Most people think that a visit to see your dental hygienist is “just a cleaning.” But at Schulte Family Dentistry, we strive to educate our patients on the value of proactive and preventative dental treatments as well as the links between dental health and overall well-being. Being able to restore your teeth with fillings, crowns or implants means nothing if we can’t keep them and the surrounding gum tissue healthy. Our goal is to get each one of our patients on a routine dental maintenance program.
We strive to avoid problems, but if they arise, we like to address them when they are small. We love to see our patients at least twice per year for examination of the teeth (sometimes with the use of dental x-rays) and the surrounding tissues. At each dental cleaning visit, Dr. Lauren will review any treatment recommendations thoroughly with you and answer any questions you may have.
