At Westgate Family Dental, your oral health is our highest priority. We don’t use fancy words or technical jargon when discussing your treatment with you. We talk to you like you are family and explain your treatment plan in easy to understand language, and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have before treatment.
Dr. Yarbrough has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years and most of his staff has been with him the entire time. What sets Westgate Family Dental apart from most dental practices is the fact you will see the same faces in our office each time you visit. Our belief in consistency and honesty is what drives our philosophy, treatment, and dental practice. We want to be sure you have the very best options for your specific dental needs.
Not every patient is the same and fits into a neat grid. This is why we treat each patient with personalized care. Our long history with our patients speaks for itself, and if you are a new patient you can look forward to a lifelong relationship with us.
Liz, our insurance coordinator, goes above and beyond to make sure you get the most out of your dental insurance benefits. She goes to bat for our patients and works very hard to get every penny out of your insurance and will fight for your reimbursement if necessary.
You can expect the same care and level of service from Christy and Leslie, our scheduling coordinators. They will work with you to find an appointment time that is convenient for your schedule, not ours. They will also be happy to answer any questions you may have about scheduling and send you a reminder text if you need it about your upcoming appointment. They will also set follow up appointments for you every three, four, or six months so that you can enjoy good dental health through regular appointments.
Dr. Yarbrough’s assistants have been with him collectively for over 30 years and they can help guide you on the treatment path carefully selected by the doctor. They put your needs first and foremost and will do everything they can to make your visit to our practice comforting. We provide headphones and blankets, and are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have. The doctor’s assistants have a complete knowledge of dentistry and will explain your treatments and options to you in easy to understand language, not with technical terms or jargon. Our assistants strive to make your visit comforting, reassuring, and take the stress out of visiting the dentist.
Our hygienists are in a class of their own. They are here to assist you and guide you by educating you on your oral health. Our hygienists are knowledgeable, proficient and incredible dental health providers. They work very hard to make sure your oral health and preventive plan is tailored to you specific needs. Some of our patients require more frequent cleanings such as every three or four months. Most of our patients need a six month cleaning and some need deeper cleanings.
By monitoring, educating, and keeping tabs on your oral health, including hard and soft tissues and periodontal pocket measurements, we can show you your progress or regression. By having a solid preventive oral health plan in place we can help you achieve good oral health without regression. Our hygienist will teach you proper techniques for brushing, flossing, and educate you on the best oral health products. Our provider, Perio Sciences, suggest the best electric toothbrushes and oral health equipment available to help you maintain your oral health.
Because of his GPR training Dr. Yarbrough has the ability to offer a wide array of different procedures. We believe in keeping our patients in house as much as possible instead of shuffling you off to specialist for every special procedure. However there are times where we need to call on our specialists to assist us in certain aspects of our procedures, but these times are few and far between and when these times do arise, we only work the very best specialists in Austin, ones we would trust with our own dentistry.
Dr. Yarbrough is able to offer many different dental procedures in-house. These include the following:
- Implant placement
- Root canal therapy
- Advanced root canal therapy,
- Bone grafts
- Sinus lifts
- Surgical removal of (most) wisdom teeth
- Periodontal surgical procedures
- IV Sedation
- Oral Sedation and much more
By offering more services to our patients we can maintain a level of convenience that some practices cannot. We want to make your dental procedures as comfortable and convenient as possible. We also offer digital x-rays which offer 85 to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. With digital x-rays we can see your x-ray immediately and can diagnose faster. We also offer CEREC same day dental crowns as well. We have an in house CAD Camera that allows us to take virtual digital impression of your tooth and use the impression to fabricate your crown right in our office.
At Westgate Family Dental we treat our patients like family and our number one priority is your comfort level and trust of our services. We want our patients to come into our practice with confidence not fear, and we will do whatever it takes make you happy and comfortable.
