4 Questions to Ask the Dentist During a Dental Checkup

As the Metro Detroit weather turns cooler, we look forward to Halloween and the upcoming holiday season. Life seems to get a little busier this time of year, doesn’t it? Before the family gatherings and celebrations with friends and co-workers begin, we urge our patients in the Livonia, Redford, Dearborn Heights, and Plymouth communities to take the time to schedule a fall checkup and cleaning.

The professional staff at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is very happy to answer any questions about dental health! Dr. Jim DeCapite has over 30 years’ experience and brings a wealth of knowledge to everyday clinical practice.

We suggest four great questions to ask the dentist during a fall checkup, for improved dental health for our patients and their family:

  • Am I using the right toothpaste? There are so many types and brands of toothpaste available today that it can be very confusing. Dr. DeCapite and his professional staff are happy to discuss our patients’ particular needs in regard to the appropriate type of toothpaste to use for the best results for teeth and gums.
  • Should I whiten my teeth? At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we help our patients decide if tooth whitening is for them. We provide this service, right in our office, using advanced restorative procedures to give our patients a brighter smile!
  • How does my dental health affect other areas of my overall health? We want our patients to be healthy and happy. We are always glad to discuss how other health issues may be affected by the health of their teeth and gums.
  • How can I reassure my child about visiting the dentist? We understand that children (and many adults) are intimidated by a visit to the dentist. We teach children the proper way to take care of their teeth and they learn that going to the dentist can be fun!

Always feel free to ask questions during a visit to our Livonia office! Our friendly and helpful staff is knowledgeable and concerned about all our patients’ dental health. Be sure to call the office today for a fall checkup and cleaning. We enjoy seeing all our patients and we welcome new patients on the westside of Detroit and the western suburbs throughout the year. Our office is conveniently located in Livonia, near the intersection of Schoolcraft and Merriman Roads.
