Meeting our Friendly Dental Team

When it’s time for your appointment, we will show you to your treatment room and get you settled. Next, you will meet with our hygienist who will look for signs of decay or gum disease, talk to you about any concerns you have and take x-rays as necessary.

She will then introduce you to Dr. Vernon Smith, DMD or Dr. Mohammad Zaman, DDS who will review the results of your evaluation, explain the treatment we recommend and why, and work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.

At the conclusion of your meeting with your doctor, we will arrange future appointments as necessary, discuss our financing options, and explain how your insurance benefits apply.
