We always welcome new patients at 12th Street Dental. If you are new to the Rochester, MN area or are
just visiting for a period of time, our dentists will happily assist you. When you visit our dental practice,
you will experience a positive, comfortable environment. Our experienced and friendly staff will make you feel welcomed.
During your comprehensive exam, we check your teeth as well as your tongue, lips, and cheeks for signs of oral cancer
and gum disease. If you have problems with your jaw or are grinding your teeth, we are able to provide information and
products that can help.
At your first visit, your dentist will meet with you to review your past medical and dental history,
discuss any concerns you may have, and assess your personal risk factors for dental disease. Your doctor will then
conduct a thorough visual examination of your teeth and gums. X-rays and additional diagnostic procedures may need to be performed.
Our dentists and staff strive to provide children with a fun, relaxing and educational experience when they
visit our dental practice. During their first visit, your child will receive a routine cleaning and
have any necessary X-rays taken. The visit will also include instruction on good oral hygiene, fluoride treatment to
help prevent cavities and a thorough orthodontic assessment. The treatment provided at each visit is age-appropriate
and in accordance with your child's development.
