Nowadays people are busier than ever and finding time to get a teeth cleaning can be difficult. I’m going to share with you an office that is conveniently located in Desert Ridge Marketplace off Tatum and the 101 and offers exceptional service!
When was the last time you went to the dentist? I get it having someone poke around in your mouth isn’t the most exciting thing but preventative oral care is so important.
One of the biggest reasons I stopped going to the dentist was because my old dentist office was so far (45 mins drive) that I basically had to take an entire day off just to go to the dentist. Luckily I found a new office that is very close to my house, Marketplace Smiles located at Desert Ridge Marketplace. You are more likely to keep or make an appointment if you go somewhere that is centrally located for you.
At Marketplace Smiles you can book all your appointments online which I find so convenient, you can even select your dentist you would like to see. I personally find it very comforting to be able to pick your dentist, you have a face to match the name.
If you are a new patient about 24 hours before your appointment they will send you medical forms that you can fill out online. I highly suggest doing it online, it’s a great time saver!
The office staff is very warm and friendly. Once I checked in I only waited for about 2 minutes till they took me back. Again filling out the new patient medical forms in advance made everything go very quick when checking in.
I went back and did my x-rays then sat down to do my cleaning. I was honest my dental hygienist, Ricardo and said it’s been a while since I have been to the dentist. While I brush, floss and use mouthwash twice a day I have not had a cleaning in a while. My dental hygienist was very nice, explained what they will do today and some options going forward. At no point did I feel like he was trying to upsell me or get me to spend more money. He was very nice and just laid out the options and costs associated with them. Beyond my cleaning, I did add a fluoride treatment. The fluoride treatment was very easy, I took it home then applied to my teeth before bed then washed off in the morning.
I also did a teeth whitening treatment. If you have sensitive teeth I would suggest only doing 1 or 2 sessions, not the full 4 sessions. After my second treatment, I started to get these zingers on my lower teeth. While I’m not sure if zinger is the correct medical term I knew it was time to stop. Marketplace Smiles was so nice, I felt like a baby for stopping but they said it was okay and it varies from person to person on how sensitive your teeth are. Even doing 2 sessions I could tell noticeable whiter teeth!
Happy to say I walked away zero cavities and enjoyable experience at the dentist office. Marketplace Smiles made me feel so comfortable and they have a great deal for new patients, $39 for cleaning, exam, and x-rays! Marketplace Smiles offers cleanings, root canals, crowns, and even emergency visits. Check out their website to see a list of services they offer or to book an appointment online!
