Most of our patients really do enjoy coming in for their regular dental checkups because our dental hygienists and dental assistants…..and yes, even me, Dr. Roth are really nice and friendly people. We strive to treat our patients like family members. During a routine checkup we always go over the patient’s health status and get an update on any new health problems or medications they may be taking. In my practice I make it a point to perform a very thorough exam of  each and every patient’s dental condition. With your permission I will check each tooth for signs of a cavity and also check your gums to see if there are any signs of gum disease or infection. I am very conservative in my approach to treatment and I do stress the importance of taking preventive action before problems become more serious……and more expensive. At all times I promise to be gentle, understanding and empathetic.   -Dr. Roth
