Welcome, We are Dedicated to Your Smile

Z dentistry

a safe place for you . . . . and us!

We have added many layers of aerosol control, health screenings, and careful scheduling for everyone's safety. We have two 'air scrubbers' that filter air, zap bacteria and viruses with a UV light and put ionized molecules into the air to catch those bugs as they appear. We use High Volume suction during dental procedures that capture aerosol chairside. You will be screened for health conditions and COVID-19 symptoms before and at the time of your appointment. Early morning appointments are reserved for people who have compromising health conditions. Of course, we are wearing much more Personal Protective Equipment.

We strongly encourage you to submit paperwork through our new Online Forms. These forms are under the 'New Patients' tab. We appreciate your help to create a paper free office. 

We are in the office Monday through Friday to answer your calls, texts and emails. Your questions, concerns or special requests are Welcome.

We look forward to seeing our family of patients. 

Thank you for your patience and for helping stop the spread of the Corona Virus.

"I love Dr. Z. The office is modern and clean. I have never had to wait past my appt time. His staff is efficient and friendly, and he is a really nice man. He is very suited to his profession. I have recommended him to my friends many times." - MN 12/2019

Dr. Z loves teeth! He is a leading Reno dentist who also serves patients from Reno, Sparks and Truckee. You will get a complete exam so that Dr. Z can answer your questions. He will let you know about your options if you do have a problem as well as discuss ways to keep your dental health in tip top shape.

You receive your personalized care beginning with your first call or email to Z dentistry. 

We ask you questions so that we can understand your dental health goals. 

You will be scheduled for the time you need, whether it is for emergency care or a complete dental exam. If you arrive with dental pain, the first goal will be to relieve your pain. If you arrive to become part of our dental family, the first goal will be to get a complete, detailed look at your oral health. We develop lifelong relationships with our patients by getting to know them and by personalizing the dental care they want. We combine a 'no pressure' look at your dental situation with the latest dental technology and a professional, compassionate staff. The result is a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.

Wonderful hygienists round out our professional team. Keeping your teeth clean and your gums healthy are dental services that everyone needs. This is the foundation of good dental health. Jessica and Mona are experts at measuring the health of your gums and at directing you to the best dental care plan for you. They stay informed about all of your dental care needs and preferences. You can be confident of receiving regular cleanings and check-ups that are tailored to you.

The dental assistants complement Dr. Z and the Hygienists. Maria and Rocio will be prepared to serve you during your visits to Dr. Z. They keep all the 'behind the scenes' jobs in our clinical area running at top efficiency from working chairside to maintaining our sterile working environment and managing your dental records. They know dentistry and can answer many of your questions.

In the front office area of Z dentistry you will meet Joan at the Reception Window and Lesly at the Check Out Counter. These two ladies help you schedule your appointments, get your records from other offices, verify your basic insurance benefits, file insurance claims for you and provide financial arrangement options. They are your starting point for a great experience at Z dentistry.

A new feature at Z dentistry is the Smile Saving Membership Plan. You may be interested in the Plan if you do not have dental insurance or if you would like to drop your dental insurance. There are a lot of Pluses to paying the dentist directly for your services and cutting out the Insurance Middle Man. Insurance policies cover what you MAY need and often have a lot of small print describing limitations, exclusions, waiting periods and downgrades.

The Smile Saving Membership has two offerings - the Healthy Smile Saving Plan and the Healthy Gums Saving Plan.

Both plans cover dental cleanings, x-rays, a fluoride treatment, wellness exams, a problem exam. An additional perk is 20% off any additional services you might need. The Healthy Smile Saving Plan is for people who receive 2 cleanings a year. The Healthy Gums Saving Plan is for people who have gum disease and need 4 cleanings a year. We welcome your questions about this alternative to dental insurance.
