General & Preventative Services
You already know brushing and flossing are essential to a healthy mouth. Preventative dentistry is just as important in keeping your smile bright. Routine dental cleanings are important to maintaining good oral hygiene. Professional cleaning by a hygienist can remove mineralized plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. It is recommended you go in for a cleaning once every six months. Once a year we will take a complete set of x-rays using our state of the art digital technology. This will make sure there are no issues that cannot be spotted with the naked eye. Bring your adults, teens and children in for routine checkups. Keep the tooth fairy happy and your teeth and gums healthy!
You never planned on a dental emergency, but if you’re pain, call us at 859-626-0069 right away. We make room in our schedule for dental emergencies and can get you in as soon as possible. Usually it can be a quick procedure to get you out of pain, and then we can talk about treating the root of the problem at a separate appointment. We realize that many patients are in an emergency situation because they have avoided going to the dentist. We want to assure you there will be no judgment or lectures when you come in. Most patients avoid the dentist because of pain. Maybe they had a dentist who was a little rough with them, or some other traumatic experience with dental care. Dr. Mark Stephens has a reputation for having a gentle touch and being great at pain-free treatments.
