Your Visit

It won’t take long to notice that we do things a little differently at Polished Dental. First and foremost, we get to know you and give you a warm welcome into our family of patients. Good oral health is a team effort, so we prioritize our relationships with our patients and treat everyone as an individual. Second, we respect your time and do everything we can to seat you at your reserved appointment time. We know that it’s hard enough to fit dental visits into your schedule, and we want to help you get the treatment you need and get you back on track with your busy day.

Finally, and most importantly, we’ve made it our policy to treat one patient at a time and never overbook. Accurate diagnoses and thorough, comprehensive care require an attention to detail that can only be achieved by focusing on you — and only you! — during your appointment. We also value this time because it gives you a chance to have a candid, one-on-one consultation with our team about your needs, goals and expectations.

Patient Forms

At our Pittsburgh dental practice, we are always welcoming new patients and look forward to caring for you and your family’s smiles. To make your visit convenient, we invite you to download, print out, and complete your new patient forms to expedite the paperwork at your first visit.


We take pride in helping our patients finance the quality dental care that they deserve. Our goal at Polished Dental is to make dental health a financial possibility for all of our patients, regardless of age, income, and dental needs. You should never have to sacrifice a healthy and attractive smile because of concerns about the cost of dental treatment. We offer fair, affordable fees and a variety of convenient payment options that fit every budget.

Flexible Payment Plans

We gladly accept payment plans through CareCredit℠, which lets you finance 100% of your dental treatment with no upfront costs, annual fees, or pre-payment penalties. With a full range of payment plans, you’re sure to find one that works well for you and your family. Our team is highly trained to help create an individualized financial plan that is right for you.

Dental Insurance

Our friendly and knowledgeable front desk team is happy to help you understand your dental insurance benefits. We are in-network with a number of insurance plans and will file and track all of your claims to ensure you’re making the most of your dental insurance. Call Polished Dental today for a current list of providers.


How long will my first visit take?

We reserve at least 60 minutes for all of our new patient visits, so that our doctors and our team have plenty of time to get to know you. This first visit is also your chance to get to know us, too, and tell us a little about your dental history and any concerns that brought you to our office.

Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely! We offer a variety of financing options, including payment plans through CareCredit. Visit our Financial page to learn more.

What should I do if I’m having a dental emergency?

We’ve all been there: you broke a filling or your child’s chipped his tooth, but your dentist can’t fit you in for two or three days. That won’t happen at Polished Dental, because we know that sometimes you can’t wait even one day to get your smile back. We reserve openings in our daily schedule to accommodate dental emergencies, so you’ll never have to wait in pain, and one of our office is open every day but Sunday. Call our office right away so we can fit you in!

Do you see children?

We love to see kids, and we highly recommend that all children visit a dentist early and regularly. The first visit isn’t too intensive — we’ll just make sure that all of your child’s teeth are erupting properly and address any developmental issues that might be present. Early first visits also give kids a chance to “test drive” the dental chair, which can make dental visits much less intimidating in the future.

reason to smile :)
