What is family dentistry?

How often should my family visit the dentist?

Routine visits are an essential part of maintaining good oral health. Although seeing the dentist every six months is a good rule of thumb, it truly depends on your health and oral hygiene. 

Certain factors like smoking, diabetes, and gum disease can require more frequent trips to the dentist. During your visit, Dr. Miller can determine how often you should come in. 

What should I expect during a family dentistry appointment?

During a routine family dentistry appointment at Miller Dental, Dr. Miller performs an oral exam and professional cleaning. In some cases, he may conduct digital X-rays to check for any problems with your teeth. Dr. Miller also discusses any changes or problems you’ve experienced with your oral health. 

The purpose of a routine visit is to maintain the function and appearance of your teeth and identify any problems before they pose any significant threat to your oral health. 

In addition to routine family dentistry visits, Miller Dental offers emergency dentistry. Emergency dentistry allows you to access personalized dental care when you need it the most. Emergency visits are appropriate for issues like injuries, infections, and severe toothaches.

Miller Dental also does an all-star prize drawing for cavity-free kids to promote good oral hygiene from a young age.
