Educating patients about the importance of regular dental treatment is an important obligation of our dental practice.  But often it’s a very difficult task because many patients have been socialized that their oral health is secondary to their global health.  Unfortunately, research has proven just the opposite.

According to the Health Policy Institute of the American Dental Association, the percentage of children who have had a dental visit in the past year has risen between 2000 and 2013. While adults (age 19-64), the percentage has seen a sharp decline.

A little more than 35% of adults feel the need to visit the dentist annually. This is bad for overall oral health of the people in the US.

One survey found that Millennials (which make up much of the adult population today) are most likely to seek out dental treatment using “daily deals” sites based on cost.  Another point is the fact that people who live in households that make less than $35,000 are more likely to rely on an emergency room visit for treating their teeth than consumers from higher-income households. While it makes sense logically, it’s not a good trend for any of the parties involved.

We offer affordable care and invite you to come in and see practice and its services.

  1. I took my 86 year old Mother, she saw Dr. Novy. I really appreciate the kindness, compassion and genuine interest shown in treating my Mother! In my humble opinion, in today’s
    fast paced, financial driven society—genuine caring and concern from Doctors is a DYING BREED… Thanks to Drs. Novy, Scheinfeld, and Orland!!!
