Family Dentistry

Your confident smile is our goal.  To get it you’ll need healthy teeth and healthy gums, and you’ll need a dentist with cosmetic dentistry expertise – to get the shape, position, and color of your teeth just right for you.  Whether you need porcelain veneers or a full-mouth restoration, Dr. Forbes and the team at Capital Dental Design in Richmond can help you every step of the way.

Family Dentistry in Richmond, VA

At Capital Dental Design in Richmond, one of the main things our patients love about us is that we are a patient-centered practice. We treat our patients like family, which means we take the time to understand who you are, your medical and oral health history, and your oral health goals, because doing so allows us to do everything we can to help you and your family reach those goals.

We also emphasize the importance of preventative dentistry, which is why we proudly offer three kinds of dental exams, including a limited exam (for specific concerns), comprehensive exams (thorough examination of your overall oral health so that we can offer recommendations), and a signature exam, which includes the comprehensive exam, as well as a full head and neck exam and photography to offer ideas for a Digital Smile Design.

To learn more about our family dentistry care, please refer to the following, or schedule an appointment today. We proudly serve families throughout Richmond and the surrounding area, including neighborhoods like Southampton, Stratford Hills, Westover Hills, Bon Air, Libbie and Grove, Church Hill, The Fan, Westham, Museum District, and Mooreland Farms.

At Capital Dental Design, we are committed to providing you and your family with effective, considerate care!

Your smile is a reflection of your personality. Call capital dental design Today.


Regular Exams

At Capital Dental Design in Richmond, we make every effort to keep routine exams and cleanings stress free for our patients. Our exams are thorough, and we pride ourselves in administering deep and gentle cleanings using Cavitron and Prophy-Jet sonic instruments. Our highly trained hygienists will not only work their magic, they are also happy to talk with you about any dental concerns you may have. We believe in taking the time to discuss oral health for the best care now, and as a preventative measure. As a general guideline, we recommend you and your family schedule teeth cleanings every 6 months, unless there is a history of dental issues, in which case we might recommend more frequent appointments every 3-4 months. We are flexible and happy to work out a hygiene schedule for your family’s specific needs.

Cosmetic Dentistry and Smile Design

A bright smile can influence your life in so many ways. For example, it can increase your self-esteem and confidence, which can even impact your career and relationships.  A smile you feel confident about can help you feel more at ease, not only with yourself, but with friends and strangers, too.  At Capital Dental Design we believe in optimal oral health and the power of your smile. To help you achieve your cosmetic goals, we offer the following cosmetic dental services:

  • Cosmetic Tooth Restorations
  • Porcelain Dental Crowns
  • Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Invisalign (a braces alternative)
  • In-Office Tooth Whitening
  • Cosmetic Dentures

One unique service we provide our clients is Digital Smile Design. With this technology, a dentist like Dr. Forbes becomes an architect of the smile, and a new level of precision is now able to be achieved. Due to the amount of dedication and skill it takes to become certified, in addition to the cost of becoming certified and purchasing the equipment needed, very few dentists around the country offer smile design, and we are the only clinic in the Richmond area to offer this service.

Cost of Family Dentistry

Several factors will determine the cost of treatment, the biggest being what procedures are performed. Additional costs may be incurred if dental sedation is necessary and whether the procedure is covered (and if so, how much) by your dental insurance plan. Prior to scheduling any procedure, we will discuss the anticipated costs, verify your benefits (if applicable) to determine out-of-pocket costs, and answer any questions you may have about billing.

If you are not covered under a dental insurance plan, or if you are simply interested in saving money, consider joining the Capital Dental Design Membership Plan. Although we make every effort to keep our services affordable for all patients, joining our membership plan allows us to save you even more money by covering the cost of preventive care such as cleanings, exams, and routine x-rays. We also offer discounts of 10-15% on other dental services offered at our clinic. To learn more about our membership plan, payment options, or anticipated costs, contact our office today!

Our care plans are customized for you and include generous preventive care at no additional cost to you.  (Again, all the preventive care is one reason our membership plan is especially affordable in the long run.)
