What We Do to Make Dentistry Affordable
If you’ve been avoiding dentistry appointments due to financial concerns, give us the opportunity to provide you with affordable options for treatment.
If you do not have dental insurance, we offer a $29 new patient special, which includes an exam and dental x-rays. This is your starting point. After we conduct a thorough exam, we will let you know if you have any health concerns, such as tooth decay, gum disease, or structural damage. If there are issues, we will provide you with a personalized treatment plan to explain the recommended steps needed to restore your oral health, and the estimated costs and treatment timeline.
We have two patient care coordinators on staff who will sit down with you and help you understand the treatments plan. If you have dental insurance, we will contact your insurer to find out what percent of the costs will be covered and what percent are out-of-pocket. If you are not insured, we will share with you some of the common pathways that people use to pay for dental services. These often include CareCredit, in-office payment plans, and other forms of financing that are preferable to traditional high-interest credit cards. We want to you to have access to the best oral care possible, and you shouldn’t have to bury yourself in a mountain of debt to do it!
Meet Our Doctor
Dr. Carl Futenma was born and raised on the small island of Kauai, in Hawaii. After attending the University of Hawaii, he worked as a teacher before deciding to pursue his dream of becoming a dentist. He joined the Air Force Dental General Dentistry Residency, where he served for three years. In total, he has practiced dentistry for over 20 years and loves to enrich the quality of his dental services with continuing education and acquiring innovative techniques and technology.
In his practice, Dr. Futenma puts the emphasis on patient comfort and positive experiences. He has invested time and energy into mastering techniques that make dentistry more patient-friendly. For example, he uses laser dentistry tools that make gum disease treatments and fillings more comfortable (no drill needed) and provides sedation dentistry options for patients who suffer from dental anxiety. You will find the most up-to-date tools and techniques at Creative Smiles—all at affordable prices.
