Frequently Asked Questions
1. What days are you open? We are open Monday through Thursday 8 to 5 and Friday 8 to 12.
2.Do you take emergencies? Emergencies are seen the same day. Patients are free to call and we will work them into the schedule or they can come in without an appointment Monday through Thursday 8 to 12 and Friday 8 to 10. For after hours, Dr. Mautner can be reached by a voice mail service.
3. What is the new patient process? Unless they have a specific problem such as a toothache or broken tooth or denture, new patients are first seen for a complete exam which includes a full set of x-rays and then if the condition of their mouth is healthy are scheduled for a cleaning.We normally verify insurance before the initial appointment also.
4.How much do you charge for a deep cleaning? This is a very common question, as many patients are told they have "gum disease" and require a deep cleaning to treat it. Actually the dental term for this procedure is root planing/ curretage and this requires local anesthetic and either the dentist or hygienist going below the gumline and removing all of the plaque and calculus present. Dr. Mautner charges $480 for this procedure on his in-house dental plan. However, he has found that this is commonly overprescribed, so before this question is answered an exam with x-rays is required.
5. What type of anesthesia is used? Dr. Mautner uses a very strong local anesthetic, 4% Septocaine with 1:100,000 epinephrine or 3% Mepivacaine for those who can't be administered epinephrine. For the vast majority of patients this enables the procedures to be done painlessly.
6.Do you see children? Dr. Mautner sees children starting at age 5. If they are uncooperative or require complex treatment they are referred to a pedodontist (children's dentist).
7.How is payment handled? Payment is required at the day of treatment, by cash , check or any credit or debit card. For those with insurance, we accept assignment for the balance after the patient's copayment (if any) or deductible.

Love this place. Can't go wrong. Very friendly and caring. Referred friends and family.
I was referred to Dr Mautner by my brother. I needed a filling and to re-cement my crown that I had for years but fell out (from another dentist) My wait for my 9am appt was minimum. My brother came with me. The In-house insurance is $150 you get free full exam w/X-ray & cleaning with ins plus all services are majorly discounted my re-cement $60 and he had to correct the bite, my filling was $85. They allowed me to be on my brothers plan for$100 instead of $150. The staff was super sweet. Now for Dr Mautner, he was extremely knowledgeable and cordial. After he was done with me which took abt 30 minutes & was totally pain-free, he even saw my brother (who didn't even have an appt). Overall I highly recommend Dr Mautner you won't be disappointed
Location is a bit far for me but its a small price to pay for the service I get. Dentist and his staff are awesome pricing is excellent!
Although not a patient of Dr.Mautner, I know him as a professional colleague and can assure potential and current patients of his outstanding dedication to the profession, his patients, and his insatiable desire for continuing education and excellence. It would be a very difficult task indeed to locate a dentist in the area who could compare. I highly recommend him and his practice without reservation to anyone in the area.
Good... No, GREAT dentist but get ready to wait. I Always wait at least 20 mins however this guy knows his stuff from and my whole family and I have been patients for over 20 years. Also, th
