Dental Care


Oral health is important for everybody.

Regular visits to the dentist along with daily brushing and flossing keep bacteria out of your mouth. This lowers your risk for bigger health issues like gum disease, heart disease, pneumonia, and pregnancy issues.

Don’t let fear keep you from seeing a dentist.

Whether you are going to the dentist for the first time or going back after a few years without regular visits, there are tips you can use to ease your concern.

  • Tell your dentist about your concerns before the exam begins. They can ease anxiety and fears by explaining what they are doing
  • See the dentist at a less busy time of day when there are fewer people and tools making noises that could trigger anxiety
  • Ask a friend or a loved one to accompany you during your appointment
