We understand that sometimes life gets busy and appointments aren’t able to be kept. If you need to cancel please call the office where your appointment was scheduled to cancel.

For a routine dental appointment, we begin treating children at age four.  We also have pediatric specialists on staff in our Nesconset and Patchogue-Holbrook Road locations.

Most surgical procedures are done using a local anesthetic which would not interfere with driving.  If IV sedation is used, you will need to be accompanied by someone that can drive you home.

In most cases, a post and crown are recommended after a root canal depending on the tooth and the tooth structure remaining after the procedure.  Although, there can be certain situations where a filling can be placed.
