How can we help you?

We know you take your dental health seriously. Making informed decisions about your dental health depends on having all of the facts. Dr. Chris Forte believes that every patient should have all of the information available in order to make an educated decision about treatment.

From comparing your treatment options to questions about your insurance, Dr. Chris Forte’s team has the answers. Below is a list of some of the most common questions we are asked. If your question is not listed here, please feel free to contact us via phone or our online contact form.


If you experience a dental emergency such as a broken tooth, tooth pain, significant swelling, bleeding, or a lost restoration, we encourage you to call the office immediately. The sooner you call, the sooner we can address your concern and get you comfortable again. Putting off your dental emergency often creates a bigger problem or more pain for you down the line.

Dr. Chris Forte is committed to your comfort and health. Call the office, even if it is after hours, and describe your dental emergency in detail. We may ask you to come to the office for an evaluation or treatment.

Are you a new patient who has never been to our office? No problem. We want to take care of you, as well. We look forward to getting you established in our office and on the road to dental health.

Despite our best efforts, it sometimes becomes necessary to remove a tooth. Whether an infection is present or your tooth has cracked, Dr. Chris Forte is trained in oral surgery and can perform most types of extractions right in our office.

Our patients love that they can have all of their treatment with Dr. Forte. This eliminates the need for a referral to a specialist and the struggle of trying to get an appointment. Plus, they get to stay with the dentist they know and trust. We understand that continuity of care is very important to you, and our full-service philosophy was constructed with our patients’ needs in mind.
