We are doing our part and help get everyone through the current dilemma. We will be consolidating some of our clinics but otherwise continue to provide urgent and emergency dental care. We will be donating our extra supplies to local hospitals to help them in their effort to better care for those affected.
To also help, we are now expanding our hours in some of our clinics from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. We hope these extended hours will not only better serve our patients but will help keep dental emergencies from overloading value space in emergency rooms.

"Finish the Sentence" with Bethany
If I was stuck on an island for a year and could only listen to 3 musicians, they would be... Bob Marley, Phil Wickham, & Vance Joy.
When I wake up the first thing I do or think about is... water, but the first thing I do is brush my teeth.
