While dental insurance is helpful with assisting in the cost of your care, there will usually be some amount of out-of-pocket expense that you will be expected to pay at the time of service. Our office will help you understand your benefits prior to treatment and file all of the necessary insurance claims for your convenience.

What days are you open?

Below are our office hours:

Monday 8:30am to 5:00pm
Tuesday 8:30am to 6:00pm
Wednesday 8:00am to 1:00pm
Thursday 8:00am to 5:00pm
Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm

Our patient treatment days are on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. We also provide treatment on Wednesdays by appointment. On Wednesdays, we are open as a convenience to our patients in assisting them with scheduling or to answer any questions.

What if I can’t make my appointment?

We understand that last minute situations happen. When you schedule an appointment with us, a specific amount of time is reserved especially for you and we strongly encourage all patients to keep their appointments. Last minute cancellations affect our schedule, staff and other patients. If you must change your appointment, please do so at least two business days in advance.

What should I do if I have a dental emergency after hours?

If an emergency should occur after hours during the week or on the weekends, please call the office phone number for instructions on how to reach Dr. Patel. Please keep in mind that most dental emergencies result in only minor discomfort or inconvenience and do not necessitate an after-hours office visit. If you have severe swelling, pain or other discomfort, please use our after-hours emergency number to contact Dr. Patel immediately. If you suspect you are having a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1 right away.

I forgot the homecare instructions that were discussed after dental treatment. How can I get a copy of what to do?
