"Dr. Nate is as good as they come! Super warm environment, upgraded finishes throughout, very technologically advanced facility, and they took a bazillion pics of my teeth for analysis and accuracy. Tamara was a joy to hang with as she prepped me & Lori jetted through my cleaning with precision. Not to mention I had my 1st cavity ever... the entire team made me feel at ease and the process of filling it wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be!! No seriously, scale of 1-10 the pain was a 1 & I'm a baby y'all. If you enjoy a clean office, the latest in dental tech, and having a TEAM work with you during your visits, I highly recommend the great folks at Start Smiling dental."- N.B. / Yelp / Aug 30, 2018

"I must say that if you've read the reviews, they are all true. This was the best dental experience I've ever had. I had not been to the dentist in a while, so of course I was a little nervous about what they may find. However, they made me feel very comfortable, answered all my questions, asked me all the right questions, and overall did an excellent job. The staff is exceptional, right along with the service. I highly recommend this office if you're looking for high quality dental care."- T.T. / Google / Aug 30, 2018

What to Expect
Your dentist will make impressions of your upper and lower teeth and take digital X-rays, which will be sent to a dental laboratory. The custom-fit night guard will be crafted from high quality materials and returned to the dentist. You will have your new night guard checked and fitted by your dentist, who may make minor adjustments for comfort.
While fitting the night guard, the dentist will give the patient more specific care instructions on how to clean and store your night guard. With proper care, a night guard can be used for several years. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Your dentist will check for general wear at your regular dental appointments and determine when your night guard needs to be repaired or replaced.
Some or all of the cost may be covered by dental insurance if it the patient has visible wear on their teeth from bruxism. Our office can confirm your benefits through your insurance to determine your out-of-pocket cost. For patient's without insurance or if your insurance does not cover your night guard, we accept many forms of payment and have financing plans available.
