"Dr. Kim Turnbow and her staff always puts the patient first. Always greets me with a smile, very prompt on appointment time, and provides compassionate care. After a thorough examination and evaluation, we discussed the plan options and how to move forward. Wouldn't trust my family's dental care to anyone else."
"This is without a doubt the best place I've had dental work done. Dr. Turnbow is so awesome, and everyone else in the office is amazing. Had a crown and filling done today and it was so easy. Dr. Turnbow definitely knows what she's doing."
"Love Dr. Turnbow and her staff. We were seen very quickly upon arriving and Dr. Turnbow took the time to sit with me to go over our family history before seeing us since it was our first visit. She and her staff were very friendly and professional and were great with my children. My only regret is that we didn't start seeing her earlier!"

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?
In urgent situations, prompt treatment is crucial. The first step is to contact our team, allowing us to gather essential information about your situation over the phone and arrange a good time for you to visit our office. Meanwhile, you can ease any discomfort you're experiencing at home by using a cold compress or over-the-counter pain reliever.
Please note: If your dental injury is accompanied by difficulty breathing, trouble swallowing, a fractured jaw, or another potentially life-threatening condition, it's imperative to dial 911 or go to your local emergency room. Once you've received the necessary medical attention, we'll be here to help restore your smile.
How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?
To begin, it's easy: identify your specific needs! For instance, if you're in search of a highly-rated dentist, a good starting point is to use Google and search "dentist near me" before delving into the reviews. For most people, the objective is to find a dental practice with an excellent team, a wide range of services, acceptance of insurance, and a strong emphasis on cleanliness. If all these aspects align with your criteria, then your search ends here – we're eager to be your committed dentist!
What Is the Best Way to Find a Cosmetic Dentist?
The best way to find a cosmetic dentist is to look for one who has undergone advanced training in cosmetic dentistry through reputable organizations. While there isn't a singular designation for cosmetic dentists, extensive involvement in respected institutions speaks volumes.
Some of the highest-profile organizations in the US for cosmetic dentistry include the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (AAED), and the Las Vegas Institute. Additionally, many dental schools and other reputable organizations offer excellent continuing education programs in cosmetic dentistry.
What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?
You don’t have to worry about the cost of visiting us! We have several ways to help you save. Firstly, we welcome dental insurance and offer a membership plan for uninsured patients. Additionally, we accept flexible financing options through CareCredit.
It's important to note that prioritizing preventive care plays a significant role in keeping treatment costs down. Regular checkups allow us to catch oral health issues in their early stages, preventing them from progressing in the future. This means that every dollar invested in preventive care can lead to savings ranging from $8 to $50 on cosmetic and restorative treatments in the long run!
