Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Everyone should receive two dental cleanings and checkups per year.
Dental checkups and cleanings are essential for laying the foundation of good oral health and establishing the value of receiving routine treatment in an effort to detect potential problems in their early stages.
During checkups, our dentists will look for signs of tooth decay, enamel wear and gum disease. We will also use diagnostic tools to evaluate the health of tissues beneath the surface – specifically the roots of teeth and the jaw. Diagnostic imaging can assist in revealing congenital and developmental abnormalities that might require the attention of a specialist such as an oral surgeon or orthodontist. Like adults, children can develop common oral health conditions including dental caries and inflamed or irritated gums (periodontal disease). Many times, these conditions develop due to diet and poor oral hygiene practices.
Dental hygiene visits are important for keeping teeth and gums clean – especially since patients have difficulty reaching their back teeth when brushing and flossing. Cleanings are a gentle and non-invasive method for preserving and maintaining gum health and cleaning around the teeth so that tartar and plaque accumulation are controlled. Even if children clean their teeth thoroughly, they will still develop tartar that needs to be removed. A form of calcified plaque, tartar cannot be removed by flossing or brushing and must be removed with professional-grade dental instruments.

So on 12/31/19 I had to get a root canal and a filling done. Dr Knox is by far the best dentist I have been to. The assistants are all awesome also. They are very friendly and they definitely do care about you. As Dr Knox was doing the procedure he would fill you in on what he was doing and what you can expect. Very professional and I was very comfortable being there. I normally do not care....

I love this place! Everyone is so polite and helpful. The train is a nice touch. Three different trains run around above the place which gives it a nice touch. Children probably love it! I'm an adult, I love it! I have an appointment for next month. Can't wait!!!

Very polite and respectful. We were seen quick which is good since my daughter is 21 months. Loved the doctor! & the dental assistant. I recommend this place to all mommas with kiddos. My 9 year old also loves this place and the train that circled throughout each room and into the waiting room and whole entire building. Not to mention to train outside. GREAT PLACE! ❤️
