How Often Should I Visit My General Dentist?

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


Even if you diligently brush your teeth two or more times a day and floss every night before bed, it’s still essential that you visit your general dentist at least two times a year for a professional cleaning and oral evaluation. If you are looking for a Jersey City general dentist, our office is accepting new patients and would be happy to meet with you for an initial consultation.

There are several important reasons you should visit a general dentist at least twice a year:

  • Even if you take excellent care of your teeth and gums, you cannot prevent all dental problems
  • Some oral and dental issues develop gradually and are not obvious without a professional evaluation, and it’s best to fix problems before they become worse
  • At your regular bi-annual appointment, your general dentist will check you for issues such as oral cancer, which is best treated at its earliest stages

Regular visits to our Jersey City dental office are important to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy. Because all oral and dental issues are easiest to treat at soon as they are detected, visiting Dr. Frank two times a year is highly recommended.
