The Dental Department strives to educate and improve the overall
health /dental health of our patients through comprehensive, quality
dental services. Our department provides emergency and comprehensive
exams, preventive and periodontal services, crown and bridgework, silver
and tooth-colored fillings, root canals, extractions, dentures, and any
tooth procedures within our scope that would help to improve and/or
maintain the health of our patients. Your first new patient exam
appointment will include a review of your medical history, thorough soft
tissue exam, an oral cancer exam, dental charting of all teeth, and
x-rays. Diagnosis and treatment needed will be explained to you at this
first visit. Appropriate follow-up visits will be scheduled until
needed treatment is complete.
Our team includes three dentists, two hygienists, five dental
assistants and dental secretary. We are here to serve you! However,
your cooperation is needed in order to provide you with the best care
possible. Arriving on time for your appointment is critical to our
patient flow. We want to have as much time as possible to give you
quality dental care. Good oral hygiene is key to a successful treatment
plan. Please brush your teeth prior to coming to your appointment. If
you have a fear of the dentist, please let us know in advance so that we
may take steps to make your visit more comfortable.
We provide services to all Native Americans. Patients who are not
eligible for Contract Health Services are required to pay for any lab
services incurred. We strive to see babies as soon as their first tooth
erupts. This enables us to provide preventive education to the parents
and helps build a positive relationship with the child.
When making an appointment, remember that we schedule four weeks in
advance. Once we are booked out four weeks, we ask that patients check
back the following week.
