During Your Appointment

The road to optimum oral health begins with a comprehensive oral exam. We will take digital x-rays of your teeth and jaws to find out if there are any issues within the bone or tooth structures of which we need to be aware. Your teeth and gums will be examined and checked for decay and gingivitis respectively. Your hygienist uses this portion of the exam to check for periodontal disease and if it is present, gauge its extent. When the preliminary exam is completed your teeth will be cleaned.

The next phase includes a final check for decay and other issues as well as a soft tissue exam for oral cancers. The dentist uses the information from the preliminary exam and x-rays to perform the final check and develop your customized treatment plan if needed. Any concerns will be discussed at this point.

I needed a root canal done and my normal dentist doesn’t do them. I was referred to Midgette Family Dentistry by several friends. I called and they got me in the next day. They did my root canal the same day. It can be a very scary procedure but it was pretty painless. Dr. Midgette explained everything to me before he did it and as he was doing it. They may just have gained a new patient for good. The entire staff was wonderful!

I have been going to Dr Midgette as long as he has been in business (he took over my prior dentist, Dr Turner). I stayed because of my hygienist; she is a good friend of the family. Unfortunately she just retired but I have stayed continued to go there; everyone has always been nice and make me feel welcome.

Most thorough and professional dentist office ever! I am a new patient but was in pain they saw me 2 days later and did a root canal the same day. They explained everything to me so clearly and made me feel comfortable. This is truly the best dentist office I have ever been to and I have too much experience. Not cheap but you get what you pay for! Thank you Dr. B., Marilyn and staff! I feel I will have a long relationship with you guys.
