Business Spotlight: Horizon Dental Group office now open in New River

NEW RIVER – If your teeth could use a little TLC, now’s the time to get a dental checkup and help keep your teeth in good shape. The new Horizon Dental Group office is open in the Riverside Plaza in New River, and they’re offering new patient specials.

Horizon’s specials at the New River office include an exam and x-rays for $19.95, instead of the normal $185. In addition to the discounted price, all profits are donated to charity, according to Dr. Mark Costes, who owns the practice and is working at the New River office. To receive this special, bring in the Foothills Focus ad, mention the ad, or bring in a download or screenshot of the ad.

The new office has been open for about four months, and in that time, they’ve gotten a warm welcome from the community. Services offered at the New River office include general dental care, sedation dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and many types of procedures, including root canals and extractions. The New River office hours are 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Thursday.

This is the tenth Horizon Dental location; the practice includes six Arizona offices and four California offices.

“It’s the type of town we love to be in,” Costes said of New River. Horizon aims to be community-minded and intends to make the New River practice locally-based. They’re also looking to hire local staff members.

Community outreach is very important to Horizon Dental, Costes said. They support multiple charities, and spotlight a charity each month, including Stepping Stones Shelter and Big Brothers Big Sisters. The practices also reach out to local schools. The goal is to donate $25,000 per practice each year, through giving and charitable dentistry.

“We support all local fire charities and police charities,” Costes said.

Horizon Dental offers charitable dentistry for patients who need dental work but can’t afford it. Those who would like to request this service can call or email the office or come in to learn more about it.

Costes said Horizon’s view on patient care centers on the Golden Rule: the staff treats patients as they would want to be treated, caring for them as they would their own family. The comfort and convenience offered has kept patients coming back and referring their friends and families, too.

“We do everything we can to be gentle and compassionate,” Costes said.

Getting involved with the local community is a Horizon priority, and the staff is looking forward to getting to know more local residents.

“We want to do everything we can to support the community,” Costes emphasized.
