About Our office
From the moment you enter Alpine Smiles Family Dentistry, you will realize you're in the right place. You will love the welcoming and relaxing environment from the natural light, subtle earth-tone colors, and spacious waiting and treatment rooms. Dr. Pasut's priority is to make your dental experience comfortable and pleasant. Upbeat music and the subtle scent of aromatherapy candles add to the ambiance, and patients can enjoy a variety of healthy snacks, water, and coffee before their visits.
Appealing Environment, Friendly Dentist
One of the elements that our patients love most in our relaxing environment is our ceiling-mounted flat-panel televisions with DVD players or personal wireless headphones.
Patients always compliment us on how it makes the appointment so much easier. Rather than listening to the sights and sounds of a dental office, they indulge themselves in one of their favorite movies or peacefully enjoy the music of their choosing. Patients often state that appointments seem to "fly by." Some patients even say that their dental appointment is one of the only times that they get to relax.
Upon entering a treatment room, a patient does not encounter the stark, clinically cold feeling that is found in most dental offices. Instead, each treatment room is brightly lit by a large window. We offer soft chenille blankets, lumbar and neck pillows, and back massager.
As their scheduled procedure is performed, patients are at ease as they watch one of numerous available DVDs or listen to their favorite music. Patients are our guests and every aspect of our their experience is designed around an ultimate goal of comfort but most importantly, Dr. Joedi Pasut's focus is on offering the highest quality of care.
Through the integration of the latest dental technology, years of expertise, and the use of the highest quality dental materials, patients can expect long-term beautiful results. Patients are encouraged to take an active role in discovering their own dental needs. Intra-oral cameras allow patients to see where Dr. Pasut is recommending treatment by magnifying the inside of your mouth 40 times and displaying the image on the ceiling mounted computer monitor. This way you can better understand the procedures you need.
Dental Phobic Patients
During your visit, we want you to be as comfortable as possible. We do everything we can to create a calm and enjoyable ambiance in our office. For our patients that are particularly fearful of dental treatment, a prescribed medication can be taken one hour before the appointment.
Dr. Pasut's goal is to help you obtain optimal oral health. In order for you to receive the necessary dental treatment, we offer a variety of payment solutions to ease any financial concerns.
For your convenience, we offer several payment options, including cash, debit cards, credit cards (e.g., VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express), insurance payments, and financing plans from Care Credit Finance.
We offer a senior citizen discount of 5%.
We will gladly submit your dental claims to your insurance carrier for you. Prior to your appointment, our staff will contact your insurance company and determine their anticipated benefit payment. We will also estimate your anticipated portion for your recommended dental treatment. We also recommend that YOU contact your insurance company to learn what dental benefits are provided to you. It is very beneficial for you to understand how your dental insurance works.
We partner with a great company called Care Credit to help you pay for treatments and procedures your insurance does not cover. There are many plans available, including a "No Interest" option. We will customize an affordable monthly payment plan that will work for you.
The application process is hassle-free. It takes about five minutes to get approval, and treatment can start that same day.
Intraoral cameras are an excellent means of allowing the patient to view potential dental conditions in their own mouth. It is much easier to understand what is happening in your mouth if you can see the problem on a computer monitor. This digital image can be utilized to provide information to insurance and other doctors if necessary.
Digital x-rays are quickly becoming the standard in dental imaging. Not only are they an excellent diagnostic tool, but they decrease radiation to the patient by over 80%.
Digital x-rays allow the doctor to get a much better view of your teeth and potential dental conditions. The digital imaging software allows the doctor to see a number of different views of the tooth to gain a better understanding of the proper course of management. Digital x-rays provide a great benefit to the patient.
Invisalign® can give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. It works through a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign has been proven effective and is widely used.
