But I Just Want My Teeth CLEANED!
by: Dental Assistant Team


 

I JUST WANT MY TEETH CLEANED

Many of our new patients ask “Why do I need to see the dentist for an exam? I only want a cleaning!” Well, to be quite blunt… in the state of Florida, IT’S THE LAW!


Title XXXII REGULATION OF PROFESSIONS AND OCCUPATIONS
Chapter 466 DENTISTRY, DENTAL HYGIENE, AND DENTAL LABORATORIES
466.024 (2) 1. A dentist licensed under this chapter or a physician licensed under chapter 458 or chapter 459 must give medical clearance before a dental hygienist removes calculus deposits, accretions, and stains from exposed surfaces of the teeth or from tooth surfaces within the gingival sulcus.


On a more practical level, we can only determine what type of cleaning a new dental patient needs with a comprehensive examination of the gums. We will also assess tooth structure and identify any bite issues.


When people call to ask about our practice , they will be first required to see our dentist.
Records will be taken at that visit and recommendations for the type of cleaning you need.


If you wish to schedule a cleaning the same day as your initial exam, this can be done. Our initial examination takes about 2 hours due to its comprehensive nature and the fact that our philosophy is get to know you so we can determine the type of dental treatment that is perfect for you.
