Exam and Cleaning




A dental exam and cleaning with Genuine Gamily Dentistry includes a professional cleaning by a registered Dental Hygienist and an examination of your teeth and gums to identify potential dental problems. X-rays are taken to check for any underlying problems not visible during the visual examination. During the exam, the staff at Genuine Family Dentistry will visually inspect your teeth and gums to check for cavities, gum disease, and any other oral health issues.

Patient Reviews

The lady who did my cleaning... well she is absolutely awesome!! She took her time with my cleaning but also took her time to talk to me and walk me through everything she was doing and why. I have NEVER had that experience at any other dentistry. At other places, it feels like they just try to get you out, but I truly felt like she cared for me and enjoyed teaching me! Also, it's great that they offer a Saturday option! I work Mon-Fri and it's hard to request it off just for a dental visit.

Patient Reviews

“The dental hygienist did a superb job of cleaning, very thorough and professional with cordial communication, prompting me of the procedures throughout the process.  She is the best!!!  

Then, Dr. Paul gave me his very professional and trustworthy advice during my dental examination.  He is so nice, cordial, and kind!  This is an office of integrity and professionalism.  

I was extremely impressed, especially after being disrespected at my previous dental provider, that I enthusiastically took a few of their business cards and even called my friend who was looking for a good dentist.  This is definitely a five star dental office.  I am blessed and happy to return tomorrow for my second visit since last June.”
