Opioid mis-use

DIdn't receive a narcotic prescription after your dental procedure? It may be due to overuse in the general population... Dentists have been urged by the ADA to help prevent opioid abuse since 40% of the 47,000 people who have died from drug overdoses involved opioid analgesics. Visit for more information.

New Weekend Hours

Back by popular demand! We will begin Saturday hours in September. The first Saturday of every month will be available by strict, prescheduled appointment only. Any missed or cancelled, pre-scheduled appointments will be assessed a $50 no show appointment fee and we will not be able to extend a Saturday appointment for 6 months. Thank you so much for your patronage and patience as we grow and transition.
