Caring Health Center is dedicated to providing our patients with the most effective dental care possible.


Full coverage restorations are sometimes indicated

to preserve a tooth with severe cavity, achieving

aesthetics and durability.


Periodontal Treatment

Did you know that “gum disease” is the number one

cause of tooth loss in adults? Daily brushing and

flossing combined with regular checkups will help

prevent periodontal disease. We also provide

professional deep cleanings for treatment of active

periodontal disease when indicated.


Complete and Partial Dentures

Missing teeth can affect the efficiency of chewing of

foods to keep a healthy nutrition. We are able to

help you restore the proper function of your mouth

and also give you a beautiful smile!


Root Canal Treatment

This procedure can save teeth with severe decay and

sometimes pain and infection from extractions.

Consult our providers to determine what the best

option of treatment for you is.


Oral Surgery

We are able to perform simple and surgical

extractions when indicated. We also can perform

Oral Biopsies when indicated as part of our oral

cancer screening.



We recognize that dental emergencies do arise. On

any day that a dentist is on duty, we will provide an

evaluation to any patient that presents to the clinic

with pain to make a determination of whether the

condition is an emergency or if a scheduled

appointment is in order.
