Patient Education

Patient Education

Our core philosophy here at Smile Care involves the deeply held belief that patient education is one of the key components of preventive dentistry.  If we can teach you and educate you on proper oral hygiene habits and preventive measures, we believe you will avoid many health issues and maintain your beautiful and healthy smile for years to come.

There are many ways we strive to educate and partner with you on your oral health:
  • Through your routine hygiene appointments twice a year.  When you visit our office and speak with our hygienists and Dr. Paul, we ask if you have any concerns or changes in your health.  We then, throughout the exam, walk you through any concerns we see and instruct you on how to make changes.  If we see you need to be more thorough with flossing or brushing, we don’t shame you, but we encourage you and help you come up with ideas to implement better, more consistent habits.
  • Through our blogs.  We desire to write about the topics that we feel are of interest to you, as we want you to own your oral health and strive to learn and grow.
  • Through social media.  Check out our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts for the latest and most current oral health information.
