We are proud of our office here at Michelle Keaney Flanagan, DMD. Little patients are the heart of our practice, so it makes sense that we would go out of our way to provide comfortable waiting and treatment areas complete with the types of amenities you would expect from a premier dental practice in Arlington. Our office is filled with state of the art diagnostic and dental treatment technology to ensure accuracy and early detection of oral complications for your children. We believe both children and adults deserve only the best, and our staff works hard to deliver a superior experience at every visit.
Insurance and Payment
Our office welcomes many types of dental insurance, and our insurance and payment coordinator will be happy to assist you in determining what type of benefits are available to you through your insurance plan. Payment arrangements for account balances are due at the time services are rendered, so please bring your insurance card with you to your first visit. We accept many forms of payment, including cash, checks, and major credit cards. You can also speak with our office administrator about flexible payment options available for major dental services.
If you have lingering questions concerning the financial aspect of your visit, our office administrators are on-hand during our regular business hours to answer your questions and address your concerns.
A standard of excellence in personalized pediatric dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use preventative dentistry to achieve your child's optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for your child as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your child's teeth and gums and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your child's smile, we’re also concerned about their health. A review of medical history can help us stay informed of your child's overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact their dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your child's smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern pediatric dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you and your child with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
We thank you for allowing us to take care of your child's dental needs and look forward to serving you.
