Yes. As a general dental office, we treat the whole family – from pediatrics to geriatrics and everything in between. We start by offering Happy Visits, a chance for kids as young as 3 or 4 to come to our office, sit in a chair, and visit with our staff. We provide treatments such as dental sealants and fluoride treatments. These preventative procedures protect teeth from cavities and other dental problems. We have many patients in the office who started coming to us as kids and who, as adults, are now bringing their own children to our practice.
After Dr. Albers sees patients for a comprehensive initial exam, he generally recommends scheduling two appointments a year for a routine cleaning and exam. Sometimes patients have conditions (such as gum disease) which might require a more frequent cleaning schedule. We visit with our patients if more frequent visits are indicated and educate them as to why they are important.
If problems are noted during these routine appointments, Dr. Albers and his staff will visit with you about their findings and recommended treatment. Many times, patients can schedule an appointment to fix dental problems before they leave the office following their cleaning appointment.
