Important Covid-19 Information

For the health and safety of the public, our office has suspended all non-emergency services.


In continuity with the UAB School of Dentistry recommendations, Shades Creek Dental will be suspending all non-emergency clinical care. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will remain available for dental problems that require immediate treatment in order to save a tooth, stop ongoing tissue bleeding or alleviate severe pain.

If you are not sure whether or not you are having a true dental emergency, answer the following questions:


Are you bleeding from the mouth?

Do you have any bulges, swelling or knots on your gums?

Are you in severe pain?

Do you have any swelling in the mouth or facial area?

Do you have any loose teeth?

Have you been hit in the face or mouth?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, please contact us by telephone (205-417-2750) or by email ( 

Most importantly, be kind to one another, wash your hands, practice safe social distancing, and check on your neighbors, especially those that are elderly or at high risk.
