How often should my family come in for checkups and cleanings?
For the average person age three and up, Dr. Cunningham recommends that they should get at least two checkups and cleanings per year. A patient may require more depending on their particular needs, but for most, just two will be enough to help prevent tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and more.
Do you accept children?
Yes! Dr. Cunningham and our team are able to treat every member of your family, including the youngest ones! We can help your child’s smile by providing cavity prevention, monitoring their oral development, and offering education to help them form healthy habits at home.
Can you help straighten my/my child’s teeth?
Yes we can! Dr. Cunningham can provide a variety of orthodontic treatments and is an American Academy of Gnathologic Orthopedics certified practitioner. He’s able to offer traditional braces, Invisalign, Fast Braces, and Six Month Smiles to make sure patients of all ages can have perfectly straight teeth.
I haven’t been to the dentist for many years. Can you still help me?
Yes. Thanks to Dr. Cunningham’s years of experience, he is comfortable handling even the most complicated dental cases. Whether you haven’t been to the dentist for a long time or have recently suffered a traumatic accident, he’ll be able to put together and implement a plan that will fully restore your smile’s health, appearance, and functionality.
