Attention!!!

We are pleased to announce that we are now permitted to provide all dental procedures and services. Our communities have been through a lot over the last few months. Smile Center is committed to the safety of our patients and our team. We will do our best to accommodate your scheduling needs. We thank you for your understanding during this changing time.

We follow recommendations and guidelines made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This allows us to make sure that our infection control procedures are up-to-date and enables us to provide the safest environment for our patients and our team.

Smile Center has implemented additional safety precautions to help protect our patients and staff. We will be scheduling appointments in a manner that promotes social distancing and allows for adequate time for us to disinfect all areas of use in between appointments.

Upon arrival at our office,
  • Call us before entering the building to let us know you have arrived. We will call or text you once the office is ready for you to enter.
  • We ask that patients enter the office unaccompanied.
  • A member of our team will meet you at the door to take your temperature with a contactless thermometer.
  • Every person entering the office is expected to wear a face covering and will be asked to sanitize their hands immediately upon entry.
  • A COVID-19 questionnaire will be reviewed with you.
  • EFFECTIVE 6/15/2020, THERE WILL BE A $25.00 PPE FEE FOR ALL VISITS, DUE AT THE TIME OF APPOINTMENT.


Clear plastic screens (sneeze guards) have been installed at the front desk to minimize exposure to airborne pathogens. Air exchange devices and new suction systems have been obtained and are being used to ensure the safety of patients and team.

Our doctors and staff will be wearing all of the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE).

Thank you for being part of our family dental practice. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back.

Emergency Dentist

Do you need emergency dental care?

Non-emergency conditions such as a dull toothache, lost filling or crown, chipped tooth (without severe pain), or broken braces wire do not need immediate care. Call the office as soon as it opens to schedule the next available appointment.

When the unexpected happens after business hours, don’t despair. Call our answering service when a true emergency occurs such as:

  • You have a broken tooth
  • An accident or injury damages your teeth
  • You have a tooth knocked out

Any time heavy bleeding that can’t be stopped, a possible broken jaw bone, or other traumatic injury occurs, visit your local hospital emergency room.

What to do in a dental emergency

Call the Smile Center right away. Our phones are covered during business hours by a live person, who can help you. After hours, you can reach our answering service for guidance.

Follow this advice closely:

  • Save the pieces. Whenever possible, keep any part of broken teeth or appliances, and bring them to the office with you.
  • Don’t cut wires. If braces are damaged, and the wire is abrading soft tissues, try to reposition it. Alternately, use dental wax or a small piece of gauze to cover it temporarily. Attempting to trim the wire can result in fragments entering your lungs or being swallowed.
  • Choose painkillers carefully. An over the counter painkiller, such as ibuprofen, can help keep you comfortable until you make it to our office. Do not take aspirin – it increases bleeding, and it should be avoided for at least three days before any dental visit or surgery.
  • Eat and drink carefully. Avoid sugary or hard foods, and chew on the opposite side of your mouth. Avoid extremely hot or cold beverages.

Our goal is to keep your smile beautiful, healthy, and pain-free.

We strive to help our patients avoid most dental emergencies with exceptional preventive care. Call the Smile Center at 716-634-4090.

I hate the dentist like a lot of people do but this place makes it painless and easy. They have a lot of the newest equipment, they accept my insurance and I can get an appointment when I need it without a hassle.
