Children and special needs patients are welcome here. Our staff team members are especially skilled and enjoy working with youngsters. We have an outstanding selection of fun things in our toy box too.
All our emergency equipment for adults is duplicated for little people too; so you can be confident that our little patients are treated as safely as our full-sized ones.
Young children usually require sedation to ensure cooperation, even if the procedure is simple. This not only allows us to carry out treatment under the best circumstance (a non-moving patient) but also helps youngsters have no recollection of uncomfortable visits. Studies show that those who have had a traumatic visit as a youngster generally avoid the dentist as adults and suffer more severe dental disease throughout life.
Every person’s mouth is unique; so treatment needs are different for every patient. After a thorough examination we will explain your treatment options and give you an estimate of your expected insurance coverage and out-of-pocket costs. There will be no surprises. For treatment that involves several stages, the total cost does not need to be paid up front.
We accept cash, debit cards, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. We can also help arrange financing, including no-interest payment options through our financing partner Care Credit.

Dental insurance will usually have benefits for oral surgery including extraction of teeth and even general anesthesia. Certain dental insurance plans will pay benefits for implant surgical procedures, and some cover the restorative treatments only. Medical insurance will sometimes cover treatment to replace teeth that were lost due to accidents or tumors. We will assist you in estimating your out-of-pocket costs after we evaluate your insurance coverage.
Dental insurance will generally cover the cost of your consultation. If you do not have dental insurance, your consultation is complimentary. If you do have insurance, we do a complimentary benefits check too.
Our office accepts most major dental insurances, even many types with a “closed panel.” If our office is not a preferred provider in your insurance network, there may still be benefits available. Please bring your insurance information with you to the consultation. We can evaluate your insurance features and help you take advantage of every penny your insurance will offer.
We can keep you completely comfortable throughout your treatment. Since most every procedure can be performed while you are sound asleep, the actual implant procedures are a breeze. We always prescribe medications to keep you comfortable after treatment.
Recuperation varies from one procedure to another and even one person to another. Routine procedures like tooth extractions or dental implants require just a day of down time and only mild discomfort. More extensive bone grafting or wisdom teeth removal may need several days of recuperation and strong pain medication. We will carefully review your planned treatment at consultation and make sure we have you set up for a smooth recuperation.
You will never be forced to go with no teeth. You can wear temporary or provisional teeth during all healing intervals after tooth extractions or dental implant treatments. Many dental implant situations allow a temporary crown or implant bridge to be placed immediately after implantation.
Minor oral surgeries can occasionally cause minor complications such as infection, sinus floor injury, nerve injury (resulting in prolonged numbness), excessive bleeding or prolonged recuperation. Serious complications are extremely remote, and the potential is related to your general health.
At your consultation, we will inform you of all your treatment options and address any of your questions or concerns. There is usually one option that is the best, but there may be several alternatives. The pros and cons of each treatment choice can be discussed so you can make an informed decision.
"It's an amazing level of care... Dr. Stout even called me the evening of the surgery to see how I was recuperating."
- Luis O.,
"Doctor Stout's secretary found a way to get my insurance to pay for treatment instead of me. That was a pleasant surprise."
