At Family Dental Associates, Dr. Hodges and Dr. Whites and our experienced dental team are pleased to provide comprehensive, family-friendly dentistry for our patients in Greenwood, Mississippi, and our neighboring communities. We have found that although summer is often viewed as a time when families choose to vacation from the daily demands of the school-year routine, it is also the perfect time to come in for dental work as well!

The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) reports that patients who have routine six-month dental cleanings and exams benefit from improved oral health. Not only do these visits help prevent gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath, but they can help lower the risk for certain diseases such as heart disease and stroke. Why is six months the recommended time period for dental checkups? Well, during a six-month period, tartar build up will require a professional dental cleaning to remove it.

So, if you like to plan ahead of end-of-year work to be done or just want to take advantage of this summer season to come in for needed dental work, Dr. Hodges and Dr. Whites are happy to restore your confident smile. We invite you to call our Family Dental Associates team in Greenwood, Mississippi, today at 662-453-5536 and give yourself a smile boost this summer!
