Upham’s Dental Clinic’s state-of-the-art facility offers a wide range of comprehensive and emergency dental services for children and adults. 

Upham’s Dental Clinic has been a pillar of the community for over 30 years. We are committed to helping all patients make the connection between oral health and overall health: healthy teeth and gums, balanced nutrition, a healthful lifestyle, and regular dental care all contribute.

We have a diverse team of doctors, dental hygienists, and dental students. The clinic provides full preventative and restorative dental services including non-surgical endodontics. Referrals to oral surgeons are handled efficiently for complex cases.

We are accepting new patients!
