About Our Clinic
The answer is very simple. During your next dentist appointment, take a close look at our smiles. Our passion for what we do shines through!
Every Hummingbird Dental team member works diligently to create a warm (and chic, of course) environment. We believe that it shouldn’t feel like pulling teeth to visit your local dentist, we want you to enjoy the experience!
If you’ve booked your first appointment with us, we look forward to meeting you! Please read What Should I Expect During a New Patient Exam? on our home page to put your mind at ease.
Why do Our Patients Keep Coming Back to Us?
We know that our patients have diverse needs, and we strive to meet them. We get requests for an emergency dentist, cosmetic dentist and a great kids dentist. Patients also ask for help with dental insurance, a kind, gentle dental hygienist and a dentist open on Saturdays. Guess what? We can do all of this, and more!
We also love what cutting edge technology like digital x-rays and cameras, dental laser and state of the art endodontic equipment can do to help our patients (at affordable prices). Ask us about what new technology we’re excited about during your next visit!
Our Clinic Dental Hygiene
Dental hygiene is essential for maintaining good oral health, which can have a big impact on our overall health and well-being. When we talk about dental hygiene, we’re not just talking about brushing and flossing our teeth. We’re also talking about the importance of regular dental checkups and cleanings, as well as the impact of diet and lifestyle choices on our oral health.
Services in Six Different Languages
This probably doesn’t come as a surprise, but did you know that we can provide services in six different languages? At Hummingbird Dental, our talented team speaks the following languages:
