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.
