Dr. Pinkerton accepted me as a new emergency patient about 8 years ago. I'm very fearful of dentists and she was gentle and reassuring. She's been our family dentist and has dealt with everything from routine exams to the restoration of broken front teeth to providing the permanent replacement tooth for a dental implant. She has been extremely responsive, coming in on her days off to deal with our emergencies. Her staff is pleasant and professional. Her offices are very clean and she uses state-of-the-art equipment. She's a third generation dentist and takes great pride in her work. Even though our insurance plan isn't accepted by Dr. Pinkerton, we use her services anyway. She's worth it!
