We care about you and your health. That is why we conduct a thorough dental exam each time you come to us for routine care. By visiting your hygienist at least every six months for a cleaning, you give us and yourself the best opportunity to identify, track, and address potential oral health conditions. What should you expect? We will review your previous dental and medical history along with your films then conduct a complete oral exam to check for cavities, gum disease, jaw joint issues, as well as checking your face, neck and mouth for anything out of the ordinary. Dr. McArdle will take the time to thoroughly discuss any identified issues and work with you on a treatment plan. By catching and treating potential issues early, you not only protect your beautiful smile, you greatly lessen the need for more invasive and costly procedures.
