Have Questions?

How Often Should I See the Dentist?

It is important to see Dr. Will for regular exams and cleanings every six months. This will help Dr. Will and our staff accurately track your oral health and catch any potential problems early on before they become larger issues. During your cleaning, we will be able to remove plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas that you might not be able to reach with even the most careful and diligent brushing and flossing. This keeps your smile looking bright and feeling healthy. Also, treating problems found during a cleaning or exam is usually much easier and more affordable than waiting until they are causing you pain or discomfort.

Do You Offer Same-Day Appointments?

Yes! We leave room in our schedule for same-day appointments because we know dental emergencies can’t be planned. If you are experiencing dental emergency, please call us right away to let us know that you will be coming in. Dental emergencies include:

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • A persistent toothache
  • Missing or loose dental work

If you are experiencing any of these issues, please come in for an emergency appointment. If your tooth is knocked-out, rinse it with warm water and gently attempt to place it back in its socket. If you can not do this, place the tooth in a small baggie of milk to preserve it, and bring it with you to your appointment.

Do you offer consultations?

At The Burkitt Center for Comprehensive Dentistry, we offer complimentary consultations to patients who seek our advice and expertise. Each consultation includes: one hour with the doctor so we can better understand who you are, the problems you are facing, and your needs, wants and goals; a comprehensive review of your dental history and a thorough exam of current dental health to ensure we offer the best solutions for your case; a custom treatment plan designed specifically for your needs. If you'd like to know how we could improve your smile, contact our team to schedule a consultation today.
