We're accepting walk-ins. To avoid long wait times, please call (585) 275-5051 to determine the best time that day. Due to temporary staff shortages, on-hold and wait times may be longer, and we appreciate your understanding and patience.

New Patient?

The number of appointment slots for new patients is very limited. Please call to check for availability. Thank you for your patience.

Two Approaches to Care

1) You can enjoy a private practice setting, where patients are seen just by faculty at our University Dental Faculty Group

2) Our clinic settings that offers lower rates, where care is provided by supervised residents (dentists getting advanced, specialized training), and convenient locations.
