Men and Oral Health

Dentists in Alexandria VAOral health care is important to everyone, yet, according to surveys, men are more likely to ignore their oral heath than women. In honor of Father’s Day, Green Dental of Alexandria would like to encourage all men to make their oral health a priority. Good oral health has been linked with longevity – what better encouragement could there be? However, according to dentists across the United States, men are less likely to visit the dentist for preventive dental care and often wait until there is an oral issue before making a dental appointment. At Green Dental of Alexandria, we want our patients to find value in visiting the dentist’s office and to feel comfortable doing so. We want to be the dental practice that you trust for the dental healthcare needs of your entire family – including the men in your life.

Periodontal disease is one of the most common dental issues that men face as a direct result of not visiting the dentist regularly. Periodontal disease is caused by plaque building up on the gum line and attacking the teeth and gums. Plaque is filled with acid producing bacteria that attacks the enamel of the teeth and infects the gums. Irreversible damage can occur from periodontal disease, causing men to lose their teeth – which brings about a whole host of other dental issues. It has been proven that a link exists between gum disease and cardiovascular disease, and because men experience cardiovascular disease at a higher percentage than women, this should be a huge wake up call to men who put off going to the dentist twice a year. Other risk factors for dental health issues include tobacco use, medications taken regularly, and participation in sports.

Green Dental of Alexandria is a gentle dental practice that strives to provide the highest quality dental healthcare possible in an atmosphere that is relaxing and comfortable for our patients. We know that many men tend to put off all types of preventive health measures, but we want to encourage them not to. So many health issues can be related back to the mouth – which is why promoting optimal oral health care is an essential part of living well.

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!
