Why should I visit the dentist regularly?
Many people think if they hold off from seeing the dentist, they can save money. This is simply not true. Regular visits to the dentist are important to catch problems early rather than later, saving you money in the long run. You should plan on visiting our office twice a year so we can monitor your oral health and keep your smile healthy.
At what age should my child visit the dentist?
Our office follows the recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), which encourages you to bring your child to the dentist within six months after their first tooth erupts.
