For Patients in Keego Harbor, MI

Routine Dental Visits

Regular visits to the dentist are important for everyone, from infancy to senior years. Many patients do not realize how much the condition of their oral health can impact their daily quality of life at any age. Dr. Yaldo works with patients of ALL ages and takes the time to identify and address any problems affecting the health and comfort of your smile. 

If you are a new patient, we need your health and medical history and a list of your current prescriptions. This information helps us understand how medicine can interact with your care and your current oral health needs. Routine dental check-ups often include: 

Dental Cleaning

Our dental hygienists provide professional dental cleanings that remove bacterial buildup from the teeth and gums. Harmful bacteria can form a sticky film called plaque. Over time, plaque can harden to form tartar. It is simpler to remove plaque from the smile than tartar, so we recommend that patients visit for a cleaning on a routine basis. Our hygienists use small tools to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums, removing buildup from the smile. They also provide fluoride treatment and sealants for younger patients. 

Dental X-rays

We use modern digital X-rays that give our team a clearer image of the teeth, gums, and jaw. While we may not take X-rays at every visit, we will routinely take X-rays, especially if patients notice changes in their oral health. We also utilize dental X-rays to diagnose patients and create custom treatment plans. Dental X-rays are valuable tools that provide a more in-depth analysis of the condition of your oral health.  

Consultation and Examination

Dr. Yaldo will examine patients’ smiles after the dental hygienists complete the dental cleaning. You may also ask any questions about your treatment or current dental concerns to Dr. Yaldo or his assistants. Dr. Yaldo will consult with you if you have particular dental problems or want to improve your smile with cosmetic care. He works with patients individually to align treatment with their particular goals, oral health needs, and budgets.

Do you accept new patients?

Does your dental office accept insurance and payment plans?

Our dental office will participate with most PPOs. We also offer third-party financing and file insurance claims for our patients. Contact our office if you have insurance questions; we will gladly assist you.

How often should I make a dental appointment?

We recommend that patients make dental appointments twice yearly or every six months. Routine dental check-ups are important because they help us see if you have developing oral health problems. We can catch dental issues early and provide detailed cleanings at regular appointments. Our team can also answer questions and recommend treatments as needed.

When should I bring my child for their first dental check-up?

Because we are a family dental office, we see pediatric patients. We recommend bringing your child for their first dental visit by their first birthday or after their first baby tooth appears. Ensuring your child visits the dentist early will prepare them for years of healthy smiles. Preventative visits keep patients healthy and prevent common pediatric problems like dental cavities.
