When you visit our dental office near you in Okotoks for a dental checkup, your dentist will begin by asking you about your recent medical history. They will then examine your mouth and take x-rays. Your dental hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, and your dentist will make recommendations for a treatment plan based on their findings. Your dentist will also perform an oral cancer screening.

When looking for an Okotoks dentist near you, you may notice that some are listed as a DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery), and some are listed as a DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine). Essentially these both mean the same thing, that your dentist has graduated from an accredited dental school. They both have the level of education required to earn a dental degree and have the knowledge and skills available to provide you with top-quality dental care.

Dental care is a personalized service that requires a strong doctor-patient relationship. When you visit a dentist, use the following checklist to determine if they are suitable for your needs:

  • Is the appointment schedule convenient for your own schedule?
  • Is the office neat and orderly?
  • Are there arrangements for dental emergencies?
  • Does the office provide information about fees and payment plans before scheduling an appointment?
  • Is the office easy to get to from your workplace or home?
  • Does your Okotoks dentist record your medical and dental history?

As a patient it’s important you find an office that supports your needs – these are some of the questions our patients ask when coming into our office and we are happy to answer any of the questions you have!

Make sure to maintain healthy habits at home, such as brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing daily. You should also build a relationship with your dentist; see them regularly and speak to them openly about any concerns you may have.

  • You have tooth sensitivity to hot or cold substances
