Back To School Appointments

Fall is quickly approaching and that means school is close to being in full swing. We know that this year has had it challenges and while school has potentially been virtual for a while, it is close to time for the children to be back in person. With that being said, here at Longbranch Dental in Greenville, TX we want to make sure that your children are getting the dental checkups that they need.

Our dentists take the time to educate your child and family on the correct way to brush so you can go to sleep at night at ease knowing that your child is taking care of their dental health. Dental health is something your child is not born knowing and needs to be learned. That is why we highly encourage all parents to practice good health so your children will see a positive influence.

During the exam, our dentists will educate your child on the do’s and don’ts of brushing, while ensuring they are taking the proper care of their teeth. Our friendly staff will make sure that you and your child are having an enjoyable and informative experience during your stay. Our office believes that oral hygiene habits are important to the overall health of your child’s gums and teeth.

New Year New Smile!

The new year is here and we are celebrating new years resolutions here at Longbranch Dental Center! Our main new year resolution is to continue helping our patients achieve a healthy mouth all year long. Our patients are our main priority and we will do anything we can to make each individual feel comforted and cared for during their visit.

What’s your new year’s resolution? While we know that exercising and dieting are the main factors on people’s minds, our dentists here at Longbranch Dental Center in Greenville, TX want to make sure to add you dental hygiene to that list! Your mouth is one of the most important parts of your body and you need to take care of your teeth just like you would other bones. It all starts with taking the proper precautions when flossing and brushing. Dentists are notorious for stressing the importance of flossing and brushing and this is in every single way true and relevant.

Flossing can help reduce the amount of plaque and food particles that can build up within your molars and teeth. Sticking to a consistent brushing and flossing schedule will not only reduce the need for frequent dentist visits but will also lower your chances of cavities. With the new year bringing a fresh start, our dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants here at our office will help guide you in the right path every step of the way. We will recommend the right toothbrush for you, provide you insight on the best toothpaste, and even give you a full cleaning to start your new year fresh.

Our office is open Monday through Friday and our office hours vary per day so make sure to check out our contact page to see which day works best for you and your schedule. We have a great team of highly trained dentists and a front desk staff that will answer any billing or scheduling questions you may have. Give us a call today to make your next appointment at 903-231-1006

Holiday Heath for Your Teeth

As you may know, the end of the year is approaching and our staff has been letting patients know to use their dental benefits before the end of the year. What many people do not know is that dental benefits expire on December 31st and if you do not use all that they are worth by the end of the year then you lose them. That is money lost!

Also in December you and your family may be attending holiday parties which almost always involve sweet treats and fun! While you may want to dive headfirst into the cookie platter think twice about how it may affect your teeth. Our dentists here at Longbranch Dental Center have a few tips on how to avoid cavities this season. First, after eating any holiday treats make sure to brush thoroughly as soon as you can afterward. The longer the sugar stays on your teeth the worse, but if you can floss to get the hidden sugar plaque out then you are taking the proper precautions.

Make sure you are also sharing these helpful tricks with your children as well, they also have mouths that need to be cared for.  During the holiday season, many people give themselves a few weeks to enjoy whatever they would like, and we would love that for you as well! Just always remember that your oral health is just as important as physical health.

December is also a great time for you to bring your children in for an appointment with any of our highly trained dentists and dental hygienists. Take advantage of school being out and having more time than ever to make an appointment with us here at Longbranch Dental Center. We love to schedule families all together so give us a call today s0 we can schedule family appointments before the holidays.

We wish you a merry and bright Christmas from all of us at Longbranch Dental Center!

Dental Awareness Month- Back to School Appointments!

Backpack? Check. Lunchbox? Check. Teeth cleaning? Check!

They say you are never fully dressed without a smile, so why not give your child a beautiful white smile to wear for their first day back to school?

The new 2018 school year is sneaking up on us and you have been given the ever-growing, back-to-school to-do list that every parent dreads. There is one important thing that the teachers did not include on that list: a back-to-school dental checkup.

Here at Longbranch Dental Center we always say it is good to have routine dental visits, but what makes back-to-school checkups so important is that it can help prevent common dental diseases found in school-age children. Cavities are known to be one of the biggest obstacles that children face and according to the ADA (American Dental Association), it causes them to miss “more than 51 million school hours each year”.

So if you want to keep those cavities and the other dental diseases at bay, here are some tips to have a successful dental checkup to ensure your children’s teeth shine as bright as their future:

  • Brush! Brush! Brush! It’s important to encourage your child to brush twice a day for two minutes to keep those cavities away. Brownie points if your child brushes before their appointment!
  • What time is it?? Naptime! Make sure you don’t schedule your child’s dental appointment during their naptime or your day at the dentist will be most challenging. Also, take into account if your child is cranky or had a bad day, they might not have the energy to make it through the appointment.
  • If one of your children has gone to the dentist before and it’s their younger sibling’s first time, schedule the older child to go first to act as a role model and show the younger one how it’s done.
  • If it is your child’s first time, it’s important to remember to stay strong and stay calm if your child starts to be uncooperative because if you scoop them up and walk out of the office, the next visit will be much harder. Give the doctor time to try and positively turn the visit around.

Once the appointment is underway, make sure to ask the dentist some of the following questions:

  • How is my child’s overall health?
  • Will my child get their teeth cleaned today?
  • Will my child be given fluoride?
  • Does my child need an x-ray or a mouth guard for sports?
  • What are Sealants?

Now your child is ready to go back to school, but make sure to grab your dentist’s card because accidents are bound to happen whether your child is in sports, recess, or just walking down the school hallways. You can place these cards in your purse or in your child’s backpack just in case of emergencies. Maybe while you’re there you’ll even want to sign up for an appointment yourself.

Call Longbranch Dental Center today to schedule you and your child’s next dental appointment! (903) 455-4161

Or maybe your 2018 resolve is to have a bright, good-looking smile you’re proud to show? Whatever it is you want to achieve, don’t let the February fallout happen with your resolutions! Keep connected with the New Year spirit and schedule an appointment with Longbranch Dental Center’s, Greenville’s premier dental practice, today!


Inside out is what it’s all about.


Don’t just want the cosmetic or esthetic benefits of visiting the dentist! A whiter smile is eye-catching but preventative oral health care can add seven years to your life, according to a Wayne State University study. You can have both sides of benefits! Nurture your oral health holistically by scheduling your exams and x-rays each year so you can have healthy teeth and gums for life. It is widely-known that many diseases make their presence known in the mouth; and tooth decay and gum disease that go undetected can equal extensive and costly dental work down the line. Slacking in your oral health maintenance has been linked to heart problems, aggravated issues with diabetes, and even pre-term labor in pregnant women. Be on the defense regarding your dental health. You’ll get fresher breath and can minimize tooth sensitivity and bleeding gums too; that is always a plus!


Once you’ve covered your preliminary bases, you can trust you’re in good hands with Longbranch Dental Center for natural looking dental implants, fillings, orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, or whitening. Longbranch Dental Center even specializes in sedation dentistry if you’re nervous or know you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you.


Schedule an appointment today by 903- 455-4161!


Don’t forget to add calcium and fibrous foods to your diet to boost your dental health and of course, don’t forget to floss!
