Well, wow, I am 53 years old. I have been a dentist in Atlanta for over 25 years. I have worked in dental clinics, I have owned and run a fixed fee discount DMO dental practice and I have run an insurance-driven PPO managed care practice. And, finally, I have been lucky enough to build one of the premier quality care dental practices in all of Atlanta.
We have positioned ourselves to accept almost all forms of dental insurance. And, we have created our own in-house dental plan for our uninsured patients. We have a commitment to keep our fees not only locally, but nationally, fair and competitive.
But, this year, I lost sight a bit of what I enjoy most. I enjoy surrounding myself with a dental team that enjoys going to work and spending hours a day together caring for our patients overall health. I appreciate patients who want to be part of a dental practice where relationships are the cornerstone of our dental care for our patients. And, I enjoy giving the best dental care that I possibly can to patients who appreciate that care, expertise and experience.
In 2014 I became a little too caught up in trying to compete for the dental consumer on a ‘bottom dollar price only’ level. At Artistic Dentistry of Atlanta we offer so much love, care and devotion to our patients to ever be bottom dollar. We stand apart from an average dental practice with technological advances that impress even our competition.
I apologize to those of you who are concerned only about the cheapest price in dentistry. I cannot be the dentist for you. My dental team cannot be the dental team for you. Our fees are so incredibly fair for all that we offer.
I look forward to continuing to care for all of our existing patients, and all of our new patients to come, who want our best. We deliver tender loving care with the latest technology available for your comfort and convenience. I apologize for letting a small percentage of you down on my ‘lowest price available’ attempt. And I look forward to an amazing 2015 as we continue to bring you the latest in dental care and comfort at very reasonable fees.
