Be ready to wait at least 30 to 45 min. from the time you get there till you see the doctor. My appomint was at 11:00, I was there at 10:55, and did not get to see the doctor until 11:45. There was a lady that came in after me, her appomint was at 11:30,she did not want to wait so she ask to change her appomint. They changed it but gave her a warning that they needed 24hour notice next time or they would charge her $25.00. I give the place 3 stars because she seams to be a good doctor.

Cleanings went well, had a few fillings which went fine. Then one of my (large) fillings came out-- one that Dr Patel had done just a few weeks before. I called the office, left a message, called their dental emergency number and no answer. I will go somewhere else from now on. They still have not called me back.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
