It's very important to have the teeth checked regularly, make sure what's going on. It's not just polishing the teeth to make them look whiter, which is always nice, but it also getting the bacteria out under the gums that can cause bigger problems down the road. It's very important to come in regularly and do that, and we recognize how important that is.
For people who don't have dental insurance, we have a savings plan where the people can get two cleanings a year and all the X-rays they need at a significant discount, and they also save on any other dental work that might need to be done. We try and do everything we can to help people out, to make sure they can come in regularly because it is so important to find things when they're small, come in regularly and maintain things.
You've got a long life to live, and you're going to eat the whole time, and smile, and talk, and so it's important to keep your teeth as well as you can, to do everything you can to keep them. We can do amazing things to replace them, but the best thing is your own teeth to start with, so that's why cleanings are so important.
An important part of the normal cleanings when we get people is to make sure we're educating them on how to take care of their mouth, and their teeth themselves, because it's important to get the gums and the teeth clean and healthy and keep them that way. Patients that we've taken care of will say, “My gums have always bled, and I always had bleeding, and I just thought that was normal,” and now their gums don't bleed, and they're healthier. That means they're going to have less problems, and less things that need to be done, and that makes them happier. They can eat more comfortably, they don't have aching or nagging things that they didn't think about, but they were just there. All of a sudden, things are healthy, and they can smile, and that's better for their general health, as well as the health of their teeth.

Your visit will begin with a tour of our office. Then you’ll meet the dentist himself in his office. You’ll have an opportunity to chat with him about your oral health goals. Whether you have questions about cosmetic dentistry, preventive treatment, or oral pain, Dr. Weddell or Dr. Harms will be happy to give you an answer.
You’ll then be escorted to the exam room, where a special new patient gift will be waiting. Your dental exam will begin with a discussion about your dental history, then we’ll give you an oral cancer screening and take new X-rays if needed.
We’ll explain a suggested treatment plan and schedule your teeth cleaning. Additional appointments for other treatments needed such as wisdom teeth removal, dentures, or braces will also be scheduled. Our office manager will then meet with you to discuss your payment options and insurance.
At your teeth cleaning appointment, you’ll have the option of giving your teeth an extra layer of protection against cavities with dental sealants and fluoride treatments. This added protection can help prevent the need for teeth fillings or other more invasive dental work later on.
