Practicing good dental hygiene is extremely important if you want maintain optimal oral health. We are dedicated to providing the highest possible level of care for your smile while you are at our office, and we encourage you to continue to care for your smile at home. Dr. John McAllister recommends brushing your teeth every morning and every night (or after each meal), and flossing daily. It is very important to use the proper toothbrush and the correct toothpaste. Each person is different, so we suggest talking to your dentist during your next appointment at McAllister Dentistry. We often recommend using toothbrushes with soft bristles and toothpaste that contains fluoride. If you have any questions about dental hygiene or the types of dental products we recommend, please feel free to call us or ask us at your next appointment. Our team is committed to educating you on how to care for your smile so it stays healthy and beautiful for life.

We also suggest coming to McAllister Dentistry at least once every six months for a routine dental exam and cleaning. This allows us to provide a professional, thorough dental cleaning, and we can also make certain that we detect and treat any dental problems at the earliest possible stage.
