When choosing a dentist for you and your family, what are the most important things to look for?
Is it convenient hours? The variety of services offered? Experience? While each patient’s criteria is slightly different, these are just a few factors that our patients say played a crucial role in selecting us as their dental office of choice.
So we thought, why not put together a comprehensive list of the most important factors to consider when selecting a dentist?
In this article, we’re going to cover 9 specific reasons that Bragg Dental should be on your “short list” when considering a new dentist for you and your family in the Cumming, GA area.
1: Two Passionate, Caring Dentists with over 30+ Years of Combined Experience
In fact, when Dr. Bragg was asked what she loves about dentistry and her practice the most, here’s what she had to say:
“I love helping people, whether it is alleviating their pain, creating the smile they always wanted, or hearing a child say they love to come see the dentist. Most recently, we had a patient say we cured them of being scared to go to the dentist!
I also love the relationships we have with our patients— getting to know them and their families and friends, and taking care of their dental health needs.”

Dr. Moody also has an undeniable passion when it comes to helping patients. One thing she’s very eager about is educating patients of the fact that dentistry has changed drastically in the last 20 years, and there’s no longer any reason to be afraid of coming to the dentist.
Dr. Moody states, “So many advances have been made in dentistry – from the delivery of anesthetic to our equipment and materials – dental procedures have become much more comfortable and are done in a shorter amount of time. We are also sensitive to patients’ fears, and can tailor appointments to meet your needs, whether it is with ‘laughing gas’ or headphones to block out the noise.”
In addition to caring deeply about the dental health and well-being of each and every patient, Dr. Bragg and Dr. Moody also have the experience necessary to solve problems and successfully perform a wide variety of dental procedures.

They have been practicing dentistry since 1997 and 1998 respectively, giving them over 30 years of combined experience working with patients on a daily basis.
Whether you are in need of a dental cleaning and oral exam, cosmetic procedure, or even a complex restoration case, Drs. Bragg and Moody, along with their wonderful team, have the skills and experience required to work with you hand in hand to achieve your desired results.
2: Glowing Reviews from Our Patients
It’s one thing for us to tell you how great our practice is, but the real litmus test comes when you take a look at what our patients are saying about us.
After all, without testimonials from real patients, how do you know if you can trust us? Our patients call us helpful, professional, life changing, and more. In fact, here are a couple of testimonials:
“I’ve used this practice for years and refused to change, even when my employer tried to get me to use a DMO instead. They are gentle and thorough. I’ve had quite a few procedures, and each time, have been treated with great care.” Traci
“I’ve been going to Bragg Dental for 10 years, and, as someone who has been in the dentist chair many, many times over a 70+ year lifespan, I have never experienced the degree of professionalism, competence, and service I find there.” Darryl

3: Complete Transparency with a Focus on Patient Education
We’ve built great relationships with our patients based first and foremost on one factor: TRUST. Without trust in any relationship, nothing else really matters.
Our entire dental team is dedicated to helping patients solve their issues by being a thought leader in the dental space, as well as being completely transparent with patients on the problems they are experiencing and the solutions we suggest.
In other words, when you come see us at Bragg Dental with a problem, we’re going to take the time to discuss all of your options with you. You won’t be up-sold on a costly procedure you may not need if a lower cost procedure can provide you with the results you are looking for.
We’re in the business of improving smiles and having our patients recommend us to others because we are helpful, patient, caring, experienced, and trustworthy. Simply put, making an extra dollar never gets in the way of doing the right thing, and that’s the philosophy of every dentist, hygienist, assistant, and team member at our office.

5: A Variety of Services (Dental Cleanings to Full Cosmetic Restorations)
Let’s say you or a family member need a dental cleaning, a tooth bonded, maybe Invisalign® treatment, and also a dental implant. Those are all very different procedures, and a lot of dental practices refer that work out to others.
Not us. We’re a complete dental practice providing a variety of dental procedures all under one roof. On the page below, you’ll find a list of services we provide:
In addition to the obvious benefit of only having to visit one dental practice for all your needs, it also gives us the ability to treat you better because we have a thorough and complete understanding of other procedures you’ve had done.

The answer is obvious. That’s what you’ll have when you choose Bragg Dental as your Cumming dental practice of choice.
6: Cutting-Edge Dental Technology for Early Detection & Advanced Treatment
Dental technology has grown leaps and bounds over the last few years, and at Bragg Dental, we believe that investing in the latest dental technology and learning how to use it appropriately will lead to better treatments for our patients.
Our #1 goal is to provide the highest quality dental care in a family-based, high-technology practice.
To highlight this point, we use a variety of dental technologies, including advanced digital imaging tools, such as digital x-rays (which emit less radiation than traditional x-rays), intraoral cameras, 3M Comfort Control Anesthesia, dental implant systems, and more.

7: We Take the Hassle Out of Working with Insurance Companies
Understanding your insurance coverage and dealing with insurance companies can be quite the hassle, as you’ve likely experienced at some point in your life. At Bragg Dental, we do not want insurance to get in the way of receiving the quality dental care you need.
In fact, we accept many traditional insurance plans, and will even research your coverage to see what treatments are covered under your current plan. For more information, visit our Patient Information page.
As a bonus to our patients, we even have our patient and insurance coordinator, Lindsay, ready to help patients with all of their insurance and billing needs. So, if insurance is stopping you from visiting the dentist, don’t let it— we are here to help!

Our dental practice is fun for kids, adults, and our team members alike.
While it’s important to conduct ourselves in a professional manner, it’s also important that our patients understand that going to the dentist doesn’t have to be a boring, unpleasant experience.
At our office you’ll find coffee, bottled water, television, and even noise canceling headphones that you can wear during your procedure, all to make you feel comfortable and at ease.
While having a dental team with experience and knowledge is very important, it’s also important that you know you can relax and be part of a fun, friendly, comfortable environment from the moment you walk through the door.
