Have a question for us? Our patients ask us interesting questions every day, so we thought it would be helpful answer to some of the most common ones right here on our website. If you happen to have a question that we haven’t addressed here, be sure to give us a call and ask! We always happy to talk dentistry and make sure you completely understand your options. No question is too small!
How often should I visit the dentist?
Dr. Barratt recommends that everyone should visit the dentist at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings as it’s the best way to keep your smile looking great and avoid preventable issues such as tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and more.
When are you open?
We are open 8 AM-5 PM Monday through Friday.
Why do I need regular checkups even if I brush and floss every day?
Great question! The short answer is that your home routine simply isn’t enough to meet all of your dental needs. Brushing and flossing are essential, but they aren’t able to clean every single part of your mouth like a professional cleaning can. Plus, if you do develop a problem, regular checkups will enable us to catch and treat it before it can become serious.
