Hours and Policies


We try our best to accommodate our patients as much as possible when scheduling appointments. We have found that children with extensive dental work or preschool children are better to be seen early in the morning when they are fresher and can have a more positive experience.


Our regular office hours are

Monday thru Thursday 8:00 – 5:00.


If you have an emergency, please call our office at 870-774-3278 and listen to our message.

Dr. Michael or a team member will return your call.


We request 24-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment, but we ask for your help as a courtesy to all of our families.


Our mission is to provide affordable, top-quality treatment. We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and CareCredit.  We thoroughly explain your options, so that we can accommodate your financial situation.



Our Team

Our primary asset is our

 talented and friendly team.


Your child’s appointment will be comfortable and enjoyable because of the extensive training our team has received and the relaxed environment that we have created.


We cultivate a relationship with each of our patients, which not only ensures better children’s dental care, but also turns a visit with Dr. Michael into a visit between friends.


Our staff members enjoy a long term relationship with both the office and our patients. Several staff members have been with us since we began practicing nearly 20 years ago. Many of our current patient’s parents were also seen by our office as a child!

Why choose a pediatric dentist?

A Pediatric Dentist, like Dr. Wharton-Palmer, is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised. In our opinion, taking your child to see a pediatric dental specialist is as important as taking them to see a pediatrician.
