How often should I visit Dr. Smiley for a checkup?

For optimal oral health and well-being, visit Dr. Smiley every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. Maintaining regular appointments helps us diagnose and treat issues as they develop, so they can be quickly and efficiently treated.

Do you treat children?

Yes, we do! Dr. Smiley understands that children need to see a dentist just as frequently as adults do and will happily serve Waverly’s youngest patients.

Should I choose teeth whitening or porcelain veneers?

Teeth whitening is a great solution for patients who want to target tooth stains. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, help patients who want to create a smile that’s whiter, straighter, and free from cracks, chips, and deep-set stains.

Are dental implants right for me?

Dental implants help patients who need to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire row of teeth. However, to be considered a candidate for treatment, you must have a strong enough jawbone to support the placement of one or more implant posts. To discover whether dental implants are right for you, please contact our dental office for a consultation with Dr. Smiley.
