How often should I visit the dentist?

The answer to this question depends on each individual patient's oral health. For patients with healthy gums, little or no history of decay, good homecare and no significant medical conditions, we can usually help you maintain optimal health by scheduling cleanings and check-ups twice a year. Not all patients fall under this category however. After performing a comprehensive exam, we will develop a plan together. It is our job to inform and educate you. We will discuss all of your treatment options, giving you the advantages and disadvantages of each procedure. You will never be pressured into making a decision. We customize each treatment plan to fit our patient's needs and wishes.

What is your recommended daily routine for my teeth?

As a baseline, all patients should brush at least twice a day and ideally floss once a day. Daily flossing seems to be a major obstacle for most people. As a starting point, even flossing just twice a week would make a huge difference in the health of your gums.

Do you accept insurance?

We work with many dental benefit providers. When you schedule or arrive for an appointment please have dental benefit information available for our office records. Accurate personal information is critical so we may provide you with the most up to date feedback regarding your dental benefit plan. We require that financial policies be reviewed by our clients prior to the initiation of dental care.
