Emergency Dental Services

Our priority is your smile and well-being. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be unclear what dental services are available. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends dentists limit elective services like routine cleanings, exams, fillings, etc., and provide only emergency dental services.

Dental Procedures

  • Inflammation of the gums or dry socket following oral surgery
