Please note that we will be providing a cleaning, a filling or extraction. It would be helpful to know what service you need when you register but it is not required. You will also receive a dental exam to determine the best service for you.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason. We will not be providing treatment to minors under 18 years of age, but we will be able to offer a screening, fluoride varnish and hygiene education for kids. Please note that screenings for kids are from 10am to 12pm and 2pm to 4pm.
Patients will go through registration, a medical history screening, a dental exam and/or treatment.

Wait times can vary from 30 minutes to 6 hours. You may be able to leave and return to the premises for treatment after registration. Please note that we will not able to contact you to return for treatment and we cannot save your spot if you do not return in time.
Lines for a specific treatment may be shorter than another. For example: We will have oral surgeons who are only providing extractions and hygienists who are only providing cleanings. The line for extractions is generally shorter than the hygiene cleanings. If you are waiting for a hygiene cleaning, someone who arrived after you for an extraction may be seen before you are.
We will only have a limited amount of extractions, cleanings and fillings for the day. If a treatment you want is no longer available, we highly recommend continuing to have your dental exam with us. You may possibly require a treatment other than what you expected to have. If all services are booked for the day, we recommend having a dental exam in order for you to assess what treatments you should receive elsewhere. We will also have a list of sources to receive low or no-cost dentistry around the city.
