Proud Smiles offers general dentistry services for everything from preventive care to periodontal care, tooth replacement and TMJ therapy. Dr. Paulen considers herself a partner in her patient’s overall healthcare and emphasizes the importance of routine dental care in preventing common dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Maintaining a healthy smile has been proven beneficial for both overall good health and quality of life.
Your First Visit
In our Sandy Springs dentist office, we believe that the best dentistry is a collaborative process between the dentist and patient. Dr. Paulen sets aside time for each patient to discuss their goals and concerns, carefully check for underlying problems and explain the various treatment options that are available.
Our new patient exams typically include a professional dental cleaning along with:
- Digital dental x-rays
- Intra and extra oral digital photographs
- Examination for gum disease, tooth decay and oral cancer
- Orthodontic evaluation and bite function
- Occlusal analysis and examination of temporomandibular joints (TMJ)
Sedation Dentistry Sandy Springs
Dr. Paulen offers sedation dentistry options for patients who prefer to be completely relaxed during their treatment:
- Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas): an inhalation sedation, nitrous oxide provides “conscious sedation”
- NuCalm: Dr. Paulen offers this revolutionary technology that naturally relaxes the mind and body without drugs!
Payment & Dental Insurance Information
Dentistry is often something people sacrifice because they think they can’t afford it. Proud Smiles offers a wide range of payment options including phased treatment schedules to help you get the dentistry you want in a budget you are comfortable with. We work with most dental insurance companies as an “out of network provider”, helping you maximize your dental insurance benefits without sacrificing your quality of care. Our staff will assist with all billing and paperwork. We also offer third party financing through Care Credit.
