Keep your teeth healthy during the other 363 days

It's recommended that you schedule a routine exam twice every year. For the rest of year, it's up to you to keep your smile in top shape. Take advantage of these helpful tips for the best results at your bi-annual check-ups.

How many times a day should I brush my teeth?

The American Dental Association recommends that brush twice a day and floss at least once a day for the best results.

Why do my gums bleed when I brush and floss my teeth?

Bleeding gums are a sign on Periodontal Disease. If left untreated, this can lead to tooth loss.

How do I make my teeth whiter?

We offer two options at our office. One is in-office teeth whitening. The second is take-home bleaching trays.

How often do I need x-rays?

The frequency that x-rays are needed can differ from patient to patient depending on your oral health, age and the symptoms you are experiencing. As a new patient, we will take x-rays to evaluate your current oral health, we will review your history, and then we will determine how often x-rays are needed.

Find the right dentist for your needs

Do you see children? If so, at what age do you recommend they start seeing a dentist?

Yes, we are happy to see children of all ages. We recommend children see a dentist for the first time around the age of 2, so that they can become familiar with our office and comfortable with our friendly staff.

What types of fillings are done at your office?

We offer composite, or tooth-colored fillings, as well as amalgam, or silver fillings. The type of filling material used depends on the location and the amount of decay that needs to be removed.

How do I pay for dental services?

There are a few different options to pay for your dental services. One option to help pay for services is using dental insurance, which we are happy to file for you. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards. We also offer interest-free financing or extended payment plans. We are happy to customize a payment plan to meets your needs.

I have a latex allergy. Can I still be seen in your office?

Yes! We have latex free products for your comfort and safety.
