Keeping You COVID-19 Safe

We are following all COVID-19 safety protocol, sterilizing all public areas after every patient. We schedule only one patient per appointment time, so you will not be in the waiting room with any other patients.

We provide routine, preventive, esthetic, and emergency dental care, including but not limited to exams, fillings, crowns, extractions, and root canal treatments. We also provide more specialized services such as implants and Invisalign® orthodontics.
