Less than a year since its opening, Cobblestone Dental Care has already built a solid reputation for its comprehensive, community-based and caring approach.
“The biggest thing that sets us apart is the overall care our patients get,” says, Alex Wardian, DMD, who brought his expertise and style of dentistry to Gilbert and opened Cobblestone Dental Care in March.
Having obtained a Doctoral of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Washington School of Dentistry, Dr. Wardian has taken advanced courses in root canal therapy, implants and treatment of periodontal disease, and has demonstrated his competency and passion for periodontal surgery and for providing cosmetic treatments, including veneers, crowns, whitening, gum management and bite management. Cobblestone also offers sedation dentistry, pediatric dentistry, extractions, invisible braces and emergency dental services.
“We do refer certain cases,” Dr. Wardian says, “but we keep things here in the office as much as possible. We bring in other specialists—and even dental anesthesiologists—as needed.”
He says patients like the continuity and familiarity that comes with this comprehensive approach. They also like that Cobblestone is “all-in” when it comes to putting their patients first.
“We are very patient-oriented,” says Dr. Wardian. “Caring for our patients comes first, so we always roll out all the options, and then we customize a treatment plan to what the patient wants.”
To assist their patients, Cobblestone also offers an in-house savings plan that, Dr. Wardian says, is “cheaper than out-of-pocket” costs, so is ideal for those who don’t have dental insurance.
He says the Cobblestone Dental Care location, at 1522 S Gilbert Road (northwest corner of Gilbert and Ray), is also a plus, as it is near the Gilbert Town Center and convenient for residents from Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek, Tempe and other areas to have easy access or to “pop in after work.” Cobblestone Dental Care is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Dr. Wardian was born and raised in Spokane, Washington, and, after finishing dental school, built a successful dental practice which served the greater Seattle area for several years. Yet, as dedicated as he is to dentistry, he says his family comes first and he loves time with them and finding fun activities to do together. While he and his wife and 3-year-old daughter are newcomers to the desert, he says they have taken an “all-in” approach to learning about and getting involved in the community. They are members of the Chamber of Commerce and have sponsored a number of community events.
