Can I be sedated for my appointment?

We do offer “laughing gas” or Nitrous Oxide to help with anxiety during your appointment. Our team has been trained to be very gentle and reassuring to help even the most anxious of patients. We are happy to offer an IPod and headphones, neck rests and the best hand holding out there. There are other options, like medication, that we can discuss if needed and have found that most of our patients have not felt the need for them.

What can I expect during my new patient appointment?

Here, at Gold River Smiles, we like to consider your first visit with us a “New patient experience”. Our goal is to make you feel completely at home and welcomed. We will use this opportunity to get to know you and allow you to get to know us. We will, of course, plan for taking the necessary radiography, performing an oral evaluation and providing an initial cleaning. Our hygienist will help to access the health of your gums and make recommendations for any additional periodontal treatment while Dr. Nima will thoroughly evaluate the overall health of your mouth. You will have the opportunity to discuss treatment options and create a plan that works for you.

What kind of insurance do you accept?

We accept all PPO/Indemnity insurance plans. We are contracted with many dental insurances. We are happy to bill your insurance for you and provide estimates of what your share of cost will be.

How long has the dentist been practicing?

Dr. Nima has been in practice since 2010. He became the owner of Gold River Smiles in June 2015.

Do you offer payment plans?

We understand that sometimes special arrangements need to be made. We try to treat each person as an individual and work with you to achieve your goals of great oral health. Our financial team can discuss with you how we can help you fit your treatment costs into your budget. We work with Care Credit for extended payment plans, if needed.

Do you accept patients with no insurance?

Absolutely. We even offer an in house membership program that will help with savings on treatment. Ask about our membership program!

Do you do braces?

We do Invisalign, known as clear braces. Call us for a no charge consultation to see if you are a candidate.

Do you do implants?

We work with a team of talented surgeons that place the implants, while we do all of the restorations in our office.

Do you do teeth bleaching?

Yes. We will invite you in for impressions of your teeth and fabricate custom whitening trays that you will use with gel to achieve a whiter brighter smile.
