Common Questions

The Answers You're Searching For

What type of dental treatments do you provide? 

Smile Fitness Dental Centers provides a comprehensive array of general, preventive, cosmetic and restorative care. Learn more about us on our Services page or call for information.

Do you accept new patients and walk-ins?

Yes! We see new patients Monday through Saturday! New patients and emergency walk-ins are always welcome at our Glendale and West Phoenix dental offices.

Do you take insurance? Is financing available?

We accept most PPO insurance plans and offer third-party financing through Citi Health Card. Please review our Insurance and Payment Information page for more details.

Do you see children?

Absolutely! We’re happy to treat patients of all ages. Our dentists recommend you bring your child to our office for a first dental visit around age four, or earlier if you notice problems or have concerns. If your child requires the care of a specialist, we refer to a trusted pediatric dentist.

Will I be told how much my treatment costs?

Yes, before treatment begins you’ll be given cost and insurance estimates prior to starting your treatment. We’ll provide you with alternative options, when available, to help with budget and scheduling issues.

Can I be seen right away if I have an emergency?

Of course! Our dentists treat emergency cases during business hours, the same day you want to be treated. If your emergency occurs after hours, call the Smile Fitness Dental Centers office nearest you for information on how to receive care.

What if I have a dental problem on the weekend or at night?

We offer early, late and Saturday appointments to accommodate our patients’ scheduling needs. A doctor is on call 24/7 for patients of record.

Will I need X-rays?

Your dentist will determine if X-rays are necessary and will only take specific pictures to aid in accurate, efficient diagnoses. With high-speed dental film and modern X-ray equipment, radiation exposure is very low and kept to a minimum.

Can you whiten my teeth?

Absolutely! We offer Zoom! Whitening as well as take-home bleaching kits for stunningly white smiles. Both methods are safe, effective and deliver fantastic results.

What are the advantages of professional teeth whitening compared to over-the-counter products?

Teeth whitening toothpastes only remove surface stains and don’t contact the teeth long enough to be truly effective. Bleaching strips often provide an uneven application of whitening solution and produce a mottled result. Over-the-counter products can also irritate gum tissue. Professional in-office whitening is convenient, it only takes about 90 minutes and the results are great.

Do you offer Anxiety Relief?

Yes. Our dentists understand that many patients experience dental anxiety. We can prescribe a medication to be taken prior to your appointment. We also offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to promote comfort and calm nerves.

Are your dentists experienced?

At Smile Fitness Dental Centers, our talented dentists have many years of experience. You can rely on their skill, education and knowledge to complete your dental work with precision and care. Read our team bios for more information.

Who owns your offices?

Our Peoria and West Phoenix dental offices are locally owned and operated by the doctors who work in them. It’s a team effort and a group practice. We’re not a corporate entity or a clinic that sees you as a number. To us, you’re an individual with unique needs who deserves personalized attention and customized care.
