Dental Check Up

Categories: Family Dentistry

When is the last time you had a dental checkup? Most people in the Alexandria area between the ages of five and 80 need a dental checkup every six months. If you live in Alexandria and are at higher risk for oral diseases, you should have your teeth checked every four months, or at least three times a year.

Come into our office, located at 8101 Hinson Farm Rd, Ste 114 in Alexandria, or give us a call to make a dental appointment. You can visit our website at for more information.

Most people in our Alexandria community are in a medium to low risk category. However if you use tobacco or alcohol, eat a lot of sugar in your diet (including lots of soda), or have poor oral hygiene habits, you are likely in a higher risk category and should have your teeth checked right away.

I look at a lot of factors to determine your personal dental hygiene, and your dental outlook for your future. I want you to have the healthiest smile possible so that you can enjoy your teeth for many years without significant problems. If you live in the Alexandria area and are ready to have your teeth checked, please give family dentist James D. Geren, a call.

Our continuing education staff will be ready to get you started with a dental checkup.  At your checkup we will look for evidence of gum disease and ask you about your interest in cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening.

Talk to you soon.
