If you're in pain, we would definitely want to ... the first goal is to get you out of pain the best way we know how. So, it could range from we could numb you, we can provide medications, we could handle infection, if there is infection, but we definitely want to know—pinpoint where it is exactly. So we do a thorough exam in that area where it's bothering you and try to get that pain under control.
When you visit us, Shirley E. Mathew, DDS, FAGD, Elizabeth T. Samuel, DMD, Mayada Al-Tamimi, DMD, and our compassionate team will relieve your pain fast and provide comfortable dental care.
Comfort Options, Dental Sedation, Flexible Appointment Times
If you are in pain, the first thing we’ll do is relieve it. Once you are comfortable, and numb if necessary, we will carefully plan your treatment. If we can preserve your natural teeth, we will repair them with a variety of restorative dentistry services.
To help entertain and relax you while we repair your smile, we provide TVs and headphones in our care rooms. You can also look out the window to enjoy the tranquil view of the lake behind our office.
If you are feeling anxious, we can also improve your experience and relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options.

- Monday 10:00AM - 8:00PM

- Use a cold compress to reduce swelling
- Stop any bleeding
- Take over-the-counter pain relievers to reduce discomfort
- Consume soft foods
