Because a healthy smile lasts a lifetime!
Your teeth are an important part of your body and keeping them clean helps keep your mouth and your body healthy. By taking care of your teeth, eating a balanced diet, and visiting your family dentist regularly, you can have healthy teeth and an attractive smile throughout your entire life.
How often should I visit the dentist?
Most people benefit from having a checkup and teeth cleaning at least every six months.
What happens when I visit the dentist?
During your visit, you will receive a thorough teeth cleaning and an oral exam by the dentist. During the oral exam, the dentist checks your dental health, including your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. At each visit, the dentist also checks old dental fillings and restorations because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.

Plus, part of feeling good is looking good.
How Should I Choose A Dentist?
When you have investigated these five things, take time to do a brief mental review of the experience you have had. Recall how you have been treated on the phone. The treatment you receive from the appointment coordinator can often be an indication of how you are going to be treated in that office by other team members as well, including the dentist.
The above suggestions are just some of the things you can ask and observe in order to make the right choice of a dentist who will serve you and your needs the best. Take the time to ask the right questions so you'll have the peace of mind of knowing that you are in the best hands for what you want for the long-term health of your mouth and your smile.
