  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

An Ounce of Prevention

Many patients avoid the dentist until something goes wrong. It may seem logical to put off your appointment if you feel fine. After all, we are all leading busy lives and every minute counts! However, I would like to share with you some of the reasons why you should not put off your routine preventative appointments and opt instead to schedule them regularly and appreciate their value.

Many Dental Emergencies are Preventable

Dental emergencies are no fun. What if I told you that so many of them are preventable? It’s true. Your routine exam and dental hygiene appointment are the best opportunity for our dentists and staff to monitor the health of your teeth. At every appointment, we look for changes and early signs of any common dental problems. When detected early, treatment is often easier and less expensive – saving you time and money. 

Dental Problems don’t go away on Their Own

Dental conditions such as cracked teeth and dental decay do not go away on their own. In fact, dental problems typically worsen over time. You may not think that your teeth need attention as long as they are not hurting you, but many times by the time you feel pain, it’s already too late to save your tooth. Other times, your treatment becomes more complex and costly when you delay.

Your Dentist Could Save Your Life

Your dentist may be the first person to detect a serious underlying health condition. Whether you have bleeding gums due to a systemic illness or the very first signs of oral cancer, early detection from your dentist may save your life. In the case of oral cancer, early detection plays a key role in your survival. Oral cancer is often diagnosed in the later stages, making treatment more disfiguring and reducing your survival over five years. 

If your dentist identified a dental condition that saved you time and money, tell us about it! Share your thoughts on our Facebook wall or next time you’re in our dental office.
