We love our patients, so we’d be more than happy to see you every day! Alas, we realize that’s
not really possible, so here are some more realistic guidelines for making appointments.
In general, it all depends on your oral health status and your health history.
For most patients, the optimal frequency to visit the dentist is twice a year. In six months,
enough tartar and plaque can build up to require a dental check-up and cleaning, especially if
your dental hygiene isn’t as rigorous as it should be. We are open Monday through Thursday and offer teeth cleaning appointments on the hour between 8:00am and 4:00pm. The best way to schedule an appointment is by calling us at (425) 774-5596. We can also get you scheduled through our scheduling system RevenueWell or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For others with gum disease, a genetic predisposition for plaque build-up or cavities, or a
weakened immune system, you’ll need to visit more frequently for optimal care. Many insurance companies are even starting to cover more than two cleanings a year if you meet certain criteria.
Depending on where you fall in those categories, we will prescribe the necessary frequency to
keep your optimal health. Be sure to let us know the best way to remind you when its time to visit us whether it be email, text, phone call or snail mail.
It’s important to keep your routine visits with us so that:
• We can check for problems that you might not see or feel.
• We can find early signs of decay (decay doesn’t become visible or cause pain until it
. reaches more advanced stages).
• We can treat any other oral health problems found (generally, the earlier a problem is .
. found, the more manageable it is).
There you have it! Those are the brass tacks for how often you should schedule an appointment.
But don’t let this keep you from stopping in and saying hi whenever you’re in the neighborhood!
We love seeing your smile!
