Are you accepting referrals?
Yes, and thank you for your confidence. We appreciate your referrals and promise to extend the same comprehensive, caring service to your friends, family, and coworkers that we give you every time you visit.

What do I do if I have an emergency when the office is closed?

How can I ask my dentist a question directly?
At Valley Ranch Family Dentistry, we encourage open and direct communication with your dentist. Dr. Khambaty is available during office hours to answer questions of patients on record received via e-mail or phone. We strive to respond to all inquiries within 24 hours. To ask a question via phone, please call our mainline at (972) 597 2227 or you can email us at

Do I have to floss every day? Is it really that important?
Yes! Floss loosens food particles, plaque, and tartar trapped between teeth. In addition to irritating gums, causing gum disease, and promoting cavities, these three culprits cause bad breath. If you need help learning how to floss quickly and effectively, we’ll gladly teach you some tricks to make your daily oral care easier.

What are my options to replace missing teeth?
We offer bridgework, partials, full dentures, and dental implants. With digital X-rays, photos from an intraoral camera, and a thorough assessment of your smile, your dentist can help you decide which replacement option is best for you.

How do the doctors keep up to date on current techniques, technology, and materials in dentistry?
We take far more than the state’s requirement for continuing education each year. We also read trade journals, attend professional association meetings, and do everything we can to keep in tune with the latest developments in general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry, as well as dental technology. We’re passionate about our careers, so we enjoy soaking up new information on our profession, then sharing it with you!

How can my smile be improved?
Generally speaking, porcelain veneers, crowns, teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, and replacement teeth are some of the options that can be used to improve your smile. Each persons smile and needs are unique and so a smile makeover plan will be carefully developed based upon your input and needs.

My teeth are stained. Can you help?
Yes. We offer teeth whitening solutions to brighten teeth dramatically at home or in our office.
