I would like to say this is by far the best DENTAL OFFICE I'VE EVER BEEN TO. Starting from when i walked in the door the front desk customer service was SUPERB, i was greeted by Trece she was such a sweetheart she made me feel at ease and like i had nothing to worry about (mind you I'm MORE than Terrified of the Dentist) not only from the front desk but the dental Assistant were welcoming as well... Then the Doctor, from the time i sat down in the chair she came in introduced herself to me with a nice warm and welcoming smile, she was very informational about everything that i needed to know about, she made me feel at ease about the WHOLE process and to that i SALUTE this office. EVERY SINGLE person that i encountered that worked there was nothing but a joy to be around. TRUST i will be coming back and REFERRING all of my friends and family. THANKS SO MUCH SMILE CONNECTIONS YOUR AWESOME

Thank You Dr. Harris and all the wonderful staff at Arch Dental. I have had the pleasure of spending many hours and visits to the office. Everyone there is kind, courteous and pleasant to be around. They make the experience of getting dental care special. Dr. Harris is knowledgeable, has the latest and greatest equipment and makes you feel like you are the only one he is spending time with. He is thorough and dedicated to making his patients feel at ease. Tonya is truly creative when it comes to making computer crowns. She is patient and friendly and a great addition to the Arch Dental Team. All support staff and assistants are special and make the experience at Arch Dental great. I recommend this dentist to everyone.

Doctor Michael Harris is fantastic, gifted, kind and caring. His staff of beautiful sweet young ladies do a fine job too. Everyone that works there are also good strong animal advocates. Caring about wild birds which they invest many pounds a day of seed feeding them, for the patients to enjoy through large glass windows!Recommendation without reservation heartily. Dental duties performed with skill and gentleness.

Dr. Robinson is very knowledgeable in regards to her craft. The best treatment at a reasonable price. I have been a patient for over 25 yrs. I would of given 5 stars. However, the hygienist said things that were inappropriate regarding my treatment. Which had given me some anxiety. Dr. Robinson resolved the conflict and I followed through with my treatment. Lets, not let one bad apple spoil the whole bunch.

Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
