  • Tips to Prevent Cavities

    Cavities are little holes in teeth that can eventually cause big problems. They form when tooth-eroding acid attacks a tooth's protective outer covering (enamel). This acid mainly comes from two sources: your diet, and certain oral bacteria that thrive in the absence of effective oral hygiene. If cavities ...

    You've no doubt heard it said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In dentistry, you might say it's worth two pounds. Maybe even thousands of dollars.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "Dr. Farrell is a lifesaver. I had an abscessed tooth that was killing me and he was able to get me in right away. I've had bad experiences with dentists in the past but Dr. Farrell and his staff made me feel very comfortable. Nitrous Oxide was offered and given to me. I had to have a root canal and after my numbness went away, I had no pain at all. Thank you, Dr. Farrell and staff!!"
    Josh
  • "Dr. Farrell is AMAZING! He makes a not so fun situation so much better! He does excellent work! The office staff is outstanding as well. I had to have an emergency procedure the day after Christmas, he didn't blink an eye, we were there until well past midnight taking care of me while he was leaving at 6 in the morning for a flight. I highly recommend Dr. Farrell for any of your dentistry needs."
    Kristine
  • "To all the people who are scared of any kind of teeth problems, here in our own county is the best dentist I have ever known. William L. Farrell in Palo Cedro is a person with personality, I am a senior citizen who has gone to Dr. Farrell (Larry to all his friends and neighbors) for a period of some forty years and am proud to say I would never go anywhere else. So when you are in need of honest care, go see Larry and I know you will have the same experience that I have had through all my times of needs for caring and honest dentistry. Thank you for taking the time to read what I have had to say."

  • "Dr. Farrell's staff were all very nice and caring. He was able to see me on a weekend and did not charge after hour fees. Although I am not a fan of Fox News when I asked for it to be turned off they agreed with a smile and gladly put on the radio. They were very attentive and Dr. Farrell made sure he did a good job. I had some crowns done and they are beautiful. The cleaning was the best I have ever had. The hygienist really explained everything she saw and helped me understand how to improve my dental health. I will gladly recommend them to my friend and family seeing her and Dr. Farrell."
