Dental Express is the “One-Stop” shop for your entire family’s dental needs. We encourage you as the parent to bring your toddler to the office during your appointment. When your little one sees how comfortable Mom and Dad are in the office, it sets the tone for a lifetime of positive dental experiences.


Most families begin regular checkups for their children between eighteen months and two years of age.

Each patient’s needs are different at their first appointment. Most insurance companies will pick up all or most of the cost of new patient exams and x-rays. If they don’t, we’re happy to provide a New Patient Exam and any necessary x-rays for just $75.00.


For wisdom tooth or implant consultations, we offer a complimentary exam at no charge to you.

If your teeth look and feel fine, that’s great! But the signs of tooth decay and gum disease aren’t always visible to the naked eye. Even if you have healthy teeth, we recommend scheduling bi-annual cleanings and annual exams to catch potential issues early before they develop. When it comes to your smile, proactive and preventive care is the best medicine.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, please don’t hesitate to walk in or set up a same-day appointment with us:


  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Toothache
  • Chronic bad breath or bad taste in the mouth
  • Swollen jaw or neck
  • Chipped, damaged, or lost tooth
  • Missing filling or crown
  • Nerve pain
  • Extremely sensitive teeth


If you can’t make it the same day, schedule a checkup with us as soon as your schedule allows. Symptoms like toothaches and bleeding gums can be early warning signs for cavities and gingivitis, and addressing them early is the key to protecting your smile. In the event of a dental emergency, we’re always ready to provide urgent care, gain control of the issue, and get you back to smiling again.

Dental Express is pleased to offer you a variety of payment options for any uninsured portions of your care. We’re dedicated to working with you and building a treatment plan that fits your individual needs and budget. We accept major credit cards, offer payment plans, and are prepared to phase extensive treatments to help you maximize all your available insurance benefits.

To maintain that beautiful smile of yours, here are some Dental Express and American Dental Association-approved tips for your at-home oral care routine:


  • Brush twice with fluoridated toothpaste and floss at least once every day. And don’t forget to brush your tongue!
  • Change your toothbrush every few months or whenever the bristles become frayed.
  • Maintain a healthy, balanced diet, and do your best to avoid sugar-laden foods whenever possible. Your teeth will thank you!
  • To cure bad breath and protect your enamel, mix 2tsp of baking soda into a cup of water and use it as mouthwash one or two times a day.


Depending on your dental health, we may recommend a more rigorous home care routine or send you home with specialized products to keep your teeth healthy. Consistent care at home is one of the cornerstones of oral health. At Dental Express, we give you all the tools and knowledge you need to maintain a bright, happy smile outside the office.

At Dental Express, we’re fortunate that we have team members available to speak with you in many different languages, including English, Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Tagalog.
