New Patients Are Always Welcome
Columbus, MS dentist Dr. Patrick Shipp and our entire team have experience treating everyone in your family, from toddlers to seniors and everyone in between.
Using the latest dental procedures and techniques, we will help you reach your optimal level of dental health. We care about the dental health of you and your family, so our practice focuses on prevention and education. If you come in for examinations and cleanings twice each year, we’ll make sure you are knowledgeable on proper home care as well as any treatment you might need.
With regular dentist appointments, we can identify problems while they are still small. After all, in the dental industry, the smaller the problem, the more manageable the treatment!
We offer all of the preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry your family needs to stay healthy, and we do so with outstanding patient care as our number one priority.
The Importance of Preventive Care
Prevention is key to good oral health, and preventive dentistry gives us the chance to protect your smile, keep it healthy, and avoid dental emergencies. Keeping up with your twice-yearly dental appointments means we can treat common dental problems while they are still small.
- Dental exams
- Diagnostic x-rays
- Professional dental cleanings
If your mouth isn’t healthy, you are risking the health of your entire body. Every family should include regular examinations and cleanings at the dentist as part of their routine wellness plan. Even the most diligent brusher and flosser cannot remove all the plaque and bacteria like our hygienists can.
Coming into our office twice each year enables Dr. Shipp to stay ahead of potential problems, such as the early signs of decay. It's always best to treat dental issues earlier rather than later.
The Importance of Oral Care for Your Youngest Family Members
We agree with the American Dental Association's recommendation to bring kids to the dentist early. In fact, as soon as their first tooth erupts, your children should see the dentist.
Letting them get used to the sights, sounds, and smells of the dentist's office from an early age promotes a positive attitude about visiting the dentist that we hope lasts a lifetime.
Oral Cancer Screening
Another reason to keep up with dental examinations is so Dr. Shipp can screen you for oral cancer. This disease, which can attack the mouth, throat, and lips, impacts more than 40,000 Americans every year.
Dr. Shipp will carefully examine your mouth for any suspicious lesions or discoloration, both early signs of oral cancer. When it is detected early, oral cancer is treatable, so a dental examination could well save your life.
