Spokane, Cheney Dentist Discusses the Importance of Routine Office Visits

Written by Dr. Collins on Aug 2, 2011

As a Family Dentist patients at our Spokane and Cheney offices often ask me about the proper frequency of routine office visits for themselves and their family. Today I’d like to share some important information about the importance of regular office visits to ensure the good oral health of you and your family.

The standard recommended interval for your family’s dental check-ups is every six months. This timing ensures that you receive regular, thorough examinations enabling us to efficiently address problems or potential problems in a timely manner. Scheduling regular, ongoing appointments for exams and cleanings at our Spokane or Cheney Dental Office will help us to ensure that you are following an appropriate routine of at-home oral health care.

Most importantly it will also give you the peace of mind of knowing that you and your family are receiving individualized care and that your oral health care is being monitored regularly by a family dentist who is familiar with your history. In the event of an emergency you can rest assured that you don’t have to spend valuable time re-establishing your dental history. The importance of regular office visits becomes evident when this routine is not followed and subsequent problems develop, becoming painful, debilitating and costly to correct.

Another important reason for establishing routine visits is to Introduce your young children to regular dental checkups helping to get them started on a routine of good oral health care and allowing them to become accustomed to the our dental team and office environment. Many adults who did not have the advantage of regular early childhood office visits developed an aversion to dentists and dental treatments, creating greater potential for oral health care problems in the long-term.

At Spokane and Cheney Family Dentist, your good oral health is of the utmost importance to us. The goal of routine visits will allow you to maintain excellent oral health and ensure bright and beautiful smiles for your whole family!
