How often should I visit the dentist?
We encourage patients to visit us for checkups at least two times each year. As in all aspects of dental care, we will create a personalized plan to meet your oral health needs, but visiting our office at least every six months is a standard of care we support for all patients.
Can I bring my kids to your office?
We welcome adults and children in our family dental practice. We’re happy to treat young children, and our team members have years of experience working with these patients to develop healthy, happy smiles.
Should I consider dental implants?
If you’re missing a single tooth or a full row of teeth, dental implant supported tooth replacement may be the solution you’re looking for. The implant posts look, feel, and function like natural root systems, and they offer a more stable, longer lasting tooth replacement option.
Why should I visit the dentist for sleep apnea treatment?
For those patients who suffer from sleep apnea who struggle with adapting to CPAP therapy, travel frequently, or aren’t adequately treated with CPAP alone, oral appliance therapy from our team may be a viable alternative.
Can I call if I have a dental emergency?
We are happy to offer urgent dental care appointments for those patients experiencing dentistry emergencies. In many cases, we’re able to see patients on the day they contact us.
