Common Questions

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Please make sure that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment so that you can provide us with the necessary paperwork and insurance information.

Do you allow same day or emergency dentist appointments?

We do set aside certain times during the day for emergency dentist visits.

What is your cancellation policy?

We require 24 hours notice to cancel all appointments. Please be sure to contact us if you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment.


What should I expect when having a dental cleaning and examination?

An oral exam consists of examining your teeth, removing plaque, potentially taking x-rays, along with a deep tooth cleaning and polish. Your teeth and tissues will then be examined for any issues.

How often should I brush and floss my teeth?

We recommend you brush your teeth twice a day and encourage daily flossing. The most effective way to prevent the build up of plaque is through daily flossing.

What kind of toothbrush is most recommended?

We recommend a soft bristled brush or an electric toothbrush for the optimal health of your gums. We also suggest a small headed brush to get around each tooth more thoroughly.

Do I need to floss regularly?

Yes, it is important to floss daily because flossing removes plaque between teeth where it is hard for a toothbrush to reach. A major contributing factor to gum disease is caused by not flossing.

How do I know if I have gum disease?

Unfortunately, most people that have gum disease are unaware of it. Because gum disease is painless as it begins, it is crucial to schedule regular dental exams. Symptoms of gum disease include consistent bad breath, receding gums, red or bleeding gums, new spaces between teeth, and loose teeth. If you have a concern about gum disease we recommend you make an appointment at our dentist clinic.
