We Welcome New Patients!


We are currently accepting new patients and we will gladly treat any referrals. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to your first appointment to fill out necessary paperwork. You can also print off the forms available on our website, read, sign and bring with you to your appointment.




Financial Resources

We strongly suggest you contact your insurance company prior to making an appointment. If you have a plan that is not in-network we will be happy to bill your insurance, with the understanding that you will be responsible for the out-of-network fees. If you have any further questions or concerns relating to your particular plan, feel free to give us a call.

It is also used by cardholders to pay for deductibles and co-payments. It is easy to apply and with three simple steps, including an instant approval process, you can say goodbye to the wait time and reward yourself sooner!

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: I have an after hours emergency. What should I do?

A: Call our office at 618-537-2017 and if we don’t answer, we have a recording with our emergency contact information.


Q: I had a tooth extracted. How should I care for it?

A: Download our Home Care Instructions for Teeth Extractions for guidelines.


Q: My temporary crown came off. What should I do?

A: Attempt to place it back in with a little coating of vaseline in it. The vaseline may give it enough suction to stay in place. Do not bite it in place. If you can not get it back on, keep it out. Either way leave a message on the office answering machine and our office will contact you for cementation on the next business day.


Q: How long will my numbness last?

A: Depending on the arch and the number of injections, the numbness could last as short as a couple of hours to up to 5 hours. Be very careful not to bite your self while you are still numb. It is very easy to bite a lower lip and not know it until the numbness wears off.


Q: I just had a filling. How soon can I eat?

A: Depending on which type of filling you had will determine how soon you can eat. If you had a dental amalgam placed (silver filling), you should wait one hour before eating and then eat soft foods for the first 24 hours. If your filling was a composite filling(white or tooth colored), the filling is cured immediately and you should be able to eat immediately or as soon as the numbness wears off.


Q: Are you a provider for the active duty military dependents?

A: Yes, at this time our office accepts United Concordia (Tricare) for dependents of active duty military personnel.


Q: I am a new patient. What should I do for the first visit?
