Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I visit the dentist?

Dr. Gufford, along with the American Dental Association, recommends that people should get a standard check-up and cleaning at least twice a year, or every 6 months. This is frequent enough that small dental problems can be spotted early and treated quickly. Of course, this is just a general rule, and Dr. Gufford may recommend that you come in more often if you have ongoing dental issues.
