About Our Founder
Dr. Prince Arrington, III is the founder and principal dentist at Dental Urgent Care. Dr. Arrington majored in biological sciences at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC, and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 1983 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry. For 30 years Dr. Arrington owned and operated The Creative Smile Center, PLLC, providing the entire range of general dental services to families and individuals. Dr. Arrington’s love for warm weather and the beach brought him back to Boca Raton, Florida. In addition to complying with the continuing education requirements of the North Carolina and Florida Dental Boards, Dr. Arrington has exceeded those minimums and attended and received certification in advanced continuums including the Medical College of Georgia AAID implant course, Invisalign orthodontics courses, and the John Russo Bone and Soft Tissue Grafting Course, among other extensive training. Dr. Arrington fervently believes that the highest level of care requires staying up-to-date with all of the newest techniques and advancements and therefore requires continuing education not only for himself, but also for his staff as well.
Dr. Arrington’s mission at Dental Urgent Care is to provide high quality dental care at convenient hours, including after-hours and weekends. Patients no longer have to miss time from work or school to receive quality dental care. He has therefore established a unique office where patients may receive immediate pain relief and other urgent services at the highest standards in the industry using only the most qualified professionals, state-of-the-art facilities, and best quality materials – all leading to an affordable, pleasant, and painless experience. Along with his highly trained staff and modern office, Dr. Arrington can handle any urgent dental need that may arise within the scope of general dentistry. Likewise, he can provide appropriate pain relief for patients needing specialty services. Dr. Arrington adamantly believes that dental care should be an entitlement for everyone all of the time – not just between the hours of 9-5 Monday thru Friday. Now because of Dental Urgent Care, patients no longer need to suffer in pain, delay needed care, or miss important affairs when dental emergencies arise.
Dr. Arrington believes that truly great patient care involves a close collaboration between all of a patient’s caregivers. Therefore, he has always worked closely with other comprehensive care dentists, specialists, and medical doctors – all inuring to the patient’s benefit. Dr. Arrington works closely with referring dentists who need extra coverage for their patients with urgent needs by treating only the area referred for treatment, and then returning the patient to his or her own dentist for continuing or follow-up care.
Dr. Arrington is a proud Veteran having served in the US Air Force from 1972 to 1976. He was nominated by his commanding officer, and attended and completed NCO Leadership School at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana where he graduated as a Distinguished Graduate. Dr. Arrington credits his military training with instilling in him the drive to be the best that he can be. This motto continues to drive his quest for excellence at Dental Urgent Care.
