Things your dentist wants you to know

We all know how important dental hygiene is to our overall health, but we thought we would give you some reminders while you are waiting and thinking about your next dental appointment.

1. Dentists know more than teeth!
Dentists know more than your teeth. They are experts in your entire oral health, including “correcting jaw problems and detecting oral cancer” and detecting gum disease.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions about your mouth -we’ll have the answers or find a specialist for you!

2. There is a correct way to use toothpaste.
You should think about toothpaste as a lotion for your teeth, not just a soap. Just like lotion the more you use and the longer you let it sit on your teeth, the better your teeth will be. Take the extra time to let the toothpaste ‘soak in’.

3. Schedule regular appointments, not just when you’re teeth hurt.
We all know that when you have a pain in your tooth, a trip to the dentist is necessary. However, regular check ups when your mouth is feeling fine is needed for good oral health. The dentist may catch something early, or just clean your teeth so nothing serious occurs over time. Book Here

4. Money should not prevent you from taking care of yourself.  
We offer new patients free exams and x-rays. We have affordable, interest-free and long term payment plans designed help you get the care you need. We even offer 10% off for senior citizens. Need to find extra dental discounts, our website features valuable coupons for extra savings. We also accept insurance.
