Do you see children?
Yes, we see children of all ages, but we usually start dental check ups around age 3, unless there is a problem prior to this.
What Insurances do you accept?
Please contact our office to verify acceptance of your specific dental insurance plan. We accept most traditional insurance plans. We are service providers of Delta Dental, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Aetna PPO, Guardian, and Cigna PPO, just to name a few.
As a courtesy to you, our staff will check your insurance coverage and estimate your responsibility for the procedures to be performed. However, we strongly encourage you to know your insurance benefits since this is a contract between you and your insurance company. We will send in pre-estimates for some or all procedures.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept check, cash, or major credit cards. We are happy to file insurance for your reimbursement as long as you are free to choose your own dentist. We also offer our patients CareCredit. CareCredit lets you begin your treatment immediately, then pay over time with interest-free, low monthly payments that can easily fit into your budget. Like a credit card, but better!
Please contact our Financial Coordinator for details on all payment options as well as visiting CareCredit.com for more information on this service.
Do you take Mass Health?
No, we are currently not a Mass Health dental provider.
What is your latest appointment?
On Tuesdays we are open until 6:00 PM, so our last appointment for an adult cleaning is at 5:00 PM, or 5:30 for a child. Dr. Naomi also sees patients until 6:00 PM on Tuesdays so that last appointment time varies with appointment type.
How long is a typical first appointment?
Most of our patients are first seen for a cleaning and exam, which is an hour appointment. At this appointment we come up with a comprehensive treatment plan for you and schedule you for follow up appointments accordingly.
However, if you are having a specific problem and would like to be seen with the doctor first, we can accommodate that as well. These appointment times will vary depending on the problem you are having.
Do you extract wisdom teeth?
We do simple extractions at our office, but we refer to an oral surgeon for most surgical complex, and wisdom tooth extractions.
Do you accept online payments?
We are currently working on an online payment system, so this feature will be coming soon!
Where are you located?
We are located across from Harvard Vanguard, behind the NorthShore Mall. We ARE NOT in the Medical Dental Building, but in the light blue condos behind that building. The address of our office is 5 Essex Green Drive, Suite 21 in Peabody.
Can you do Crowns in a day?
We use a scanner to create 3D models for most of our crowns, which takes the place of a traditional impression. This 3D model goes to a lab which custom makes your crown to match and blend with any small color details in your surrounding teeth. We feel like this allows for a better esthetic result for our patients and for this reason, we do not do crowns in a day. However, we do use the latest scanning technology in creating crowns that have extremely precise fit and function!
