MAKING DENTISTRY AFFORDABLE
Some important ways we try to make dental work affordable are to only offer treatment that is absolutely necessary and also to develop treatment plans that allow patients to spread their dental work out over time. We try hard to prioritize treatment so patients can plan accordingly. We also try to help patients maximize their dental insurance and health savings accounts or personal savings. However, for those times when dental bills start to add up, we have tailored a number of options to help create flexibility for patients. We offer a four month, no interest in-house payment plan. If you find that you need more flexibility and lower payments, we also partner with Care Credit. This is an excellent third-party financing option that provides patients with extended payment plans at zero or low interest rates. Applying for Care Credit is simple and our staff will help to see that you are approved, if necessary.
MAKING DENTISTRY EXCELLENT
Dr. Peterson recognizes the value of lifelong learning and has dedicated himself to staying on the cutting edge of dentistry and continuing to grow professionally. Toward that end, he was integrally involved in the development of two study groups that he continues to participate in today. Dr. Peterson is a charter member of Boise chapter of the Seattle Study Club and a founding member of the Team ACT Study Club. Both of these groups bring together general dentists, specialists, laboratory technicians and experts in dentistry from around the country to meet once a month and discuss dentistry. Through these organizations, Dr. Peterson is also able to present cases from his office for consultation by a group of some of Idaho’s finest specialist and dentists. If you have a complicated case, this allows Dr. Peterson to consult with a team of people to provide the best treatment possible for you.
MAKING DENTISTRY COMPASSIONATE
In addition to years spent delivering dental care, Dr. Peterson has spent quite a lot of time in the dental chair himself as a patient. He understands the anxiety that often accompanies a trip to the dentist and he and his staff are dedicated to easing that stress and making your experience comfortable. This is especially important when working on children. Through experience, gaining trust and sometimes the help of a little nitrous oxide, we take great pride in being able to treat children without creating undue fear or anxiety. We often say that children are our favorite patients! Dr. Peterson also believes in the traditional model of health care delivery and views each patient as a unique human being, worthy of compassion and respect… never to be treated as means to an end. We are committed to delivering excellent care, acting truthfully and without deception, building long-term and trusting relationships and delivering high quality dental care, reasonable and appropriate for each individual. Our team is honored to be entrusted with your dental care and will work hard to maintain your trust and confidence.
