Harrison Dental Group aims to make it affordable for you to receive the dental care you want and need, so we accept a number of insurance and financing plans, and offer discounts for new patients.
This page will provide you with information about your first visit and links to forms you can fill out in advance to make the most of your time with us.
Your First Visit
A typical first visit includes digital x-rays, which emit a substantially lower amount of radiation than traditional x-rays, an examination by the doctor, and a discussion of treatment options and preventative care. During your examination, Dr. David Harrison or Dr. Keith Harrison will look for evidence of gum disease, tooth decay, oral cancer, and a number of other health issues. We will inform you of any problem spots and discuss treatment with you.

Do I Need to See a Dentist?
Even those who brush their teeth three times a day and floss regularly need to see a dentist at least twice a year to ensure that tartar accumulation is removed and any potential problems are quickly diagnosed. People who are asymptomatic and pain-free may still suffer from gum disease or cavities, and early treatment is much easier and far more cost-effective.
What Does a General Dentist Do?
Harrison Dental Group provides the services of a general dentist. General dentists are trained to treat a wide spectrum of oral health and cosmetic issues, including treatment for cavities, extractions, crowns, dental bridges, dentures, teeth whitening, smile makeover, and gum disease treatments. Drs. David and Keith Harrison have also been trained to provide dental implants and Invisalign® orthodontic treatment.
Should I See a Specialist?
Specialists like periodontists and oral surgeons typically provide a smaller range of highly specialized services. Harrison Dental Group works very closely with specialists in the area and refers patients to them when needed. Unless you have already identified exactly what your dental needs are, it is usually better to see a general dentist first.
Can I Afford to See a Dentist?
Harrison Dental Group aims to make it affordable for you to see a dentist. We accept a number of insurance and financing plans and offer discounts for new patients. Because dental problems only get worse with time, it may be more difficult to afford not going to the dentist. If you are concerned about the affordability of dental care, please contact our office to discuss your insurance and financing options.
