Do I Need an Appointment to Be Seen at Dakota Family Dentistry?
All patients are seen by appointment only. Should you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please notify the front desk as soon as possible.

The second failed appointment may result in a discontinuation of the patient/doctor relationship.
