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.
Our patients are extremely important to us, and we strive to provide the very best in service. We have a wonderful relationship with many of you, as patients.

At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we not only care about our patients’ oral health, but their overall health as well. When you visit our office for a routine hygiene examination, we do more than just clean your teeth and inspect for decay, we look for signs of weakness in your teeth and mouth that can lead to serious complications in the future. One red flag that indicates a problem is worn teeth. Worn teeth can be a sign that you are clenching and grinding your teeth, a condition known as bruxism.
Have you been avoiding routine dental care due to lack of insurance?

Fluoride is a mineral that is found in many water sources such as lakes, rivers, and surprisingly enough, the ocean.

This month, Dr. Brown focuses on all this and more in his vlog, “Dr. Brown Speaks the Tooth.” Click here to watch the video and learn more about ways to use fluoride to benefit your oral health.
At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we are passionate about not only your oral health, but your overall health as well. We want to stress to our patients how much your lifestyle and eating habits can truly impact your oral health.
