Does my Dentist Know?    

female thinking black and white - Dentist - Dental Implants - Delaware & Lewis Center, OH

Can my dentist tell if I brush and floss? YES! And so can your Hygienist. If you don't brush and floss regularly and effectively, then what we'll typically see visually are red/swollen/bleeding gums, more root decay, and more plaque/tartar accumulation.  On x-rays, we can also detect tartar below the gum line, in-between cavities and bone loss...all indicators of the need to improve home care brushing and flossing.

Dear Patients,

Dr Campbell and Staff hope you and your families are doing well and staying healthy during this difficult Coronavirus crisis.  The health and well being of our patients, staff, families, and our community as a whole is our top priority.

As you may have already heard, we have been instructed by the Ohio State Dental Board to discontinue elective patient services in the hopes of reducing the risk of spreading this very contagious virus.  We are limiting patient care to emergency services only for the next few weeks and will keep you updated about any changes through emails, texts, and our website.

If you have any dental pain or discomfort or a situation that needs prompt attention, please call the office to leave a message as we are checking our answering service regularly.  You may also contact Dr. Campbell directly at the cell number provided at the end of our greeting message.

We thank you for putting your trust in us to provide for your dental care needs.  We are closely monitoring updates from the State Dental Board as well as the ADA and CDC and will keep you posted as more information is available.

Thank You for your patience and Stay Healthy!

Dr. Scott A Campbell,  DDS, and Staff
