Patient Education

At Smart Dental it is our mission to help patients become smarter about their own dental health. Education is the key to prevention and a healthy smile.

Check out some of Dr. Sifri's favorite videos below that will empower you to improve your health and smile.

The American Dental Association (ADA) and the Wisconsin Dental Association (WDA) are great resources for learning about improving oral health.​

How to brush your teeth

The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste making sure to get the outer, inner and bite surfaces. Don't forget to brush your tongue as well! Replace your worn toothbrush every three months.

How to floss your teeth

Flossing your teeth is essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums as well as preventing cavities and gum disease. The American Dental Association recommends flossing at least once a day to remove plaque and food buildup between your teeth.

Do I need dental insurance?

There is a misconception that patients need dental insurance in order to receive services at Smart Dental. No dental insurance doesn't have mean no dental care! On average, routine dental care often costs less than your cell phone bill.

Smart Dental accepts cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, and flexible payment plans through CareCredit.

Baby teeth matter

Sometimes parents believe that baby teeth don't matter because they end up falling out. In fact, healthy baby teeth promote good physical and emotional health for a child. In addition healthy baby teeth aid in speech development.
