Your Smile Matters to Us
Don’t rush when you brush!
We recommend that you brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes to remove plaque. We may be dating ourselves here, but “All Shook Up” by Elvis Presley, “Respect” by Aretha Franklin and “Can’t Buy Me Love” by the Beatles are the perfect (length) songs for brushing your teeth. Don’t know these old (great) songs? Try “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X.
Come in and see us!
It’s a standard dental recommendation that both children and adults should visit the dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and oral exam. There may be exceptions for which we would want to see you more often, but for most, it’s twice a year.
Don’t forget to floss!
Cleaning between your teeth at least once a day using an interdental cleaner (like floss, dental picks or water flosser) helps to prevent cavities and gum disease.
“For at least 18 years I have relied on Family and Esthetic Dentistry of Hamden to take care of my dental health. Not only is the staff friendly and efficient, but Dr. Charney is a master at figuring out how to resolve complex dental issues and leave me with good-looking teeth.“
“I have moved several times over the past years which always required finding new medical providers. F&EDH has by far been the best dental office I have ever been with. Lisa is an amazing hygienist, so informative and patient with all my questions. The office staff keeps things running smooth. I highly recommend this office to anyone new to the area or just looking for an overall great dental experience.“
“Excellent first experience with new hygienist for my chatty 9 year old daughter. Care was excellent and went above and beyond…
Always great interacting with all staff members & Dr always comes out to see me wherever I am..“
