Spring is associated with renewal and cleaning for some very good reasons – just look around you and you’ll quickly notice that the world seems cleaner and filled with promise after a hard winter. If you want to give your smile a nice uplift, book an appointment at North Bay Dental for a dental cleaning and exam by giving us a call at 262-417-7326 today.
We offer a large variety of dental treatment options for patients of all ages at our Racine, WI dentist office, including an assortment of general dentistry and family dentistry services. Our goal is to be your one-stop shop for all of your and your loved ones’ dental needs so you won’t have to waste time going from one specialist to the next to keep your smiles healthy and beautiful.
Because it can be difficult to find the time to visit the dentist when your schedule is so hectic – not to mention the hassle of coordinating it with all of your family members’ schedules too – we offer some evening and morning hours.

- Open at 8:00 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays
- Open early at 7:30 a.m. on Fridays
- Open extra early at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesdays
- Stay late until 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays
We also accept a variety of payment options. So you’ll know what to expect from your policy, we can happily perform a complimentary insurance check at your request. If you don’t currently have dental insurance, don’t worry. We also take third-party financing through CareCredit.
Swing Into Spring With A Dental Cleaning & Exam
If you need one, it’s a good idea to visit your dentist for a professional cleaning whenever is convenient for you. But when you think about it, springtime is an especially great time for oral hygiene for a few different reasons.
For one thing, you’ve probably put your smile through a lot around the turn of the year. Maybe you like to indulge in sweets around the holiday season. Or perhaps you’re the type to skip brushing and flossing your teeth some when you’re in “vacation mode.” No matter the particular way you handle oral hygiene around the holidays, there’s a good chance you could benefit from a dental visit.
And of course, cleaning your mouth also just fits in with the other ways you refresh various aspects of your life for the springtime. Just like clutter can gradually accumulate in junk drawers and elsewhere in your house, there’s a decent chance that some plaque has formed in your mouth. Add your smile to the deep-cleaning list!
Did you know that the front surfaces of your teeth aren’t totally smooth? There are actually grooves in your teeth that are so thin that not even a single toothbrush bristle can get inside to clean them. That’s part of why it’s so important to visit North Bay Dental every six months for a routine cleaning and checkup from one of our dentists.
When you do visit us for a cleaning, we will use special instruments to thoroughly clean your teeth. You’ll most likely be able to tell the difference when you walk out of our office and have a fresh taste in your mouth and smooth, clean feeling when you run your tongue along your pearly whites.
But getting a cleaning from our gentle and compassionate team isn’t the only reason you should visit us twice a year. When you see us for routine general dentistry, we will also thoroughly assess your current oral health situation and check for any signs of potential issues. We use state-of-the-art dental technology, like digital X-ray machines, to make sure we don’t overlook anything.
By catching potential oral health issues as early as possible, we’ll be able to address any problems while they are still easily fixed. This will save you time and money in the long run because you’ll be able to get less involved treatments and won’t have to make as many appointments.
Along with checking for things you’d expect, like if you have any cavities and need tooth fillings, we will also evaluate the health of your gums and see if you are in need of a gum disease treatment.
If you have any questions at any time, just let us know. Our knowledgeable and approachable team will explain any treatments or problems you are curious about using simple, easy-to-understand language. We’re the smile experts but we still know how to speak with people without relying on confusing jargon to get our point across.
Of course, we are happy to do all we can to help you keep your smile looking and working great, but we also want to help educate our patients on how to do the day-to-day tasks that keep your smile in great shape. In addition to visiting us every six months, you should also do the following things every day if you’re not already:
- Brush all of your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste twice a day
- Floss between all of your chompers at least once a day
- Use a mouthwash or rinse that has been approved by the American Dental Association if recommended or desired
If we feel that you could be doing more to improve and maintain your oral health, we will discuss what we see with you. We can also provide recommendations on how to improve your brushing and flossing technique and demonstrate the proper approach.
We want you to feel relaxed and valued when you are in our care. To make your experience more pleasant and patient-centered, we offer various comfort options, including warm blankets, soft pillows, and vibrating chairs to relax you. We’ll welcome you with warm smiles and offer you a refreshing beverage when you arrive.
Don’t let your oral health slip – call North Bay Dental at 262-417-7326 to schedule a dental cleaning and exam with our caring and professional team. You can also swing by our Racine, WI dentist office in person or use our handy online form to book an appointment with us.
