Treat Your Teeth Just Like a New Car

Imagine if you just bought one of the latest and best luxury sedans on the market. You had been saving your money so that when the right time came you could roll off the showroom floor in your new set of wheels. After you get it home, you just can’t take your eyes off the car’s gleaming paint and expert craftsmanship.


You drive your new car every day – back and forth to work, on weekend trips, and on family vacations. However, you never think about changing the oil or doing any other maintenance to it.


After all, you think to yourself, it comes from a top manufacturer and is one of the best-built cars on the road. They surely designed it so that it will run forever without having to do anything to it. Right?


Wrong! Not only will your shiny new car not last very long with that mindset, the same is true of your one-and-only teeth! They are the best things out there for biting, chewing, and mashing – far superior to anything man-made. But if you don’t take care of them, their strength and beauty will fade quickly.

Let Us Keep You Smiling

Dr. Forbes wants to ensure that all our patients have the tools and information they need to keep their teeth – and their smiles – in top shape. That’s why takes time to educate his patients on the importance of having routine dental cleanings and exams every six months.


When you come into our office for a regular checkup and cleaning, here’s what we will do for you:


  • Thoroughly clean your teeth, removing built-up plaque and tartar.
  • Examine your teeth and gums for signs of other dental problems such as gum disease.
  • Perform an oral cancer exam to catch signs of the disease in its early stages.
  • Make recommendations for any other services needed to keep your smile white and bright.
