Extreme dental pain can cause anxiety and make you apprehensive to come in. Dr. Tracy understands how to work with people that have high levels of pain and the anxiety that can come with it.

Our staff is caring and patient and they are here to guide you through the process.

Experienced Dentist:

Dr. Tracy has extensive experience working with emergency patients. Before opening her own practice, Dr. Tracy worked in public health and in a very busy private practice.

She saw many emergencies in both settings and has helped thousands of patients who were in pain and needed help right away.

Many of her long-time patients started out as emergency patients and decided to continue care with her.
