Patient Praise

"My experiences have always been positive at your facility. I appreciate the professionalism and the friendliness of the staff. Kuddos to you all..."

"As always punctual, easy, friendly, and professional."

"I've never been to a doctor's office quite like this one. Everyone is extremely friendly, and they even have a desk set up with the Internet that you can play around on while you wait. During my first visit, they gave me a tour of the entire office. I honestly feel like a VIP every time I go there! Such a modern, fun place! Never thought I'd say fun and dentist in the same sentence!"

"Dr. Deems is a five star dentist and he sees to it that his work and his staff's work is of like quality. The patient is made feel more like a friend than as a patient. I can't praise them enough."

Survey Finds 30% Of Millennials Brush Teeth Only Once A Day

Fox News (2/23, Dadourian) reported that research commissioned by an oral care startup found 30 percent of millennials “brush their teeth just once a day.” The survey of 2,000 Americans also found “the average person had gone more than two days at a time without brushing their teeth at least once a day.”

In addition, the New York Post (2/23, Paul) reported that the survey found 62 percent of Americans fear dental visits, with millennials “more likely to be afraid” of dental visits “than any other age group.” According to the survey, the top reasons Americans avoid the dentist are “fear of painful treatment (74 percent), fear of pain after treatment (47 percent) and noise of the dental drill (34 percent).”

Both of these reports outline two different elements that are either impediments to dental care or contribute to rising dental problems among Millennials.

Brushing only once a day is no “sin,” but because many people brush on the average of only 20 seconds and rarely floss, more brushing and making an effort at flossing would make a difference. To be sure, the most effective time to brush is at bedtime!

It’s also important to understand that the dental community has long understood anxiety around receiving dental care. There are many ways to help that most people don’t know about, based on my experience.

What can you do to be healthy? The same old song and dance: brush, floss, and regular dental checkups. It doesn’t get any easier than that. We can help you get on a good routine and solve any dental problems that you may have, which will save time, money, and pain!
