  • Emergency Treatment and Consultations
  • Orthodontics
  • Private Space for Children with Special Needs
  • Dental exams and cleaning for pregnant women

One parent, Ed, who has been an IWS patient for 15 years, accompanied his son, Raul, to the IWS enclosed dental operatory. After the cleaning, Raul boasted a bright smile. Ed relayed to IWS staff how grateful he is that Raul can receive a dental checkup where he feels safe and secure, because Raul is sensitive to noise, and dental checkups can be stressful. Ed has been so pleased with his family’s care at IWS, that he wanted to thank the staff for all services. Raul was first screened for developmental delay at IWS and continues to receive the informed and compassionate care he needs—medical, dental, and developmental delay therapy—all right here at the Angel Harvey Family Health Center.
