Absolutely. An example of this would be patients that see their dentist on a 9 month or yearly basis but would like to have their teeth cleaned more frequently. When you come to Whiter Smiles for your cleaning you can bring your insurance information with you and a predetermination will be sent to ensure you are covered for your cleaning. We also do direct billing to save you the hassle of having to submit your claim.
The cost of treatment will vary from patient to patient but an estimate can be given to you over the phone if you provide Katie with a bit more information about your dental history, day to day oral hygiene and which services you are looking to have done (ex: just scaling or scaling, polish & whitening)
Age 3 or 4 is a great time to bring your child in for a cleaning to familiarize them with the dental setting as well as making sure they know how to properly brush their teeth as this will help tremendously to avoid cavities and gum inflammation. They can begin with a ride in the chair followed by a demonstration on how to brush/floss their teeth and if the appointment is going well, we will finish with a cleaning.
My goal as an Independent Dental Hygienist is to give you premium quality care that is not focused on TIME. I book my own appointments and can allow for the appropriate amount of time to get to know you and your specific oral situation. Dental hygienists also have a separate fee guide from Dentists which allows us to give you competitive pricing for our services. Plus I will inform you of what to expect at your visit ahead of time and there will be no surprise exam or X-rays.
This will vary from person to person based on daily oral hygiene, how prone they are to build up of plaque and staining, gum health, degree of bone loss, personal preference and more. Recommended duration between cleanings can range from 3-4-6 or 9 month intervals. At your appointment we can discuss which option is best for you.
The safety of each and every client at Whiter Smiles Dental Hygiene Clinic is of first priority. Katherine Bossers employs strict polices and quality procedures for the sterilization of instruments, the testing of every sterilizer, screening of all clients and staff as well as complete disinfection of all hard surfaces. I welcome any questions you may have about our Infection Prevention and Control Program. Thank You!
