Sage Dental Clinic Provides services to persons of all ages. With our full-time dentists and hygienist we are committed to providing you with professional and quality services.

Sage Dental services a wide area:1,800 square miles and 22,000 patients. Over 10% of the Navajo Nation (See service area map).

Sage Dental offers services at field clinics in Greasewood (two chairs) and Sanders (four chairs) with a rotating dentist from the main clinic 4 times a week. Our main clinic in Ganado consists of eight chairs and five dentists.  We are reaching only 20% of our potential need. The continued growth of the Dental Clinic has been a major project for Director Andemichael. Constant search and recruitment of dentists with talent and a willingness to practice in a rural and remote environment will remain a priority.

With the rising demand, Sage Dental only accepts new patients one day a month. Walk-ins are accepted every day for emergency visits.

Sage Dental has sealant programs with the local schools.  We offer diagnosis and treatment for children so that good dental habits and cavity prevention can begin at an early age.

In 2002, Sage Dental had a total of 8,426 clinical visits. That number continues to climb. We are focused on becoming the preferred dental provider in our area. Our patients receive comprehensive treatment (exams, x-rays, cleaning, cavity fillings, other).

Our staff consists of eleven assistants, three receptionists and a Secretary/Accounts Representative. Sage Dental provides a comfortable office environment. Our staff is easy going, helpful and kind. Our dentists are down to earth and make the patients feel comfortable. We have a professional, dedicated and fun working staff.
