Your Horsham Dentist Recommends Bi-annual Dental Checkups

If you see your general practitioner, your eye doctor and your OBGYN once a year for a checkup, then why do you need to see your dentist twice a year? Actually, the answer is simple—dentistry is all about prevention. For the most part, medicine is a reactive profession. In other words, you come to your doctor when something is wrong so he or she can help you feel better. Your dentist, on the other hand, works to prevent something from going wrong to begin with, so you don’t have to contend with a dental problem. That’s why Dr. Henkel and his team of dental hygienists and dental assistants want to see you at least twice each year for a dental checkup.
