Visit Blankenship Family Dentistry for a Gorgeous Smile
Dr. Jordan: When you come to our office for a dental exam and a cleaning, you expect to be greeted with a smile, figured out, ‟How are your kids? How are your family?” I always ask my patients how is their overall health. Because you get to see your dentist twice a year, whereas other doctors you only go to see when you’re sick, I want to make sure that I’m steering my patients in the right direction. I’m not just a tooth doctor, I try to be a whole body doctor, making sure that everybody’s healthy when they come.
Deleted: The next thing that they can expect when I do an exam is a full head-neck check. I do this for oral cancer. I want to make sure that nothing’s going wrong, and if there is any abnormality, that we can catch it early and put people in the right direction and get them feeling good again.
Deleted: After that, I check all of their teeth, check all the fillings, any restorations, and make sure nothing’s leaking, there’s no cracks. I like to avoid problems. If I can catch them early, then that’s doing a good job. The hygienist, after they do their cleaning, you can expect to feel really relaxed and rejuvenated when you have a clean mouth and happy, bright teeth.
