Hours of Operation

We are open to serve you, answer questions or schedule an appointment during the following hours:

Monterey Office: Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday: 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Salinas Office: Thursday, Friday & Saturday: 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

We are also available after hours and on weekends if you have an orthodontic emergency. All patients have exclusive access to the doctors during non-business hours through the after-hours hotline.


Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you. Dr. Criswell values your time and aims to complete your appointment on time and as efficiently as possible so that you can enjoy your day. In order to give every patient the care and attention they deserve during their appointment, we request a 24-hour notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment, and appreciate your cooperation.


Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. We accept many types of insurance, including MetLife Tricare, Delta Dental, and numerous others. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.
