Here at Newman Family Dental, we are very proud of our administrative team. They are your first point of contact when you call or visit our office. Our patients consistently give us feedback as to how comfortable they feel when they call us and arrive for their visit. Pleasant, warm, welcoming and understanding are often the words used to describe our administrative team, but that’s only half the picture.

The front desk team, as well as all of us here at Newman Family Dental, are very conscious of the fact that choosing a dental office for you and your family is a decision you do not take lightly. Our entire team understands the importance of great dental health and how it affects your overall health. In addition to being pleasant, patients tell us how gentle and caring out dentists are. Our team are experts at navigating through the complexities of insurance plans and helping you coordinate any and all appointments you need. We look forward to your call.
