How can we help you?

Having questions when choosing a dentist is natural! After all, your oral health is an important part of your overall health. Here is a list of some of the most common questions we receive. If you do not see yours listed below, please give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you.


Your dentist in Gretna, LA is always happy to bill various insurance types on your behalf to recoup costs. Additionally, our team works to help you maximize benefits so you can get the care you deserve.

Common insurances we submit on behalf of our patients include:

  • Cigna PPO
  • Delta Dental PPO
  • DentalQuest (Healthy Blue & Aetna) Medicaid
  • Guardian PPO
  • Louisiana Healthcare Connections Medicaid
  • Met Life PPO
  • United Healthcare Medicaid
  • United Healthcare PPO

Unfortunately, insurance does not cover all treatments and procedures, and there is typically a yearly cap that does not extend into the next year. Because of this, we accept financing plans so our patients can get the dental treatments they need.

The Pay Simple program allows us to work with many credit scores and offer financing for up to 36 months. This method requires a down payment and a monthly payment plan with interest. Payments are automatically deducted from your on-file checking account.

We also accept CareCredit, which may offer interest-free financing to those who qualify.

Our dental team member can walk you through the application processes to learn whether you qualify for either of these programs.
