Routine Dental Care
When you arrive for your first dental appointment, we will take your insurance information, and ask you to fill out some forms. During your initial appointment, we will provide:
- Dental Cleaning
- Digital X-rays
- Gum Disease Screening
- Oral Cancer Screening
We will begin your regular dental care visit with a dental exam and cleaning. Our dental hygienists use specialized dental tools to remove plaque and tartar from the mouth. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that builds upon the teeth and gums. Over time, plaque can harden to form tartar, also known as dental calculus. For patients with early signs of gum disease, we can perform scaling and root planing treatments. Scaling removes plaque and tartar from the gums and below the gum line. Root planing cleans plaque and tartar from the tooth roots.
Gum disease and oral cancer screenings are other important aspects of routine dental appointments. During gum disease screenings, we look for irritated, swollen, or bleeding gums. If there are any signs of gum recession or deep gum pockets, we will recommend periodontal therapy. When screening for oral cancer, we look for red or white sores in the mouth and other abnormalities in the tissue of the mouth.

New Patient FAQs
There are multiple common questions that our new patients have about our office:
Are you accepting new patients?
Yes, we are accepting new patients to our Doylestown dental office. You may schedule your dental consultation with us online or call 215-529-8048 for an appointment.
Do you accept dental insurance and financial plans?
Yes, our office accepts dental insurance and payment plans. We are in-network with Delta Dental and will work with you to determine which of our services are covered by insurance. Our office also recommends Care Credit for patients to easily budget their care.
How often do I need to visit the dentist?
We recommend dental visits biannually or every six months. This is because plaque and tartar can easily build up on the teeth and gums. During routine visits, we examine and clean build-up caused by harmful bacteria. Regular visits keep patients’ smiles clean and healthy.
Does your dental office treat children?
Yes, we offer pediatric care for babies and young children. Schedule your child’s first dental visit after their first baby tooth erupts. Pediatric dental care creates a foundation for years of healthy smiles. We also offer fluoride treatment and sealants for older children to prevent decay.
What can I do if I have sensitive teeth?
Tooth sensitivity can often be a result of tooth decay, worn teeth, or simply a natural sensitivity to hydrogen peroxide. Sometimes, patients may need to use toothpaste made with sensitivity in mind. We will also recommend dental veneers, tooth bonding, or crowns for patients with worn teeth. Contact our office if you notice sudden tooth pain and sensitivity to temperatures. Our team can evaluate your smile and provide the right treatment if we find a problem.
