Our office facilitates communications, emergency calls and appointments when available and welcomes (especially for new patients seeking help with any and all dental problems) new patients.


As part of our regular dental services we will be more than happy to submit all insurance forms for you and help you recover the most from your benefits. We will do everything possible to help you afford the treatment you need and want. For patients who require major work, a complete affordable payment plan is designed with a manageable payment schedule to fit your budget. Forms of payment accepted by the office are check, cash, or any major credit card.


If you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask that you kindly provide us with at least 24 hours notice. We ask for this advance notice so that we can offer this appointment to another valued patient just like you. A fee may be charged if a patient does not show up for an appointment without sufficient notice.
Dr, Rufo and his team would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our practice for your dental care.
