We value your time and do our best to get you in at times that are convenient for you and try to stay on schedule. We, of course, would appreciate the same courtesy from you. We do understand that unforeseen situations may arise that are out of your control.

If you must miss an appointment, please call our office to reschedule as soon as you know, at least 24 hours before your appointment, so that we can use that time to serve another patient. If you miss an appointment or cancel with less than 24 hours notice, you may be charged a $50 cancellation fee. If you miss or cancel appointments repeatedly, we reserve the right to not schedule you any future appointments.

If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you within 24 hours. Refer to our Emergency Appointments page for more information.

TREATMENTS

Delmar Family Dental provides general, pediatric, cosmetic and restorative dental services. Please click on our Services tab for more details.
We will conduct a thorough examination on your first visit to determine the best course of action to achieve dental health and your goals. We will:

  • Take full mouth x-rays to identify any current problems and to use as a baseline on future visits to detect early signs of problems.
  • Assess gum condition and health.
  • Examine teeth for cavities and condition of old dental restorations.
  • Perform a head and neck exam, including salivary glands and lymph nodes, for swelling or other abnormalities.
  • Screen for oral cancer and TMJ (jaw joint) problems.
  • Clean and polish your teeth if no gum disease is present.
  • If gum disease is present, treatment options including “deep cleanings” will be discussed and scheduled.
  • Review oral hygiene instructions and diet considerations to help you maintain your best dental health at home.
Many health conditions are indicated in the mouth and can affect oral health, so your medical information is very important in diagnosing issues with your teeth, gums, and mouth.
Fillings can last for many years, but over time they wear down, discolor, crack and sometimes fall out. Early detection of problems with fillings can help you avoid getting cavities under the filling and causing more serious decay. Let us know if you’re experiencing any pain. We’ll check your fillings at every visit to determine if any need to be replaced.
Absolutely. Dental X-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools. Many oral conditions occur between teeth or under the gums or bones, undetectable by the human eye, and may have no early signs or symptoms. Left untreated, these conditions can create serious dental and general health problems, including loss of teeth and heart problems. Early detection with X-rays can make treatment much less painful, faster, and less expensive. The American Dental Association recommends getting a full mouth series every three years, and check-up bitewing X-rays every 6-24 months depending on the health of your mouth.
