Our Preventive Dentistry Services
At Bluestone Dental, we’re happy to offer patients a wide variety of specialized services, restorative treatments, and cosmetic solutions. However, our top goal when caring for you and your family is to help you avoid needing these options altogether. Dr. Whitney Hustad and the rest of our all-female staff want you to enjoy a happy, healthy smile for life, and that can be accomplished with the vital support of our preventive care. Please contact our Duluth, MN office today if you have any questions, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment. Patients of all ages can conveniently find us right here in Bluestone Commons.
Your First Visit
At Bluestone Dental, we want to make sure you have a comfortable and positive experience.
- When you first walk into our state-of-the-art practice, you’ll be warmly greeted by Mary at the front desk.
- Before you even get to the dental chair, Dr. Hustad Davidson will introduce herself and sit down with you for a private one-on-one. This discussion will involve your past experiences, any negative emotions you may have about dental care, a review of your medical history, and a thorough explanation of the exam you’ll undergo.
- We will also discuss the findings, answer any questions and arrange any necessary follow-up appointments. We want you to leave that day feeling much more confident about the future of your oral health and happiness.
Check-ups & Cleanings
Dr. Hustad Davidson recommends that children and adults attend at least two routine check-ups a year. During this process, our team will take digital X-rays, provide necessary screenings, and perform a visual examination of your teeth, gums, jaw, bite, existing restorations, and more. Once we have all of this information at our disposal, Dr. Hustad can work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your needs.
Regular hygiene appointments are also very important. Plaque is constantly forming over your teeth, causing damage and increasing the likelihood of cavities. While it can be cleared away with diligent brushing and flossing, missed areas can develop hard deposits over time. Our experienced hygienists thoroughly clean these areas away and leave your mouth healthy and clean.
