How often should I be seeing the dentist?

This is one of the most common questions that we see, simply because patients want to keep up on their oral health, but don’t want to go to the dentist more than they have to. The ideal schedule for dental visits is to have an exam as well as a professional teeth cleaning once every six months. In some cases, it may be more appropriate to have your teeth cleaned more frequently (once every three or four months, for instance). At Classic Dental Smiles, Dr. Brian Chan will check your teeth and gums every 6 months to ensure there are no problems developing that need attention and to confirm that you are up to date with all of your oral health needs. Of course, if you feel that yore in need of dental attention between cleanings and exams, we encourage you to give us a call to arrange an appointment at our Rancho Bernardo office.

If you would like more information about the frequency of visits for you and your family, please contact us. Our experienced dentist in Rancho Bernardo can answer any questions that you may have about the process. Give us a call today for more information on how we can help, and schedule your first routine cleaning with our office today!
