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.
