Discover A Fresh Approach!

Aren’t you tired of the current way dental care is delivered? It’s just TOO expensive and an insurance company limits me in everything I need or want to have done. Don’t you feel that the medical/dental industry isn’t curing disease, but masking symptoms with drugs and toxic chemicals? Aren’t you weary of being referred to expensive specialists for everything you need to have done just because your dentist doesn’t have the skills, expertise, or technology to deliver the highest quality comprehensive care? Search no further! We offer a new and fresh approach to all these old ways.

How we’re different

  • Dental membership plan that gives you and your family all the care needed for regular checkups to keep your oral health on track.
  • In-House Insurance Replacement Plan that will drop your dental care costs to more that half of what you would pay at a regular dental office under corporate insurance plans.

Membership plan
