Kathy: Dr. Hellwig is very passionate about his implant work here in the office, and what's nice is that we do everything here in one office. So we can take care of you from day one, to our first appointment to the day we deliver your final crown or finally prosthesis denture or whatever that may be for you.

Narrator: Complimenting the treatment team is the practice's commitment to leading edge, state-of-the-art dental technology, from the latest in 2-D x-rays to laser gum treatments and phase contrast microscopy, that allows patients to see the actual bacteria in their mouth and its effects. Rounding out the technology focus is our CEREC same day crown equipment and more of Dr. Hellwig's technical artistry. We know that dental treatments can be a substantial investment. To help patients afford the care they want and need, we accept and offer several credit and financing options to compliment your treatment plan.
Dr. Hellwig: Our philosophy is that the treatment that we recommend needs to be catered to what the patient thinks his or her budget is.
Kathy: The nice thing is that when we do a treatment plan, that all services are included, all your follow-ups, your post-ops, your x-rays. So when we do a procedure and we quote you a price or a fee, that's going to include everything from start to finish, and we back our work.
