Qs & As

Q: How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

A: Every patient has unique dental health requirements, but in general, we recommend bi-annual routine dental cleanings, exams, and x-rays. Regular visits help prevent tooth decay and allow us to screen for developing oral health issues.

Q: At What Age Should I Take My Child to the Dentist?

A: Children should start seeing a dentist for regular checkups as soon as their first tooth has grown in, or by the age of one. Regular dental visits at a young age help us monitor your child’s dental health and development.

Q: Can I Put off Needed Dental Work for a Few Months?

A: If you wait to undergo necessary dental work, treatment can become more complex and more expensive. It’s always advisable to treat oral health problems as soon as possible.

Q: Do You Offer Same-Day or Emergency Appointments?

A: Nobody should have to suffer from tooth pain. If you are in pain or need a same-day appointment, please call the office as soon as possible. We do our best to see emergency and same-day patients quickly.
