At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we care about the state of your oral health. We recommend that patients visit our office for routine hygiene examination appointments, where we not only thoroughly clean their teeth but also look for problem areas in their mouths. Because we see patients so infrequently during the year, it is important that they are mindful of any problems or changes to their oral health.
At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we often speak about your oral and your overall health.

Welcome to 2023! It’s hard to believe that the holiday season has passed by and we have started a new year. We know that many of our patients love the start of a new year because it feels like a fresh start. This is one of the reasons we encourage our patients to evaluate the state of their oral health at the beginning of the year.

At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we are continuously speaking about the importance of not only your oral health, but your overall health as well. Even when you do all the right things for your body, such as eat a healthy, well balanced diet, exercise regularly, and receive routine oral and medical care, sometimes unhealthy germs make their way into your system and you can become ill. If we have learned anything over the last few years, it is to read the signs of our body and rest when necessary.
With the end of the year fast approaching, we know that a lot of our patients are starting to think about their health and longevity, including when it comes to their oral health.

We know that other medical professionals are also asked the same questions about diet and exercise.
