Here at Maitland Family Dentistry we like to think that we have seen it all, and for the most part not many things surprise us. That's because we have been open since the summer of 1974, and that puts 37 years of experience serving Maitland, Orlando, and all of Central Florida to work for you. Our experienced and dedicated team will work extremely hard to make your visit and experience with us as positive as possible. Over the years we naturally experience a lot of the same concerns and barriers patients have prior to coming to visit us. We know that going to the dentist doesn't normally excite people, and of course we are human enough to know that what we do isn't always the most fun. We are a dental office after all.
This page of our website is dedicated to those hurdles and barriers that we see. Below we've listed some of the most common questions and concerns we get and our approach to handling them to make them a Positive outcome. Hence the Name "turning negatives into positives".
I think dental treatment costs too much?
Oral health is part of overall health and you will always get great value for your dollar in our practice. We will work very hard to prove to you our value. Regular dental visits are THE most conservative and cost effective treatment.
I'm embarrassed to go to the dentist because it's been so long since my last appointment?
We see ourselves as educators, not lecturers or parents. We will not dwell on the past but look to the future. Once you're here, we only look toward the opportunities ahead, not regrets in the past.
I can't afford dental treatment?
For qualified patients, we have financial options so you can spread out payments at zero percent interest.
Do I have to wait too long?
We respect your time. If your appointment is at 1 PM, you should be seated at 1 PM. If you are not, then we need to let you know why.
I don't like to go to the dentist?
Our goal is to make your visit as comfortable and as pleasant as possible.
I'm afraid that it's going to hurt?
We have a modern practice. We will do everything possible to minimize your discomfort, so you will leave our office smiling. You can also visit our what we do to see exactly what we are doing to make your experience as positive as possible.
