Request an Appointment


We work with most PPO and Premier insurances! To learn more about your plan, our insurance and payment coordinator will be happy to assist you in determining what types of benefits are available to you. Please contact our office, and we will answer any questions you may have.


Payment arrangements for account balances are due at the time services are rendered. We accept many forms of payment including cash, most major credit cards, and personal checks. You can also speak with our office administrator about the flexible payment options available for major dental services.

For your convenience, we have arranged a payment plan through a third party which helps you receive your treatment in a timely manner. If you have lingering questions concerning the financial aspect of your visit, our office administrators are on-hand during our regular business hours to answer your questions and address your concerns.

New Patients

We know that your time is valuable, which is why we offer a simplified office experience with online patient forms that you can complete prior to your appointment. This streamlines your initial visit as you will spend less time in the waiting area. Additionally, these forms help us to better understand your background and allow us to provide you the most effective care possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the patient forms or your appointment.

Please note that you’ll need the latest version of Adobe Acrobat to download all patient forms.

"Dr. Yelena is quite frankly the best dentist I have every had."

“Good dentistry is both an art and science, and Dr. Yelena personally cares about how your teeth look and feel. Not only the basics but the aesthetics as she is a perfectionist and wants the best for her clients. ”
