Your First Visit Is All About You – Your Comfort, Your Happiness, and Your Health
We understand that you or your child may feel anxious about visiting a dentist. Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our Jersey Shore dental center while providing the best care and dental services. Whatever your dental problem, Valerie Barba, DDS, FAGD can be your solution for a lifetime!
We make visiting a dentist stress-free. During your first visit to our dental office, we will review your dental and medical history forms and take X-rays of your teeth and mouth. Then, Dr. Barba will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have. At your next visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, checking your teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.
The American Dental Association recommends visiting a dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy. We understand that you have a busy schedule. When you’re preparing to visit our dental spa, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.

Your smile is yours forever, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best dental care when you need it. We accept most major credit cards and insurance plans, and our office staff is always available to help you with insurance claims and paperwork. We’ll work with your insurance provider to make sure that your coverage meets your needs and your budget. Please let us know if you have any questions about your insurance coverage.
