Chapel Hill Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is a general dentist office in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Our team is led by Dr. James Furgurson who offers a full range of general dentistry services for children and adults. In addition, we offer advanced cosmetic dentistry and restorative dental treatments.
General dentistry focuses on the routine maintenance of your smile, from dental cleanings to the treatment of gum disease and decay. When you visit with your Chapel Hill dentist regularly, we get to know and understand your unique dental health risk factors so that we can provide the highest standard of personalized care. We take time to educate all patients on how best to maintain a healthy smile between visits and why it is important to maintain their dental health.
Your First Visit
In our Chapel Hill dentist office, we believe that the best dentistry is a collaborative process between the dentist and patient. Dr. Furgurson and Dr. White set aside time for each patient to discuss their goals and concerns, carefully check for underlying problems and explain the various treatment options that are available for their specific needs and goals.
We recommend that parents and caregivers bring children in when the primary teeth begin to erupt. Early visits provide the opportunity for your child to become familiar with our office and staff, as well as the chance for our dentists to evaluate your child’s oral development. If problems are spotted and treated early on in your child’s growth and development, we can often avoid complex concerns down the road.
Our new patient exams typically include a professional dental cleaning along with:
- Digital dental x-rays
- Other diagnostic dental imaging as needed
- Screening for gum disease, tooth decay and oral cancer
- Occlusal analysis and examination of temporomandibular joints (TMJ)
Payment & Dental Insurance Information
Dentistry is often something people sacrifice because they think they can’t afford it. Chapel Hill Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers a wide range of payment options including phased treatment schedules to help you get the dentistry you want in a budget you are comfortable with. We work with most dental insurance companies as an “out of network provider”, helping you maximize your dental insurance benefits without sacrificing your quality of care. Our staff will assist with all billing and paperwork. Most patients with dental insurance only pay a co-pay or deductible towards their treatment.
