Our Mission and Our Smile Protection Plan
Our mission here at Tri-Valley Dental is to help you achieve optimum dental health with the least amount of effort on your behalf.
While we love spending time with our patients, we recognize that they don’t want to spend their day in a dental office. We care about our patients; so we strive to keep them comfortable while we provide state-of-the-art treatment in a friendly, hospitable environment. It’s a big part of our smile protection plan. We are proud to say we have 4.9 out of 5 stars from 70 Google reviews.
Here are five things we do for our patients to show them we truly care.
We Use the Latest Advancements in Dental Technology
We use the latest technology advancements in our office to provide you with the best, safest, and fastest dental service possible. The CEREC, Spectra, and Gemini laser are just three of the amazing pieces of technology we utilize here in the office to provide superior treatment.
The CEREC™ system creates same-day crowns as well as other dental prosthetics such as inlays, onlays, and bridges. This innovative system allows us to provide restoration services in just a few hours during one visit. These restorative services once took multiple visits over several weeks with painful temporary solutions in between each visit.
Spectra™ is a computer-based dental technology that aids in finding tooth decay in your teeth. Using fluorescence, Spectra allows us to detect cavities in the deep fissures and smooth surfaces that would otherwise go unnoticed in X-ray images. This new technology helps us to be proactive with early detection and to treat decay long before it causes extensive damage requiring more intensive restoration treatments.
The Gemini® laser therapy not only allows us to correct gum disease and other soft-tissue injuries in less time, but it also lets us do so with less bleeding and discomfort. There is less risk of infection and shorter recovery time than traditional surgical treatment methods.
We Have a Wide Variety of Dental Services
We provide a wide variety of services at Tri-Valley dental to meet your oral health goals and needs.
Of course, you can always expect to receive standard preventative care such as periodontal therapy, fluoride treatment, cleanings, X-rays, tooth extraction, cancer screening, and root canals.
We also provide restorative and cosmetic procedures including implants, dentures, veneers, bridges, MTM™ clear aligners, whitening, crowns, tooth-colored fillings, gum contouring, as well as inlays and onlays.
By providing an array of treatment options, you can have almost all of your dental needs attended to here in the office by the same team you’ve come to love and trust.
We’re Always Continuing Our Education
Continuing education is critical in the dental field. Not just to maintain licensure but also to provide the best possible experience for every patient. As technology rapidly advances, so too does our ability to provide dental services in less time and with less discomfort.
Dr. Gary May is a member of the American Dental Association and of the Omaha District Dental Society. He has completed many continuing education classes and courses at both the Pankey Institute and at LVI Global. And Dr. Maria Cacho is a member of the American Dental Association, the Nebraska Dental Association, and the Omaha District Dental Society.
We’re Friendly and Welcoming
We want to make your visits as easy and comfortable as possible from day one. We have new patient forms available on our site for you to easily print and fill out at your own convenience before your initial appointment.
Once you receive your treatment plan, we are happy to estimate fees and insurance reimbursement before beginning your recommended treatments. We’ll also gladly assist you by filing necessary insurance forms for you.
Carolyn H. says, “Pleased with the quality of care we receive at Tri-Valley Dental. We are warmly welcomed by name when we arrive and given knowledgeable and professional care during treatment.”
And Steve M. says, “I love Tri-Valley Dental! They are always so friendly and answer any questions I have! I highly recommend using this practice. They are a very fun and approachable office. They make you feel really comfortable and take time to listen and educate you on all your dental needs.”
The Smile Protection Plan
We always make our treatment plan recommendations based on what is best for your health as the patient—not what your insurance will or will not cover. Unfortunately, your insurance doesn’t prioritize your oral health in this way.
This is why we have begun offering our Smile Protection Plan. We’re excited to bring you a new option for financing your dental health and believe it’s a win-win for everyone.
We find that patients often become frustrated when they discover how little their insurance is going to cover despite the hefty premium they are paying each month. And in some cases, patients don’t have coverage at all and can’t afford to get the regular cleanings they know they need to maintain good oral health.
The Smile Protection Plan is a way to skip all the red tape and hoops insurance companies force both patients and providers to jump through just to get the coverage they deserve. There aren’t any surprises as to what’s covered and what isn’t, and there are no wait periods before you can access the benefits you’re already paying for.
Our Smile Protection Plans are bundled preventative dental services that can be paid for in one upfront payment or through monthly installments—much like you would with insurance premiums. Those who are enrolled in the plan also get fee reductions for additional services they may need. You can learn more about the plans here.
