Your First Visit

When you call our Boise dental office, you’ll receive a warm welcome from our team, as well as additional instructions on paperwork to fill out and any other necessary pre-visit preparation guidance. When you arrive, we’ll guide you back to our treatment area to collect X-rays, take photos of your smile, and conduct a thorough examination of your mouth.

Dr. Harless will ask you about concerns you may have and show you any issues that we spot via still images captured by our intraoral camera. This comprehensive examination will also include a TMJ and soft tissue screening, bite and orthodontic evaluation, airway and gum exam, and oral cancer screening. We’ll recap our findings with you and provide you with a thorough walkthrough of any of our treatment recommendations. If you’re also booked for a cleaning, our dental hygienist will thoroughly clean, polish, and floss your teeth, leaving your smile feeling refreshed.

Dental Insurance

To help you get the most out of your dental insurance plan, we’re in-network with many major PPO plans. This means that we’ve negotiated discounted rates and fees for patients who choose dentists who are in-network with their insurance. We’ll file claims on your behalf and maximize your benefits, minimizing any out-of-pocket costs and helping you save along the way.

In-House Dental Savings Plan
