The Outstanding Dental Care You’ve Been Waiting For
We are dedicated to your safety, comfort, and convenience during every stage of your treatment. We strictly adhere to all state and federal safety standards, and we go above and beyond those standards by using the latest in dental technology. Our surgical lasers will reduce your risk for contamination, and they also destroy bacteria for more effective care. We also use low-radiation digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. These devices will provide extremely accurate images. We can also share these images on an exam room computer, making you an involved participant in your treatment.
Dental lasers do more than eliminate bacteria. As a leading expert on laser dentistry, Dr. Ragsdale uses these tools to perform a full range of treatments. With soft tissue lasers, she can treat gum disease and perform cosmetic gum recontouring. She is also one of a select number of area dentists who use hard tissue lasers to perform restorative and cosmetic care. With these extremely precise tools, Dr. Ragsdale can preserve more of your tooth structure and provide extremely durable restorations.
Our relaxing office is specially designed to help you feel at ease. Our private treatment rooms have high ceilings, plenty of natural light, and cable TV. In addition, we offer blankets, pillows, aromatherapy, and headphones to make your treatment even more pleasant. Although Dr. Ragsdale is renowned for her gentle techniques, we understand that you may still feel nervous about your treatment. For this reason, we offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation. If you suffer from dental anxiety, or if you are preparing for an extensive procedure, we will help you decide which of these sedation options will most benefit you.
For truly stress-free dental care, your treatment must be affordable. We accept many major insurance plans, and we are always happy to file your claim and answer your questions. Even if you do not have dental insurance, or you are preparing for a non-covered cosmetic treatment, you can still receive the care you desire. We offer a range of financing options, and we will gladly help you find the plan that most suits your needs. CareCreditTM is the number one patient financing program in the country. This program offers a diverse range of repayment plans, including no-interest and extended payment options. There are no upfront costs or fees, and you can add on other treatments at no additional charge. Although CareCreditTM is the most popular option, we also provide other financing plans, such as CapitalOne® | healthcare finance.
As one of Austin’s leading dentists, Dr. Ragsdale strives to provide compassionate, gentle treatment to each of her patients on a daily basis. She is incredibly grateful to each of her patients for their continued support over the years. The success of our practice depends on referrals from our loyal patients.
