My cleaning and x-rays at Today's Dentistry were the most gentle I have ever had. Dr. Burneson and his staff put me at ease and made my visit enjoyable. Never thought I'd say that about going to the dentist.

To say going to the dentist is something I look forward to is silly. But there is something about your office and Doc that cracks me up. I guess it is a silly office. I sure enjoyed my visit. Thanks and Happy Holidays

What questions should I ask a new dentist?

Having a dentist who can serve as an advisor, support your wellness journey, and advocate for your dental health is crucial. Finding a dentist and team that’s a good fit for you can make all the difference in your comfort. 

When deciding on a dentist for your personal wellness support team, you’ll want to ask questions such as:

  • Is gum disease or gingivitis something I should be worried about?
  • Am I at risk for future dental issues?
  • What are your tips for better oral hygiene at home?
  • Do you offer any payment plans?
  • Why are my teeth so sensitive?
  • Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening treatments?
  • What is causing the pain in my teeth?

When you visit Today’s Dentistry in Ashland, OR, our expert dentist, Dr. Burneson, can provide you with personalized recommendations to improve your oral health. In case there are any problems, we can provide a detailed treatment plan to help get the health of your smile back on track.

How often should I see the dentist?

Dr. Burneson recommends visiting the dentist at least once every six months. Even if you have impeccable dental hygiene habits, some places around your teeth can’t be reached without specialized tools. By visiting our Ashland office twice a year, we have the opportunity to ensure your teeth are fully cleaned as well as check for serious conditions like oral cancer and periodontal disease.
