As some of you have already heard, there was a fire in our building, and the damage was extensive. We’re in the process of assessing, and figuring out how to get back to providing care to you all as soon as possible. In the meantime, we are keeping up with voicemails and text messages, and working on setting up some staff to work remotely. If you have a dental emergency or a question about an appointment we are still here to help you. Don’t hesitate to call, we will get back to you shortly.
This has been our home for over 44 years, so this has been a heartbreaking day. But the love and support we’ve already gotten from patients, friends, and the dental community are really helping us through. Thank you all.
With love, Dr. Tom Pollard, Dr. Jill Pollard, and the whole Pollard Family Dentistry crew.

Cleanings, Exams, and X-Rays
Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Read More About Dental Checkups
