Dr. McDaniel leads a team of eight, including five clinical and three office staff, in a high- energy, low-key style, providing over a million dollars a year of dental services, including pediatric and geriatric, to over 5,000 patients from local and surrounding communities. We have a wonderful mix of patients: families, singles, children, youth, seniors and teenagers, from 3 years old to 103 years old. About two-thirds of our patients use traditional dental insurance and one-third do not. We accept all forms of payment except cash and provide a payment plan for qualified patients.
Dental appointments are available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The office is closed Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The front office opens at 11:00am. The first appointment is 12:30pm; the last appointment is 6:30pm. The office closes at 7:30pm. Hygiene appointments for exams, cleanings and x-rays generally run every 45 minutes; restorative appointments for fillings, crowns, bridges, partials and dentures generally run every 30 or 60 minutes on the hour and half-hour. Of course, patients experiencing pain will be scheduled same day or as soon as possible.
