Where are you located?
We are located in Luani Plaza, at 1460 Kennedy Dr in Key West.
We are on the corner of Flagler Avenue and Kennedy Drive. Look for the Big White Molar Bike Rack.
What are your office hours?
We are open most weekdays from 8:30 until 4:30. In the event of a dental emergency, please call 293-9876. Established patients may also call Dr Goldner or Dr Jones at home in case of a true emergency. If you are out of town consult our website elsewhere for a list of referral dentists known to Dr Goldner who reciprocate in caring for our patients.
What services do you provide?
We provide most general dental services, with an emphasis on natural-color resin and porcelain restorations and smile enhancement. We provide a good deal of ZOOM Smile Whitening with exciting results. Also available are Preventive Dental Hygiene and non-surgical Periodontal care. We prefer to begin our dental relationship getting to know you, and then providing a comprehensive treatment plan for your review.
We pride ourselves on the early adoption and use of modern, high-tech dental tools and techniques. We use low-radiation digital radiography (x-rays) and a laser tool, the Diagnodent, as well as traditional methods to help make a thorough evaluation and diagnosis of your dental condition. We are able to perform some of our procedures with the Waterlase Dental Laser, often without needles or drills. We often use The Wand when an injection is needed, to provide greater comfort and less post-op numbness. These and other newly developed techniques and materials, coupled with a passion for continuing dental education contribute to our best efforts on your behalf.
We have never used silver/mercury amalgam fillings at Paradise Dental Care.
Dr Goldner generally does few extractions, and fewer complete dentures, but does perform endodontics (root canal therapy) for his patients and on referral for other local dentists. However, Dr Kendall Jones joined our practice in 2011 and provides these services. Both Drs Goldner and Jones provide the restoration of dental implants. The practice refers and works well with local specialists for some specific procedures. Dr Goldner also started offering Short Term Adult Orthodontics in 2010 using the "Six Month Smiles" system, and has helped many adults attain the smiles they have always wanted, just by moving teeth within the smile zone.
We are happy to see children for preventive services as a convenience for our adult patients, but generally refer children to another general dentist or a pediatric dentist for any complex treatment. We strive to establish a healthy and comfortable foundation for children for continued dental health as they mature.
Do you accept my insurance?
We accept a wide variety of insurance plans, virtually any dental plan which allows you freedom of choice in who does your dentistry. Bridget is able to assist you in determining your dental insurance benefits, which are generally dependent on the relative expense of the plan chosen by you and/or your employer.
