Our dentists in University Park have saturday appointments available

We know our patients have busy schedules that can interfere with scheduling dental appointments, but our convenient office hours make it easy for you to fit a dentist visit into your busy life. If a weekend appointment works better for your schedule, we have Saturday hours available. We’re open all day Monday – Friday and we also see patients on Saturday. Whether you visit us for general, cosmetic, restorative, or emergency dental treatment, you can expect to receive excellent customer service and personalized, high-quality care. To help you relax, you’ll find a television in your treatment room. To relieve dental anxiety, ask about our sedation dentistry options, such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), which is a safe and effective way to help nervous patients feel at ease during treatment. Call our office right away if you’re experiencing a dental emergency. Whether you are a new or existing patient, we strive to accommodate emergency patients as soon as we can, offering same-day treatment during our normal business hours. Walk-in patients are always accepted and we’ll see them as quickly as our schedule allows.
