Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care.

We understand that you or your child may feel anxious about visiting our practice for the first time. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible. Please read over the information on this page to ensure that you are fully prepared for your visit.

After your checkup and teeth cleaning are complete, Doctor Bottoms will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile! The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
