This week is National Patient Experience Week! At Abilene Dental, patient experience is our top priority! We want to provide our patients with care that they can count on. Our patients are our family and we want you to feel confident in the dental care that you receive, and for you to leave our office feeling comfortable and at ease.

At Abilene Dental, we are taking steps to decrease the number or oral cancer cases! We want our patients to know how they can decrease their chance of developing oral cancer. Unfortunately, there is no way to determine for sure if a person will develop oral cancer or not. A person with several risk factors could never develop cancer, or a person with no known risk factors could develop cancer.

During April, our team at Abilene Dental is making sure that our patients are fully informed about Oral Cancer and know how to detect it! April is Oral Cancer Awareness month and it is a very important topic to be knowledgeable about to ensure success in your oral health journey! So what are the signs or symptoms that you should be looking for?

The word cancer does not carry a very good sentiment with it. We realize that cancer is not something that many people want to discuss, but it is important that we remain aware and knowledgeable so that we can try and defeat it!

When we hear the word dentures, most of us think of seeing old peoples' teeth fall out! A common misconception. Dentures are NOT just for really old people and are a wonderful treatment option when multiple teeth are missing!

At Abilene Dental, our team is ready and excited to make your oral health journey fit your specific needs.

Our team is here to work with you and make sure that we find the solution that best fits your lifestyle and your smile!

At Abilene Dental, our top priority is patient care and customer service. The only way to guarantee superior care is through hiring a staff that embodies these characteristics.

A baseball, a rock, a faceplant…there are so many different ways that you might lose a permanent tooth! Your tooth might fall out from decay or it might be knocked out, but either way is painful and can be embarrassing. At Abilene Dental, we have the best solution for you and want to customize your experience.

To wrap up our comfort dentistry series, we want to focus on sedation dentistry and the ease that it can bring to your dentistry fears! We realize that a dental office is a very intimidating place for many of our patients and we want to help you conquer your anxious thoughts and make you as comfortable as possible.

Did you know that approximately 40 million Americans avoid the dentist because of fears and anxieties about discomfort? You could be one of those 40 million, and you are not alone! One of the most frequent questions and concerns we receive is about how much discomfort a patient will be in during a certain treatment. No one likes to be in discomfort, and especially in your mouth.
