At Parker & Pennington Dentistry, we stress the importance of routine dental care. We encourage every patient to visit us for a hygiene examination and cleaning a minimum of every six months. Some patients who are receiving certain treatments or being monitored may be required to visit more often than six months. With the start of the new year, now is the perfect time to reflect on your last hygiene appointment. If it has been longer than six months since we have seen you, it is time for a visit! We also encourage you to think about the goals you have for your oral health during the next year. Are there any treatments or problems in the mouth you would like to treat?
