Teeth Whitening High Point NC

Your teeth are looking a little drab lately, and as you cruise the aisles of your favorite drug store, you see row upon row of teeth whitening products. You think, “Why not? I could really use some ‘dazzling results’ about now.”

What’s in That Stuff?

The American Dental Association says that using over-the-counter kits is generally safe, but they do point out the possible risk for gum ...

Your Diet - What's Good, What's Bad, and What's Going On Inside Your Mouth

Bad Breath High Point NCWe don’t need to remind you that a balanced diet is crucial for keeping your mouth and body healthy, do we?  Mom, dad, and your dentist always said that, to avoid cavities, you have to avoid the sugary foods and beverages you enjoy most - soda, energy drinks, and candy. So much for that sweet tooth of yours!

But you did your best to follow the directive, and as a responsible adult you now control the intake of these wonderful/terrible goodies. But let’s say that you’re having one of those days and, boy, wouldn’t a candy bar do wonders for ...

Is it Time to Break Up With Your Dentist?

General Dentist High Point NC

It’s important to be completely comfortable with your dentist. It doesn’t matter how good, or how qualified a dentist is - if you don’t like his or her chairside manner, you’re less likely to follow through with appointments.

Do you remember why you broke up with your last dentist? Was it because he or she made you feel guilty about your oral health habits? Maybe it was a lack of communication and concern for your feelings. Maybe you stopped seeing them because you felt like you were just another patient taking up their valuable time.

It IS All About You

As a patient, you have a right to expect to be treated with ...

Stress-Free Group Family Appointments

We want to see you smile!

If you’ve ever seen yourself in the mirror and gotten depressed just looking at your smile, we’d like a word…

A warm, welcoming smile can set the tone for a friendship, a business partnership, or any kind of interaction between two people. But we know how frustrating it can be when you’re embarrassed about the way your teeth look and just don’t feel like smiling.

Seriously, who wants to be greeted with a forced, tight-lipped grin? But, if you're self-conscious about your smile, that's just what you'll do - hide your true, wonderful self behind a grin that looks more like a grimace.

No one wants to cover up their true personality, but if ...

Oral Hygiene High Point NC

Oral hygiene is such a basic part of our everyday routine that it’s easy to gradually fall into bad habits. After all, you figure you must be doing everything right as long as your teeth look okay and you’re not in any discomfort.

Oral Hygiene Tips From The Pros
