Testimonials and Reviews

"This place is truly wonderful, and the staff is exceptionally kind, especially Brooke. She was pleasant, extremely easy to talk to you, and so so helpful when I was concerned about my tooth before a big vacation. She talked through everything with me, explained what the steps would be, and made sure to remember to tell me to have a good trip at the end of my appointment. I know that’s a small detail but it’s a really great way to make patients feel special. Thank you, Brooke!"

New Patient Resources

We love taking care of new families in the community. To establish yourself as a patient with us the first step is to call/text/email us to setup an appointment. New patient appointments come in two varieties. Some patients have a single dental issue, like a hurting tooth, and only want our doctors to address that issue with minimal x-rays, that’s a limited exam. Most new patients would like a more involved examination and full set of x-rays with the potential for a cleaning at the same appointment, that’s a comprehensive. For either of the appointments the paperwork below needs to be filled out for each patient before we can help you.
