If you’re searching for a family dentist in Decatur, AL, make sure you choose a dentist you can trust to give you and your family the care you need. For more than 25 years, Dr. Betts has helped hundreds of families in the community gain healthy, happy smiles. With our state-of-the-art technology, comfortable office, and our strong patient-focused care, you can feel confident trusting your family’s smiles to Dr. Betts.
The majority of our new patients are referrals from existing patients. I think that speaks volumes right there. When they come to our office, their business is handled efficiently. We are gentle with their treatment as much as we can be. We have a pleasant environment. We have lots of comments about the fact that people feel like they can trust our staff and trust us as a practice as far as the atmosphere of gentleness and caring. Recently had a patient come in who said it was the first time she had been to an office and not had a panic attack. I think all of these things help you understand the atmosphere that we're trying to build: a pleasant, calm, caring atmosphere.
Dr. Betts believes that one way of providing the best care for you and your family is through implementing the latest dental technology. The addition of digital X-rays and Spectra imaging and photos have greatly improved our ability to identify and diagnose your problems quickly and effectively. This new technology has made our office more efficient and allows us to communicate more effectively with you and your family.
We also use text and email to contact our patients. This is much more efficient than simply calling you on the phone, though we do still use that method as well. The Internet has made managing your insurance issues much easier and quicker. It has also given us the ability to send your images to specialists immediately.
We try to keep up to date with our technology. We have a digital X-ray system. We have a cavity detection system called Spectra which is a fluorescence technology which helps us detect early decay even before an X-ray can. All of these things help us to be proactive with patient care and just provide the latest.
Our new phone system helps Dr. Betts stay available to his patients, even after hours. He is even able to access your patient data and schedule directly from his phone. The goal of this technology is to help us serve you better whenever you need us.
Your comfort as a patient of Charles F. Betts, Jr., D.M.D. Family Dentistry is our top priority. We will make sure that we allow for plenty of time to meet your needs. We know that some people are anxious about going to the dentist, so we schedule at least an hour for anyone with dental anxiety issues. We also have nitrous oxide available to help calm your nerves and make you more comfortable. Our goal is to make you feel like you are the only patient of the day.
Taking care of you and your dental health is why we love doing what we do. With this in mind, we have weekly staff meetings and participate in continuing education opportunities outside the office to ensure that we stay up-to-date on the latest in modern dentistry.
We also want to make sure that you can get the care you need, and being an unrestricted dental provider for dental insurance providers lets us do just that. We also have options available for patients who don’t have insurance, like our Dental Savings Plan. Visit our payment options page for more information.
