I recently needed a dental appointment ASAP, however was not able to get an appointment with my usual dentist. I called several dental offices, and each said the same thing ... it would be months to get an appointment. I was in pain, but was not going to exaggerate my condition to snag an "emergency" appointment. Instead, I called a local Health Center, and was surprised that they were willing to squeeze me in! I was impressed ... even my own dentist wasn't overly concerned about my tooth!
I was given an appointment two days after I called. The staff was above and beyond helpful and caring! I had a short wait in the waiting area, and then was greeted by the dental assistant who took an x-ray of my tooth, called to chat with my regular dentist, and then was ushered in to see one of the numerous dentists on staff.
They are easy to get to, and accept a variety of dental insurances. For those who are not fortunate enough to have dental insurance, they offer their services on a sliding-scale fee.
I was so happy with the care I received, I made another appointment!
