The Patient Experience at Semans Family Dentistry
We have designed our office to be comfortable, stress-free, and inviting to the entire family. From the moment you enter our doors, you will feel welcome.
We believe nothing is more important than providing an outstanding oral health experience to all of our patients. To do this, we come to work each day with a “the patient is number one” mentality. Unlike other practices, we provide more than generic treatments – we take the time to listen to your goals and concerns and work together to achieve your desired results. No matter your age, medical history, or dental needs, we are here for you!
During your visit, we will play relaxing music to help you de-stress and keep your mind off your procedure. If you struggle with dental anxiety, we are happy to offer sedation services to make your visit more comfortable.
Frequently Asked Questions
When Should I Go to the Dentist?
We recommend visiting your dentist at least two times per year. Dr. Semans may recommend more frequent visits depending on your health, treatment schedule, and medical history.
Routine visits help us to keep your teeth clean while checking for signs of underlying health problems. It is extremely important to find and address dental issues early, so keeping up with your regular visits will help us catch cavities, infections, and decay before they have time to worsen.
In the meantime, if you experience a dental issue or injury between visits, please call us and schedule an appointment. We will be happy to find a place for you in our schedule.
What Age of Patients Do You Treat?
How Do I Care for My Teeth at Home?
To prevent cracks, chips, and other tooth damage, do not use your teeth as tools and avoid chewing on hard foods such as ice. To keep your smile bright and white, try to avoid eating and drinking too many dark or dyed foods and drinks. Coffee, tea, wine, and tobacco can all stain and damage your teeth when consumed too frequently.
What Should I Bring to My Appointment?
What Are Your Arrival Instructions?
Please arrive 10 to 15 minutes before your appointment. Because of health and safety restrictions, we must ask that you do not bring a companion or family member into the office unless necessary for your movement or wellbeing.
Please wear a mask into the office. Do not come in if you feel unwell or have been in contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19. For more comprehensive arrival instructions, please visit our sterilization protocol page here.
Health and Safety Standards
To ensure you and your family are safe during your appointment, we closely follow all sanitation and sterilization guidelines set forth by national governmental and dental agencies. After every new patient comes through our office, we thoroughly clean all appropriate surfaces and equipment. Whenever possible, we use disposable tools and materials. For equipment that we cannot throw away, we use both chemical and heat sterilizers to ensure everything is safe and free of contamination.
If you have recently come into contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, or if you are feeling unwell at the time of your visit, please call our office at (330) 867-4461 to discuss your appointment.
