About White Smiles Dentistry

White Smiles General Dentistry is a new dental practice located in East Hill Pensacola.  We are in a shopping center on 12th Avenue next door to the old Sacred Heart Hospital.  Construction of the office was completed in February of 2017 and the treatment of patients soon followed.   Most patients are excited to learn that we are able to schedule their appointments within one to two weeks of contacting us.  Of course if there is an emergency situation we are able to see those patients within one or two days. ​

Providing you with the best staff for the best care.

She is also active in helping with scheduling and patient billing.
