Top Patient Rated Alexandria Dentist 2017

Dental cavities are the most prevalent dental issue in the world. They affect billions of people world wide each year, despite the fact that they are almost entirely preventable. Many people simply under estimate cavities because they do not completely understand how they develop within the mouth. Knowledge of dental cavities is the first step in their prevention.

Plaque develops inside the mouth on a daily basis. Plaque is the fuzzy film that you can feel when you run your tongue across your teeth at the end of the day. This plaque is made up of millions of bacteria that thrive off of the foods that you eat. Although there are many good bacteria inside the mouth, there are also many other bacteria that thrive and multiply off of the sugars in the mouth. As the bacteria react from the sugars they produce a damaging acid that begins to demineralize the teeth. This acid is responsible for causing holes, or cavities, in the tooth enamel by weakening the enamel and eating through it.

Oral hygiene habits and dietary choices are the biggest contributing factors to the health of your mouth. Daily flossing and brushing along with regular dental visits for cleanings and checkups are essential components of your oral health. Professional cleanings done twice a year will help to remove stubborn plaque from the teeth that may have turned into the harder substance known as tartar. These professional cleanings alongside a professional exam will leave the mouth as clean as possible. Brushing and flossing at home are also crucial to oral health. Brushing alone though is not enough, so it is important that you are also flossing daily. Floss is designed to reach the tight spaces between the teeth where a toothbrush cannot reach. If plaque is allowed to remain between the teeth, they are extremely vulnerable to decay.

I had my first visit, for a routine cleaning. I am very impressed with the ease of scheduling an appointment, the convenience of appointments outside of ""regular"" business hours, the friendly staff and the thoroughness of the examination and cleaning procedure. Dr. Park was careful, compassionate, a good listener, and explained a lot about my teeth and her recommendations to care for my dental health moving forward. I am pleased and I look forward to being a long-term patient! Thanks Green Dental of Alexandria!

Gold Stars on all fronts. The office is spotless, gives off a great vibe and has quiet soothing classical music playing. The front desk people are very warm and go above and beyond. Televisions are placed above the chairs so you can relax and watch TV while they work away under the hood. Dr. Park is very kind, thorough, and addressed all my concerns and questions.
Sure cleanings hurt a bit, but I actually look forward to them now!

Best dental experience I've had in a long time. The reception/billing staff was friendly and helpful. The dental hygienists were gentle and knowledgeable. Dr Park was kind, thorough, and answered all of my questions. I'll be back!

Dr. Park has a wonderful manner with her patients! I feel very fortunate to have her as my dentist. Her hygienists and office staff are very competent and kind. I would go nowhere else.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

I've been a patient for 3.5 years. Today I got a tooth pulled. I am not proud of that. Dr. Park gave me options today that included allowing her to pull it or go see an Oral Surgeon. There was no way I was leaving her office when I trust her so much. I was nervous but I trust her more than anyone I've ever trusted to complete dental work. I am very found of Dr. Park and how caring and gentle her care is with each patient. I was equally impressed when I walked into her office today. Dr. Park was personally calling a patient just to see how he was doing after a visit. I joked with her about that .... what Dr. calls just to check on you anymore. Very nice. Very much appreciated.

I picked this because it was close and was impressed with the polite professionalism I encountered. Loved that I did not have to wait, but also loved the massage chair to relax tired back muscles. I felt the cost of procedures was a little on the high side...

One of the best dental clinics I've been to thus far. I love the fact that they give an incentive (free tooth whitening) for good dental hygiene and their service is impeccable. I'm happy they actually went over the x-rays and pictures they took of my teeth to give more knowledge of what they look for in x-rays. I'm so happy I found them!
