We strive to make sure that your cost of care is not confusing. In addition to offering a number of payment options to fit your budget, we also give you cost information on your treatment plan ahead of time. We are in-network with a variety of insurance plans. We are happy to help you navigate your dental insurance and out of pocket payment options.

At Tonka Smiles, your comprehensive oral health care starts at your first visit. The initial comprehensive exam is a more detailed exam that allows the doctors the time needed to thoroughly examine your oral health. During your initial exam, our team of dental health professionals will measure Gum pocket depths, take a set of intraoral photos, and any necessary x-ray’s recommended based on your dental history, dental records, and any dental concerns you may have. Our dental professionals will talk with you about all of the findings of your initial exam. We believe that the more educated you are, the better decision you can make for your oral health.


Once we have gathered all of this information the Doctor will sit with you and evaluate your gum health, the stability of existing restorations in your mouth along with screening for oral cancer, looking at the function of your jaw, and check for any head and neck abnormalities. The doctor then puts together a comprehensive treatment plan that best fits your needs.


We respect and understand that many patients experience dental anxiety. At our office, we do everything we can to make sure that your experience is as enjoyable as possible. By communicating clearly what you can expect during your treatment, we are often able to alleviate dental fear. We encourage you to bring headphones and music to listen to during your treatment and ask us about dental sedation options.


At Tonka Smiles you aren’t just a patient. We are dedicated to providing exceptional dental care for every patient who walks through the doors of our practice. We think you’ll find a friend in your dental professional during your visit!

Get the smile you've always wanted!
