At Proud Smiles in Sandy Springs, Dr. Brenda Paulen and her staff work with you as a partner to develop a personalized plan to achieve your oral and dental health goals while incorporating a strong focus on your overall health. Our “Dental Fitness” program tracks your progress as you maintain or restore your dental health, keeping you informed on the benefits of good oral hygiene.
We have developed long-term relationships with hundreds of patients because of our focus on providing comprehensive, comfortable, and affordable dental care. At Proud Smiles we accept all major dental insurance plans as an “out-of-network” provider and we will accept assignment of benefit and electronically submit any treatment claims to your insurance company as a courtesy to you. When possible, we try to estimate your expected insurance benefit for each procedure planned. Remember that these are just estimates to the best of our ability. If you receive any request for information from your insurance to process the claim, please respond promptly so they can expedite this processing in a timely manner. If you ever have any questions about your claim or the information that they request, please feel free to call us and we will be happy to help you in any way we can.
Creating A Positive Dental Experience
Our Sandy Springs dentist office is newly remodeled with plenty of space to help you feel more comfortable and relaxed. Your first visit will be a comprehensive consultation and examination with Dr. Paulen. We set aside an hour and a half for you to get to know the dentist and explain your dental concerns. Dr. Paulen welcomes patients who have been avoiding the dentist due to dental anxiety or financial concerns and will work with them to ensure that they are comfortable with both their treatment plan and associated costs.
Payment and Insurance
We believe there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution in dentistry. Dr. Paulen will present you with various options to achieve your dental goals and help you choose which treatment is best for your needs and budget. Payment arrangements can be made prior to your treatment and a discount may apply for prepayment of complete dental plans.
Proud Smiles accepts cash, check and major credit cards. We accept most dental insurance and as a courtesy will accept assignment of your claim and file on your behalf during your visit. We also offer third party financing through Care Credit & Lending Tree for qualified patients.
