In all honesty, how do you really feel about your dental care? For most patients, it’s something that they think of from time to time (usually around the day that the dentist’s office calls with an exam reminder), and forget about the rest of the time. Of course, you brush and floss, but are you really invested in what comes of your oral hygiene? Our Aurora dentist thinks that you can get more engaged in your dental health – and that we can help.
When you feel comfortable with your dentist’s office, you’re more likely to care about your health overall and see improvements in the state of your teeth and gums. Why? Because forming relationships with a dental practice’s staff gets you thinking about your teeth, and what you can do to give them a boost. Plus, you’re more likely to schedule (and keep) regular exams, giving Dr. Hargreaves a better chance to look for signs of cavities and gum disease.
