While taking good care of your teeth at home is essential, the foundation of an effective oral health care routine involves visiting the dentist for a professional cleaning every six months. Aside from the benefit of having a meticulous cleaning, your dentist is able to discover and plan treatment for troublesome areas in your smile. When you make your appointment with Smile Makers Dental, you can rest assured that Dr. Gerald Brown, our hygienists, as well as our support staff, take a thorough and holistic approach to every procedure and treatment we provide.

Establishing a Thorough Approach From the Start
When a new patient comes in for a cleaning at Smile Makers Dental, they can expect a comprehensive approach to their care from the very beginning. Our complete exams include x-rays, oral cancer screening, and a TMD or sleep apnea check. We take time to discuss our findings and educate you on effective treatment methods that align with your oral health care goals.
Instructing our patients is a large part of every visit, but is truly effective at the first appointment to establish expectations and provide a plan for future care. Our hygienists take a big picture approach to your care, tying in the connection between your oral and systemic health, educating patients on beneficial ways to maintain not only their oral health but their overall health as well.
Professional Cleaning Twice a Year
The Academy of General Dentistry determined that dental patients receive the most benefit from undergoing a professional cleaning every six months. This routine reinforces at-home preventive care techniques and gives your dentist the chance to examine, maintain, and restore your smile to optimal health.
Our office is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and instruments to provide you with the highest quality of care. Your hygienist begins the cleaning by removing built-up plaque and tartar. After administering fluoride treatment, a polish is applied so you can leave our office with a bright, clean smile.
Your cleaning appointment concludes with a discussion of any necessary follow up treatments, and Dr. Brown provides you with helpful brushing, flossing, and dietary suggestions.
