During the course of their lives, three out of four people will suffer from some form of periodontal or gum disease.

In fact, it’s so common that it’s the leading cause of 70% of adult tooth loss. Periodontists can perform a comprehensive examination of your gums and provide treatment to help prevent, reverse, or offset the damaging effects of this disease.

Choose the Way You Want to Pay

At West Valley Family Dental, a point is made to exceed your expectations, not your budget. With quality care at affordable rates, everyone in your family can get the dental care they need and deserve. So when you walk out the door, you’ll leave with a great big smile, not a great big bill.

And while giving you lots of payment choices is important, there’s one choice you should never have to make: deciding between the dental care you need and the dental care you can afford. So the staff at West Valley Family Dental sits down with you to figure out which payment option and plan make sense for you for the dental services you need.

To make things even easier for you, West Valley Family Dental offers plenty of ways to pay, including VISA®, MasterCard®, Discover®, and American Express®.

And West Valley Family Dental now offers an even more convenient way to make payments through Online Bill Pay.
