Our results speak for themselves.

In some cases, our smiles have lasted far longer than I had even imagined!!!
For New Patients
Once our initial examination is completed, we will discuss all options and decide upon a proposed treatment plan. We can discuss the pros and cons of each choice from a dental standpoint, but ultimately it is up to you to see what fits you best financially. I will always do my best for you no matter what treatment option you choose.
Before treatment begins, Gerri, our office manager will go over the fees and the different payment options. She will arrange a payment schedule based on your particular needs. She will offer payment programs you can choose between ….. a no-interest payment option or an extended payment plan with a low-interest rate. If you would like to review these financial arrangement options with one of our team members in advance of treatment, please call 215 794 3224.
We usually ask that you pay for services on the day they are performed (we do accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.) This is especially true for routine cleanings and preventive procedures and those for which insurance only pays a portion of the procedure fee.
Our goal is to maximize your insurance benefits and make any remaining balance easily affordable. At our office, we electronically submit your claim forms for you. Pre-authorization for major work will inform us of the amount of your obligation before treatment begins, thus helping to avoid unexpected surprises. Once we have received your pre-authorization you will be informed of your financial responsibility. Your portion will be due at the time of treatment.
We will be happy to discuss our different payment options which include 3-month payment plans and 11-month payment plans. While we make every effort to ensure that most of your care will be covered under your plan, there may be circumstances where the best course of treatment will not be covered by insurance or may exceed yearly plan limits.
For patients requiring major work, we offer a 5% fee courtesy when the payment is made by check or in cash before treatment begins. All senior citizens may receive a 10% fee courtesy when they pay by check or in cash at the time of service.
Gerri, our office manager has worked in dentistry for more than 25 years and will make your trip to our office more enjoyable. Scheduling appointments, financial arrangements, and insurance claims management keep Gerri busy and the office running on time.
Lynn, our Dental Assistant - Lynn has us all beat in years at the job.... over 30! With all that experience, she and I will produce terrific treatment outcomes with great confidence. It is so important that an assistant be a mind reader during a surgery, anticipating my every move, allowing me to concentrate. As we go through our day, she allows me to reach for and attain great quality outcomes that will last many years for my patients.
Licensed Dental Hygienists
Our mission is to have you saying, “ that was the best dental cleaning I’ve never had! ” …. and we are very happy to have on our team, two fantastic, talented women who are gentle and thorough and will make that happen. They perform comfortable, preventive care including teeth cleanings, fluoride treatments, x-rays, non-surgical (deep scaling) gum treatments, hygiene instruction and tooth whitening procedures. They can place antimicrobials to combat periodontal disease, minimizing your need for more comprehensive periodontal care. Here’s a bit of news…. Now our hygienists can deliver novocaine for more comfortable scalings.

February 2012 - Another Trip to Kenya to work at our Dental Clinic
In 2008, Dr. Leventhal helped build the Andersen Dental Clinic inside the Medical Center in western Kenya. Now, 8+ years later, I still love doing and teaching dentistry there. The clinic operates all year round, most of the emergencies and toothaches are resolved during "regular business hours." Lots of dental prevention is being carried out on the school-age children. This year, I was asked to do more cosmetic work. It seems that the Kenyans are quite hopeful to have great looking smiles.
