General FAQs

How Often Should I Schedule a Teeth Cleaning?

You should schedule a teeth cleaning every six months or as recommended by the dentist. If you suffer from gum disease, our team recommends more frequent visits.

Why is Flossing Important?

Flossing is essential to maintaining optimal gum and oral health. Flossing reduces the number of bacteria in your mouth that your toothbrush cannot get to. Without flossing, plaque builds up and eventually hardens into tartar if left untreated. Only dental hygienists are able to remove tartar.

What Can I Expect During a Dental Checkup?

At Dogwood Dental Care, we prioritize your comfort. At a dental checkup, we will ask you about recent medical history, examine your mouth, and decide whether x-rays are necessary. We will examine your overall dental health, evaluate your gums, and conduct an oral health screening to diagnose any issues. From there, we create a treatment plan personalized to your smile’s needs.

What Payment Methods Does Dogwood Dental Care Accept?

Cash, American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or CareCredit. We also accept most dental insurance plans and provide financing options.
