Yes, regular dental check-ups are crucial even if you're not experiencing dental issues or pain. They help identify potential problems early, preventing more significant and costly issues in the future.
How can I alleviate dental anxiety or fear?
Dental anxiety is common. Our team is focused on creating a positive, comfortable experience for all our patients. Additionally, we recommend relaxation techniques like deep breathing or bringing a support buddy to your appointment to feel more at ease during your visit.

How often should I visit the dentist?
We recommend that most patients visit us every six months for a regular check-up and prophylaxis. However, the frequency of your dental visits can vary depending on your oral health needs.
