Regular Dental Exams

The importance of regular exams with a Dentist

Regular dental visits are essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Of course, in the meantime, it’s important that you do your part in taking care of your oral hygiene as well.

What happens at your dental exam?

  • The Dentist will check for and help to prevent tooth decay. He or she will find cavities and fill them as needed
  • Your Dentist will check for gum disease, and treat as necessary.
  • The Dentist can also look for signs of oral cancers.
  • The check-up can also include a careful examination of your tongue, throat, face, head, and neck.
  • Dental X-Rays allow the dentist to see the entire tooth, crowns, roots, and a broad view of the entire mouth
  • You will also have a cleaning from the hygienist, who can remove excess plaque, stains, and clean your teeth.

Patients should remember to:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily
  • Floss daily
  • Use mouthwash to kill bacteria

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
