Our Clinic offers dental cleanings in the fall and spring seasons of the year. Our clinic partners with local dental hygiene programs and their dental hygiene students to offer these services. These students are supervised by one of our clinic dentists to provide excellent hygiene care to our patients.
Exams and X-Rays
Our clinic provides first time patients with exams and x-rays. Our clinic also completes updated x-rays for established patients on an annual basis. These exams and x-rays are completed to better understand a patient evolving dental needs.
Our dentures are made of an acrylic plastic that helps replace missing teeth and tissue. Due to advances in dentistry and advanced laboratory skill sets, dentures can look more natural and feel comfortable than in the past.
If you have missing or badly damaged teeth, dentures can restore your smile. A denture is a removable dental appliance made of acrylic plastic — and sometimes porcelain and metal — that replaces missing teeth and tissues. Due to advances in dentistry, dentures are more natural looking and comfortable than before. A denture can improve your appearance and help you chew properly and speak well again.

At your initial visit, the clinic will record your personal details, such as your address and date of birth. The clinic will collect your qualifying documents. Every new patient should present an ID, piece of mail and proof of a financial qualifier such as: proof of being a food stamp recipient, proof of being a recipient of Social Security Income, proof of living in Public Housing or Proof of being a Cherokee Patient. Returning patients will be asked to renew this information each year.
The clinic will also collect a full medical history to make sure that clinic providers are fully aware of any medical conditions, allergies, illnesses or medication that a patient may be taking in order to properly approach dental treatment.
The Dentist will then carry out a full check-up and chart all of your teeth and previous treatment, they will also assess the condition of your gums and your general oral hygiene. They may also take diagnostic x-rays.
If you need to have any dental treatment, our clinic dentist will discuss this with you. They may give you a treatment plan and explain that there may be costs associated with treatment.
