How Long Has It Been Since Your Last Dental Appointment?
We know that this past year has been difficult for a variety of reasons. Routines and schedules have been changed and flexibility is often required at a moment’s notice. Between work and school, it has been overwhelming for many to fit everything in. We know that many of your appointments have been cancelled or postponed over the past year, and we want to encourage all of our patients who have not visited our office within the past 6 months to schedule their next hygiene appointment today.

Importance of Dental Cleanings
Health has been a hot topic for the past year. Frequent hand washing, sanitizing, and mask wearing is the new norm to keep everyone healthy and safe. It is important that we don’t forget about our dental health as well. Even if you do an amazing job cleaning your teeth at home, you still need to visit our office for a professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup. Staying up to date on your routine dental cleanings and exams not only benefits your oral health but your overall health as well. When you visit our office, we look for more in your mouth than just cavities and tooth decay. We also check for warning signs that a larger problem might be developing. We check for indicators of gum disease and oral cancer, and we evaluate any prior dental work that has been completed.
Schedule Your Next Appointment Today
If you have not visited our office within the past 6 months, we encourage you to pick up the phone today and schedule an appointment. We want to reassure you that we have all the safety protocols in place for your safety and ours. Our office is a friendly atmosphere, and we want all of our patients to feel welcome and cared for. We feel this way whether you were here 6 months ago or 6 years ago.
If you have any questions about our safety procedures, we would be happy to answer any questions you have when you make your appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon in our office located in Phoenix, AZ.
