Exceptional Care for Our Extraordinary Community

Having grown up watching my father provide quality dentistry rooted in building connections with neighbors, friends, and fellow Atlantans, I was inspired to become a second-generation dentist. Now, over 40 years later, I hope to continue his legacy and welcome you into our dental family!

Meet Our Dentists

Beginning with my initial inquiry, Vason Family Dentistry has been courteous, professional, and kind. From Joan at the front desk to Dr. Vason himself, I was given the time and care that made me feel valued as a patient. I was recommended the practice by a colleague who is a longtime patient of theirs, and have since passed along that recommendation to others in search of a new dental practice.

Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

Do you want to learn more – whether it’s about the cost or what to do in a dental emergency? Good news: you’re in the right place! We’ve responded to FAQs right here so you don’t even have to pick up the phone to find the answers you’re looking for. Of course, if you want additional information or would simply prefer to speak directly with our team, you’re always welcome to call us too.

What level of education is required to be a dentist?

As you may have guessed, the road to being a dentist requires several years of schooling. First, the aspiring dentist needs to earn their undergraduate degree, which is usually in a major that’s heavy in math and science, like biology. From there, they need to apply to one of only 67 accredited dental schools in the U.S. Once they are accepted, they undergo three years of both classroom and hands-on training to earn their Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS). Then, they must complete continuing education each year to maintain their license.

What do you do if you can't afford a dentist?

It’s very common for patients to have concerns about the cost of their care. For that reason, we offer multiple financial solutions! The first is dental insurance. So, if you’re insured, don’t hesitate to provide us with your card. From there, we can help you better understand your benefits and how they relate to the treatment you need. If you don’t have dental insurance, don’t worry – we also welcome flexible financing with CareCredit. That way, you can pay for the cost in manageable monthly chunks instead of all at once.

How do I get emergency dental care?

Although dental emergencies are rarely exactly the same, they are almost always stressful and inconvenient. To get the care you need ASAP, you need to first determine if you should call our office or head to the ER. If you are having trouble breathing or are experiencing any other potentially life-threatening symptoms, then you should go to the ER. If you aren’t, then you should get in touch with us to explain your situation and schedule an appointment.

How much does a dental checkup & cleaning cost in Buckhead, Atlanta?

Since dental checkups and cleanings are “routine,” you might assume that there is a flat fee. In reality, there are several factors that influence the price, starting with whether or not you’re insured. If you are, then it’s very likely that your provider will cover the entire cost, meaning you won’t have to pay anything out-of-pocket. With all of that said, there is an average price range in the U.S.: $200 to $350.

How can I make a same-day appointment with a dentist?

If you need to make an appointment right away, the best thing to do is call. After all, it’s the most immediate way for us to get the information we need to determine the earliest we can see you. If you can’t get to the phone, we also have a contact page on our website that you can use. We do our best to respond within 24 hours, but there’s a chance that we will get back to you much sooner.
