We ask that you allow your child to accompany our staff through the dental experience. Children aged 3 and up will go back to see the Dentist by themselves with our trained staff. Children aged 2 and under will be allowed to come back with a parent or legal guardian.


Payment for professional services are due at the time dental treatment is provided. Every effort will be made to provide a treatment plan, which fits your schedule and budget.

We accept cash, Master Card, Visa and Discover.

Appointment Scheduling

Our office will attempt to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available. Preschool children (1-5 years) should be seen in the morning because that is when they are fresher and we can work more slowly with the child for their comfort. Dental appointments are an excused absence and we will provide your child with a school note. Missing school can be kept to a minimum when regular dental care is in place.
