About Us

Big Gay Smiles Dental is an LGBTQ2IA+ owned practice that prioritizes comfort, quality, and community. We understand the stressors related to going to the dentist and actively work to redefine what it means to provide queer- (and ally-) focused dental care. Big Gay Smiles Dental invests in redefining the dental experience.

We pride ourselves in upholding our "10% Promise". Every year, we donate 10% of yearly revenue to local and national HIV/AIDS non-profits. Big Gay Smiles Dental is committed to investing in our patients and community. Come by and see why so many Big Gay Smiles Dental patients smile with PRIDE™!

Celebrating a Landmark Visit from the White House Introduction
