New Dental Prevention for our Hendersonville Patients

We have made some big strides in Hendersonville for preventing cavities.

I am super excited about this. Yesterday I saw a friend who had a root canal recently. 3 years ago it was a small cavity.  We are becoming much more passionate about dental prevention, about patient education and early dental treatment!

I fully believe that every root canal I do, is the product of me not getting a sealant on that tooth 5 years ago, or us not communicating to you how important flossing is.

I would much rather educate someone on how destructive sodas are, than do a root canal and crown. These procedures take away most of your tooth, and nothing is as good as what God gave us. Just a few things we are excited about around here. Click here for more info.

Our Hendersonville Dentist Office is expanding!

Hendersonville Family Dentistry is expanding into the empty space next door.

The architect has done the main drawings for the new section of the dental office. We are increasing our size by over 50%. This will allow us to bring in another Dr. and to offer more services, letting us serve our patients better. This will allow us to continue to except walk ins, by giving us more space.

We never want to turn anyone in tooth pain away, and this will help out a lot.

The office will probably not even have to close during the renovation, and we hope that the process will be finished 30 days after they start. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Click here for more info on our office

How To Brush Your Teeth Hendersonville Dentistry Style

Dental Hygiene is very important for your health. 

When brushing your teeth, you always want to make sure to use a soft bristle tooth brush, or an electric tooth brush. Angle the tooth brush at a 45 degree angle towards your gums in light, circular motions. Make sure not to brush too hard as this could cause recession, in turn, causing symptoms of sensitivity.

If you use an electric tooth brush make sure you let the tooth brush do the work. Be sure to use minimal pressure when applying the electric tooth brush to your teeth. 

If you have any other questions feel free to ask your Hygienist at your next cleaning appointment!

 

Happy Thanksgiving from your Hendersonville Dentist

Everyone here at Hendersonville Family Dentistry would like to say “Happy Thanksgiving.”

We want all of our patients to drive safe and eat lots of Turkey. It is a time for you to be with your friends and family. We will be here to take care of your dental needs, when you get back.  Be careful with your teeth, as most dentist office in Hendersonville are not open until Monday! Everyone have a nice holiday.

We are having a free day of dentistry this Friday

Free dental day at Hendersonville family dentistry

We are having  our “Dentistry from the heart” in Hendersonville this Friday. We will have 3 doctors on staff, and we are hoping to see around a 100 dental patients for free.

This is the first year we have done this, and we are hoping it is a success. Patients will have the option of getting: one tooth extraction, one dental cleaning, or a composite filling.

It is very hard for me to take off and go do a mission trip. It costs almost 30k a week to keep the dental office open.

This free day of dental care allows me to give back, without abandoning my normal patients for a week or more. We are super excited, and we hope to make it a yearly event here in Hendersonville!

Dentists in Hendersonville Love Halloween

WHO DOESN’T LOVE DRESSING UP AND HAVING FUN?

While people are dressing up as dentists for Halloween, dentists are dressing up as other things! Our office last year had a lot of fun dressing up for this wonderful, candy filled holiday. We handed out candy and dressed up as our favorite characters! Everyone in our office got involved and dressed up!

HALLOWEEN IS ALL ABOUT DRESSING UP AND HAVING FUN!

Do not forget about your teeth while you are eating all this candy! Make sure you are still brushing your teeth and flossing daily! We love to see out patients, but we hate seeing them in pain!

We just signed the lease to expand our hendersonville dental office

Lease is signed! expansion of the Hendersonville location to start in hopefully 60 days.

We have an 8 year lease on the dentist office, so we will be here to serve our patients for a long time to come. we are also trying to figure out a way to do more of our lab stuff in house so turn around times would be faster and predictability of quality would increase. We continue to strive to provide the best dental patient experience we can and to better serve all of our great patients.

 

We are looking to expand our dental office and add a new dentist

After being open in Hendersonville for five years we are finally expanding the office, and getting ready to add another dentist to the practice.

This has been needed for a long time, but we currently do not have the space for another dental provider. We have decided to try to expand into the space next door and increase out capacity to take care of our growing dental patient base.

Hendersonville has been rapidly growing and so has the amount of patients I am having to provide for.

This is a great problem, we have already made significant changes to accommodate more patients. We have increased our number of chairs and hired more dental staff, mostly from Hendersonville.

We are now certified to do 6 month smiles

I went to another dental training this weekend for short term orthodontics.

We can now place braces on adults and have their teeth straight by the next cleaning appointment.

The system is great because no metal shows in the mouth. I like being able to offer more services, and have our patients not have to go to 12 different dental offices to get work done.

We are also going to bring oral surgeons in on some Saturdays to better take care of our patients. Our goal is to be the most convenient dentist office in Hendersonville and maybe Nashville by offering more services and better hours.

A commercial a friend did for me 3 years ago. Its crazy how much the hendersonville dental office has changed.
