Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you. We request a 24-hour notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment. After missing your second appointment without notifying us 24 hours in advance, you are subject to being charged an additional fee.


 Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. After 60 days, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.


Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. For the convenience of our patients, we accept all major credit cards and offer financing through CareCredit to help make your treatment more affordable. We also offer Senior Citizen discounts! Charges are payable at the time of treatment.

Please ask a member of our staff, and we will review our payment options to accommodate your financial needs.

If special arrangements are needed, please talk to our office manager prior to receiving service.

We accept all major insurances and we will submit all insurance claims for you. We will fully attempt to help you receive full insurance benefits; however, you are personally responsible for your account, and we encourage you to contact us if your policy has not paid within 30 days.

  • My family and I would highly recommend Shallowford Family Dental. Dr. Ankar and his staff always treat us well and we value his knowledge as a dentist. They try their best to make what is often a unpleasant experience less uncomfortable and pleasant. Dr Ankar is not only my dentist, he's my friend.

  • A few weeks ago I woke up with a terrible toothache. Shallowford Family Dental was the only office I called that told me I could come in as soon as I could. This was my first cavity ever so I freaked out a little, but the staff was super nice and Dr. Edwards and Mary Taylor did a fantastic job making me feel comfortable. Also due to their skill I was able to avoid getting a root canal!
