Cleanings, Exams, and X-rays
Professional cleanings performed by a hygienist or dental assistant are as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Read More About Dental Checkups
Oral Cancer Screening
During your dental visit, Dr. Wolthuis can talk to you about your health history and examine you for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer. Regular visits to Wolthuis Family Dentistry can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.
