How often should my teeth be cleaned?
Most people should see their dentist for a cleaning twice a year, but should be customized to the individual.
What if I have a toothache?
Call and ask for an appointment. You could have an abscess, an infected root, a cracked tooth, or some other dental problem. Seeking help fast usually means less invasive methods can be used to fix the issue, and can head off more severe dental problems.
I hate the dentist. What can I do?
Ask about our sedation dentistry options. Our goal is for every visit to be anxiety free and for you to feel relaxed and safe when you come to our office.
I don’t like my smile. Can you help?
Yes! We offer a full range of cosmetic dental options that can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
I have kids. Do you see child patients?
We do. Our dentists offer pediatric dental care, and our goal is to make your child feel safe and view seeing their dentist as a fun, rewarding experience. Having proper dental care with a trusted dentist can lay the foundation for a healthy smile for the rest of your child’s life!
