WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

“Truth be told, the dentist terrified me and I always had a reason to put it off. When I heard their motto, ‘We Cater to Cowards’, I laughed a little, but as it turns out, they really do. I can proudly say I no longer fear the dentist!”
- Erica, patient since ‘09

FLEXIBLE APPOINTMENTS

Finding the time to go to the dentist can be a struggle, which is why we offer evening appointments to accommodate busy lives. For your convenience, we are open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and on Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

WE CATER TO COWARDS

Our Motto is “We Cater to Cowards” because we know that going to the dentist can be difficult for some people. We offer “Creature Comforts” including complementary nitrous oxide, blankets, free WiFi and more to make your visit as pleasant as possible.
