Modern Office

We value our patients’ time, so while we never cut corners on the quality of the care that we provide, we do our best to make our services as convenient as possible. Our team offers same-day treatment post-diagnosis, so once an issue has been identified, we almost always offer to take care of it right away so you can avoid making multiple trips to our practice.

We also offer family block appointments, so entire households can schedule their routine appointments all on the same day. Should a dental emergency arise, our team can make room in our daily schedule to see you right away.

When you come in for an appointment, feel free to ask for a blanket or put your favorite show on one of our TVs. We want you to feel totally welcome and relaxed at our practice, so if there’s anything we can do to make your visits better, just let our team know!
