When was the last time you saw the dentist for a routine checkup?

You want to do everything possible to keep you and your family’s smiles healthy. Along with proper at-home oral care, it’s also incredibly important that you see our Troy, MI, family dentists Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halsey for routine exams and cleanings. Wondering just how often your family needs to come into our office in order to keep their smiles healthy? The answer might surprise you.

Twice a Year

Two dental visits a year is the magic number. Everyone, including children, should visit their Troy, MI, family dentist every six months if they want to maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. Even if you swear that you are the best brusher and flosser in the Troy area you still need to complement your at-home oral care routine with regular checkups performed by our experienced family dentists and their team.

Dr. Carmody and Dr. Halsey are highly skilled, attentive family dentists that are proud to provide comprehensive dental care to families around the Troy, MI, area. Here at Rochester Dental, we are 100 percent committed to every individual that comes through our doors, whether they are one year old or 100 years old! Dental care starts early, so you should start bringing your child into the office around their first birthday (even sooner if their teeth start to erupt before one year old).

We provide families with everything they need including customized treatment plans that focus on addressing certain issues or risk factors that could predispose you or someone you love to gum disease, tooth loss, and other oral problems. These visits with your family dentist are important as it’s the best way to prevent health problems from occurring.

These six-month checkups include

  • Comprehensive oral health exam
  • Annual x-rays
  • Prophylactic oral cleanings to remove plaque and tartar
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Detecting dental problems early
