Dental care is an important part of your health. Our dental team provides both pediatric and adult dental care to keep your family’s smiles bright and healthy.
We treat patients of all ages, improving oral health through:
Regular dental visits are recommended every six months.
The American Dental Association recommends that kids visit the dentist by one year of age or 6 months after the baby’s first tooth comes in.
We offer walk-in appointments for dental emergencies. Emergencies include pain, swelling, infection, or trauma. We have limited openings Monday-Friday at our downtown and Cabot clinics. We recommend that individuals arrive as early as possible between 8 am-12 pm for walk-in appointments.
Dental care, including the use of x-rays, is safe at all stages of pregnancy. Poor maternal oral health can contribute to poor birth outcomes, including premature birth and low birth weights. We love to educate pregnant moms on good oral health habits that will help your little one get started early on a healthy, happy smile.
We provide transportation to and from all service locations. Contact us here.
Our priority is the health of you and your family. You are safe in our hands and your information is confidential.
We respect diverse values, beliefs, and feelings, and can provide care in multiple languages. Our staff, nurses, and doctors share the same diverse backgrounds as our patients and understand your life experience.
We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance. If you don’t have insurance, we can help you apply or we will determine a cost based on your income and family size. We will never deny health care if a patient is unable to pay.
