We are dedicated to helping your smile stay healthy and beautiful for years to come. This includes helping you prevent dental decay, gum disease, and other damaging conditions. Two of the most basic yet important preventive treatments we provide to combat these problems are dental cleanings and exams. Each time you visit our office for a checkup, we will provide a professional dental cleaning and exam to prevent oral health problems from developing in your teeth and gums. During your teeth cleaning and exam, our hygienists, Lisa and Amber, will work with Dr. Doty to help your smile stay healthy by:

• Cleaning your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
• Flossing and polishing your teeth for a healthy, bright smile
• Examining your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases

We utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your smile and make certain that you receive the dental care you need.

Dentist Michael D. Doty, D.D.S. recommends that you visit our practice every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and we also encourage you to contact us if you suffer from a dental emergency, pain, or injury. To schedule your next appointment for a dental exam and teeth cleaning in Abingdon, Virginia, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
