Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I go to the dentist?
Twice a year. According to the American Dental Association, visiting a trusted dental practitioner every six months is the best way to ensure patients maintain the optimal level of oral health.
Can I bring my kids to your practice?
Our team has years of training and experience offering dental care for the youngest patients, and kids love visiting our family-friendly office.
What makes Dr. Thompson’s practice so unique?
Dr. Thompson and his team offer comfortable, comprehensive care in a relaxed environment making patients look forward to visiting our team twice a year.
Why do I need periodontal charting if I don’t have gum disease?
Gum disease is one of the most common oral health concerns among US adults, and in the early stages, it is easily treatable. However, the mild symptoms of early gum disease are often overlooked by patients. Charting allows us to diagnose and treat gum disease in its earliest stages.
Do you see dental emergencies?
Absolutely. We’re happy to help patients when they need us most, and we offer same day care during dental emergencies whenever possible.
Does teeth whitening work?
Store bought whitening products are unable to deliver on the dramatic results they promise, but our professional in-office and at-home whitening products brighten smiles up to ten shades.
What are other patients saying?
We appreciate patients taking the time to tell us about their experience with our dentist, team, and practice, and we hope those patients who are interested in visiting our Corpus Christi practice will read reviews from some of our patients before visiting us.
