston was positive, professional and personable. We will definitely be back!

These early visits are primarily to help kids grow accustomed to the sights, sounds, and smells of the dentist office. As parents of young children themselves, both Drs. White are familiar with communicating with kids in an age-appropriate manner. Our goal is to set your children on the path to a lifetime of taking care of their oral health.

We recommend that our patients see us twice a year for examinations and cleanings. This is the best way for us to stay on top of your oral health, including making sure your gums are healthy. Because early detection is so important, we also conduct oral cancer screenings at your routine exams.

I don't think I can afford to take care of my teeth. What should I do?

We understand that taking care of your dental health can be a significant investment, especially if your teeth are damaged and you need restorative treatments. We accept most insurances and will even file the insurance claim for you.

man wonderingFor your convenience, we accept most major credit cards. We also offer CareCredit financing to help spread out the cost of taking care of your teeth. You can apply online for no- and low-cost financing that will fit into your monthly budget.

What many people don’t consider, however, is that regular dental cleanings and exams are the most cost-effective way to take care of your teeth. This allows early detection of small problems before they grow into more costly and sometimes painful problems that usually require more expensive and invasive treatment. Many insurance plans cover these preventive visits 100 percent, and we are happy to check your coverage for you.

With twice-yearly examinations and preventive care, we can stay ahead of dental issues. Some concerns, such as gum disease, present with no symptoms, and the only way you can know for sure that your gums are healthy is to see the dentist regularly.

Good home care is also essential. Be sure you brush your teeth at least twice each day and floss at least once to keep your mouth clean and healthy. Let us know if you have any questions about maintaining your best oral health!
