According to the American Dental Association, you should visit the dentist every six months for an examination and thorough dental cleaning. This can allow the dentist or dental hygienist to detect issues before they come major problems, potentially saving you time, money and a great deal of discomfort.
Once you have been warmly greeted and checked in, we will ask you to fill out a complete medical and dental history so we better understand your dental needs. You will then consult with the dentist in order to discuss any concerns or questions you may have. He will perform a thorough oral examination, checking your teeth and gums and taking any necessary x-rays. If there is any treatment needed beyond a basic dental cleaning, the dentist will thoroughly explain the treatment, why it needs to be performed, and the benefits you can expect to receive as a result of the treatment. You are encouraged to ask as many questions as necessary to truly understand your oral health care.
We work hard to provide the absolute best dental care possible to our patients, which means making your experience as stress-free and pain-free as possible. We have many different techniques to help with this, and will explain your options to you before we begin.
There are several tooth whitening options, including in-office bleaching, overnight bleaching or daily bleaching. If this is something you are interested in, please let the dentist or dental hygienist know so that we can discuss the various options and which one may work best to meet your specific needs.
It is important that our patients are not so concerned or stressed about their financial obligations that they have an unpleasant experience at the dentist. We offer several different payment options, and can even help you determine whether your dental insurance will cover certain treatment expenses and file your claims for you. Just ask our front receptionist for more information.
Please contact us immediately if you are experiencing a dental emergency. We will work hard to get you scheduled and taken care of as quickly as possible.
