Planning Your First Visit

We recommend children start seeing the dentist for checkups at age 1. Visit for more information about young children and dental care.

Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to complete necessary paperwork. Please bring a copy of your dental records and a list of all your current medications.

For our patients who do not speak English, please call ahead to make proper accommodations.


The dental center works with most insurances. If you do not have insurance, one of our financial advocates can assist you.


Please call at least 24 hours in advance to cancel or change an appointment and call ahead if you are going to be late. Your appointment may need to be rescheduled at the discretion of your provider.

Please note, the dental center reserves the right to deny re-appointment of new patients for failing to call to reschedule.
