If you are currently experiencing pain or a dental emergency, please contact the location nearest you, and we’ll schedule you for a problem-focused exam with one of our doctors to immediately address this concern.

We can’t wait to meet you, so to make your first visit as successful and easy as possible, please bring the following documents with you when you arrive at our office:

  • Your insurance information so we can help estimate any out of pocket costs
  • Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable
  • A list of medications you are presently taking
