Staff

In addition to the best office manager on the planet, my wife, Sabrina, we have a dental hygienist. I do not have a dental assistant and here's why: Several years ago, I broke my wrist (playing hockey!). In the aftermath of recovery, I was unable to work for almost 8 weeks. My assistant was able to find other work, and upon returning to practice I was too slow to need an assistant. What I discovered was that having no assist allowed me to interact more with the patient in the chair. I believe that I have a better relationship with my patient because I don't have an assistant. So for now, I will remain solo in the operatory.  

Karen Lewis has been a hygienist for more than 30 years.. She lives in the area with her husband, Greg, and a new puppy named Disney. Karen is here on Tuesday and Thursdays.

Harley Davidson Pooper. A border Collie with a love for playing catch, she comes to work with a sassy attitude and a desire to be loved by all.

Sammi (a.k.a. Samuel L. JacKson,, Samsonite, and Tham)- Part Australian shepherd, part Border Collie, she is Eeyore-like in temperament, but she loves a belly rub and any kind of meat product. 

Patient Info

We want your experience at our office to be 100% positive. We encourage you to involve yourself in your own treatment throughout our relationship. 

An informed and involved client is most likely to achieve the highest level of health. Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your initial visit:

a list of medications you are presently taking
any previous x-rays (email to drhill@davidhilldmd.com)

Your Initial Visit

Your initial appointment will usually consist of a complete evaluation including: 

medical and dental history
complete oral exam
necessary x-rays
periodontal examination
examination of the teeth and bite

The first visit is an opportunity for us to assess your dental health and needs. A dental ‘cleaning is typically not done at this initial visit, although we can arrange this if needed. After this visit, we will schedule the cleanings and treatments necessary. All treatment options and associated costs are clearly spelled out before any treatment is started. IMPORTANT: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the first visit.

We accept Premium or PPO insurance plans--some companies we work with are Delta Dental, Met Life, Aetna, Anthem, Guardian, Meritian, Principal, and United Health Care--there are many more. We cannot accept Medical, Medicare, Dentical or any HMO or DMO insurance plans.

Appointment Policy

We are open Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.

Our office respects your time; therefore, we make every effort to see you on schedule. In return, we require that you be on time for appointments and that you inform us at least 48 hours in advance if you will be unable to keep your committed appointment. Please keep in mind we reserve this time just for you. In the event that you fail to keep an appointment or cancel without sufficient notice, we reserve the right to charge your account a nominal fee consistent with the type and length of the appointment.
