It’s all about timing

Unless you have had an accident or have a serious illness, most dental problems start out small, but they do not go away on their own. We see people every day that need root canals and crowns on their teeth that could have been avoided if they would have come in to see us sooner.

 Coming in every six months for a cleaning and exam is not only to get your teeth polished; it is also so the doctor can check your teeth and find things before they get big and expensive.

 We realize people can be afraid or don’t come in because they don’t have any insurance.  However, dental treatment is always more expensive and the problem more invasive if you wait.

 Three reasons not to delay coming in to see us:
·         At our office we can fix small fillings without anesthetic or drills if they are caught early enough.
·         If you need a crown, our crowns are all done in the same day, saving you time and repeat visits.
·         Over time, little dental problems will be become bigger and more expensive.
·         We will always give you options for both treatment and financing.

 If you have never been to our office and just want to meet the doctor and staff, come on in for a free consult.  If all you want to do is talk, that is fine with us too.  Hopefully you will leave feeling less unsure and more educated about dentistry.

  1. Hi there! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about dentist in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about dentist. Keep it up! This is a good read.
    All dentists in the U.S must graduate from high school and complete required courses such as general biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and statistics/calculus. While most dental schools require at least a bachelors degree, a few schools may consider admitting exceptional students after only 3 years of college. To apply, students must take the DAT or Dental Admissions Test. Admission to dental school is competitive, and is generally determined based on factors such as GPA, DAT scores, recommendation letters, and extracurricular activities. To become a licensed dentist, one must then complete an accredited dental school curriculum and successfully master all clinical competencies and national board exams. Most dental school curriculums require four years of training, however, some states require dentists to complete a post graduate residency program as well. In the U.S., a newly graduated dentist is then awarded the DDS, Doctor of Dental Surgery, degree or the DMD, Doctor of Dental Medicine, degree depending on the dental school attended. Both degrees are the same. A newly graduated dentist can then pursue further specialty residency training ranging from 2 to 6 years. Additionally, dentists participate in continued education where they attend lectures to learn of recent developments, practice new methods, and earn CE hours. There are specific requirements for dentists to attend continued education hours, and dentists who accumulate additional training are better prepared to handle a variety of cases and surprises during treatment. In the UK the training is similar except it is generally a five year undergraduate course leading to a BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery).
    One of the reasons that you may need to see a dentist is when you have sustained any serious injury to the soft tissues of the mouth.
