  1. Sitting in a Modern Dentistry office right now waiting on my new CEREC crown. The whole process has been very streamlined and I am impressed with this office and its doctors and staff.

  2. I am a patient of your clinic. Have been told on a previous visit that I need a crown.
    First could you tell me specific tooth that needs a crown and with $200.00 discount what would be my total cost. Is it cheaper to to not use my insurance.
    Please let me know at your earliest convenience.
