Your Dentist Knows Best
Don’t rush when you brush!
When you’re not rushing to finish brushing, it will keep you more mindful about brushing too aggressive or missing areas.
Visit your dentist once in 6 months
When you see the dentist every six months, they can thoroughly assess the condition of your teeth and gums. Comparing this information allows us to assess if there have been any changes in your dental health.
Don’t Forget to Floss!
Flossing helps remove bacteria, plaque, and food from between your teeth, and it reduces the likelihood of tooth decay and gum disease.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect during a check-up?
You can expect a hygienist to clean your teeth, review dental hygiene habits, and review home care. Then your dentist will give you a complete exam to make sure your dental health is in check.
What if I don't have Insurance?
Many of Hinke Family Dentistry patients don’t have dental insurance, so we created our monthly membership club to help them budget for their preventative dental care. Click here to join!
How often should I floss?
Once daily, but more often doesn’t hurt!
Why get my teeth cleaned every six months?
Professional cleanings every six months to remove built-up plaque and tartar in hard to reach spots that brushing and flossing can miss.
What causes tooth decay?
Demineralization and bacteria are the main reasons for decay. Your eating and drinking habits as well as lack of home care and health issues can also play a role in decay.
