Dental FAQs

We empower our patients to take control of their oral health! This includes maintaining a great doctor-patient relationship to help you reach your smile goals.

Swap Your Tooth Brush

Approximately every three months, you should swap out your tooth brush for a fresh one. Misshapen bristles don’t provide as thorough of a cleaning and can result in more damage.

See Your Dentist Twice a Year

It may come as a shock that you should see your dentist so often! But, when you come in for a regular visit twice a year, or every six months, we’re able to track your progress and prevent any potential issues.

Ask About Sealants

Children aren’t the only ones prone to cavities. Adults can benefit from cavity prevention measures if they are having issues maintaining their oral health. If cavities are something you struggle with, sealants may be able to offer protection at any age.

Oral Health Reflects Overall Health

Eating mouth-healthy foods, avoiding bad habits like drinking and smoking, and more lifestyle behaviors can be reflected in your mouth. By maintaining a healthy and happy life, you’re more likely to show off a beautiful smile.

Use Fluoridated Products

Unless our dentist has stated otherwise for your specific needs, you should always use fluoridated mouth products at home. This’ll help you keep strong teeth that can fend off daily wear and tear.

Protect Your Teeth from Injury

Think about how much your teeth go through in a day. By donning a mouthguard at night – or even during the day – you can defend your teeth against grinding, as well as other forms of tension.

Don’t Forget Your Gums

We always talk about brushing our teeth, but a lot of oral health concerns are rooted in the gums. Flossing and paying attention to your periodontal health can spare you from needing restorative measures in the future.

Patient Testimonials

"My first visit to ARC Dental was for a routine check and it was anything but routine. Dr Rachel gave me a very thorough exam and cleaning. She takes the time to educate you about your oral health and is filled some pretty cool dental facts. You can tell she is truly passionate about being a Dentist. My visit did not feel rushed at all which is rare if you're used to going to a bigger dental practice. The office itself is clean and nicely decorated. It has these large windows they seat you in front of that overlook the water fountain which make for a peaceful visit. You get the red carpet treatment from beginning to end at this place.  I highly recommend this practice to all of my friends and family."

"Dr. Rachel and Alvin are really awesome!! I’ve been to their office three times and they have always gone above and beyond to create a wonderful experience for me. They even put a little sign wishing me a happy birthday!! I really appreciate their effort to build a relationship with their clients. Customer service is really an art and, they are fantastic at it. Oh by the way!! They are amazing dentists lol. Totally love them"

"In today’s world, very rarely do you find impeccable service. From the time I stepped into the office to the time I walked out, Dr. Rachel was kind, warm, knowledgeable, understanding, and also entertaining. It has been a while since I last visited a dentist and it was there that I realized why. The shame in not going for so long, the rapid impersonal service (get you in/out), and the anxiety of not knowing what’s going on but rather just taking the dentist’s recommendations really stood out during and after my appointment. At A.R.C. Dental, it was the complete opposite. If it’s been a while since you’ve been to the dentist or are just looking for a new place with a family feel, then I highly recommend this place."

I know, I know... going to the dentist is a drag, right? Not with ARC Dental Health. Dr.Rachel and Dr.Alvin are so pleasant to be around and make your dental experience a breeze. I’m the type of person who likes to know every little detail and make sure that I know what is going on. I didn’t even need to ask for them to explain procedures, billing, or x-rays. They did all of that on their own and didn’t miss a detail. Dr.Rachel is by far the most gentle dentist. I was nervous about shots since at my previous dentist I had a numbing situation and the shots hurt even after the numbing gel. BUT, I felt NOTHING when Dr.Rachel was working on me. The dental office itself is clean, spacious and very modern. It definitely makes your experience more comfortable!

I have always had a fear of dentist for as long as I could remember until I met Dr. Rachel while out getting ice cream with my twin boys of all places lol. She let me know about her Dental practice and it was right at a time where we were looking for a new dentist. My wife scheduled an appointment and said it was the best place ever. Dr Rachel and Dr Alvin are the nicest people in the world. They explain everything before they do anything and they always make sure you are comfortable the whole time. I am recently in the middle of a pretty rough root canal procedure and I have no words on how great they have done so far simply amazing! I have received 2 calls in less than a week just checking up on me and that means a lot! I recommend anyone looking for a dentist to come to ARC and see there beautiful office and get an amazing Dental experience and yes there is such thing as an amazing Dental experience.
