To make an appointment:

  • Please call the Smile Center at 704-216-8796 to make an appointment.
  • When our schedule allows, we will accept walk-in visits for eligible patients.

If your child Has an emergency:

  • If your child has a toothache, you may give the pain reliever your child normally takes and then call the Smile Center to arrange an appointment.
  • If your child has bleeding from the mouth, or swelling of the face and/or jaws, take your child to the nearest hospital emergency room immediately.
  • If your child has been involved in an accident with an injury to the teeth, you may call the Smile Center if it occurred during business hours for further instructions or you may take your child to the closest emergency room.

Please feel free to call us during business hours and we will gladly answer any questions that you may have. We look forward to meeting with you and your child.
