New patient form: If you’d like to save a little time, download our New Patient form from our website and fill it out in the convenience of your own home. The time to document important information — like your medical history or a list of medications you’re taking — is while you’re at home with easy access to your personal files and medications.

We’re certainly not going to judge your brushing skills so there’s no need to pretty up your smile before you get here. That’s what you’re paying us to do.
