About Our Office

About Our Boynton Beach Dental Office

Not Your Typical Dental Practice

If you are really tired of the tradition of spending long periods in waiting rooms, little time with the doctor, and impersonal care, Palm Beach Smiles may be the perfect dental office for new patients.

When you arrive in our reception area, you’ll be greeted by Jo-Ann, who knows your name. You won’t find a closed window with a placard telling you to sign in on the clipboard in front of you. New patients will notice everyone on our team is happy to see you. We don’t hide from our guests. You’ll immediately notice the atmosphere is relaxing. From the soft lighting and soothing colors to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and spa-like ambiance, you know this isn’t “your typical dental office.” Welcome to your new dental home.


Our patients choose us because of who we are and what we do, not because an HMO forced them to choose a doctor from a list. Our patients value private “VIP” care rather than being told where they can or can’t go for care by an overbearing insurance company and getting the “bum’s rush.” If your appointment is at 1.30 pm, you will be seen at 1.30 pm.

While we do work with traditional insurance, we are not a contracted provider for any managed care (HMO) plans. Consequently, we don’t have to run our office like a bus station. You won’t find our reception area crowded. It’s not because we’re not “busy.” It’s because we have chosen to work for you and only you during your visit. We don’t “double-book.”

We accept MasterCard, VISA, American Express, and Discover!

We make every effort to keep dental care affordable while maintaining the high level of quality to which we have dedicated ourselves. It should be noted that dental insurance is designed to defray some of the costs of dental care by paying a portion or percentage of the bill. We coordinate insurance with treatment, whenever possible, and help our patients maximize any insurance benefits they have. Our philosophy of treating you using only our professional judgment and experience is not compatible with the restrictive nature of managed care plans (HMOs). Accordingly, our office is not a contracted provider with HMO or DHMO plans.

  • Traditional benefit (“indemnity”) plans do not stipulate where you can go. You can see any dentist (including us!) and receive the full benefits of the policy.
  • If your benefit plan is a PPO, you will still be able to use it in our private office; however, your benefits may be slightly less than if you went to a dentist on their restricted list (in-network) of contracted providers.
  • If your plan is an HMO/DMO, you will receive benefits only if you see a dentist on their very restrictive list (in-network) of contracted providers. Naturally, it will be our pleasure to serve you; however, your HMO plan will not cover any of your costs at our office.

Our commitment is to serve you, our patient. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at any time.
