Cleanings and check ups
Regular dental cleanings and exams are paramount to maintaining a healthy mouth. We are dedicated to helping you stay healthy by giving you a thorough and comprehensive cleaning and exam.
What to Expect
If this is your first visit with us, you will be asked to fill out some new patient forms. Time saver hint: You can download the forms from this website and fill them out before you come in to save some time! You can find them under the "Forms" link.
When you're ready, our hygienist will greet you and take you back to one of our private operatories. She will discuss with you any concerns you might have about your oral health. From there, she will take digital X-rays and begin the cleaning. Our hygienists use state of the art prophylaxis equipment and are well-versed in the area of oral care. If she sees it necessary, she may perform a periodontal exam. When she is finished, Dr. Perella will come in for his examination. He will discuss with you any concerns you might have, and any concerns he sees, if any, during his exam.
The entire appointment takes approximately one hour.
The American Dental Association recommends patients have two cleanings per year.
