Start the Year Off with a Dental Cleaning & Exam

The start of a new year always brings with it the inspiration to take better care of ourselves. As you start jotting down your resolutions and plans for this coming year, be sure to pencil in all the necessary appointments to check up on your health, including a dental cleaning and exam. If you didn’t manage to squeeze in an appointment at the end of 2016 due to the busy holiday season, now is a great time to call and make an appointment to start 2017 on the right foot:


  • Good hygiene is key to prevention. Getting that annual cleaning ensures that the plaque buildup you can’t remove with regular brushing doesn’t remain on your teeth all year long. Plus, our hygienist can discuss your dental care routine with you and give you advice on what you can do on a daily basis to protect your teeth and keep them looking great between visits. Dr. Shumway a Spokane Valley dentist says that this key to maintaining a healthy smile.
  • Regular exams ensure problems are treated when still minor. It may only take those few months between dental exams for you to begin developing gum disease, tooth decay, or the start of enamel erosion. Dr. Schmidt will notice these changes immediately and can help you address the onset of any conditions before they become an emergency.
  • We can even detect some overall health issues. What most people don’t realize about regular dental visits is that the dentist can spot the early signs of health issues before you may notice anything amiss. For instance, when you get a full set of X-rays at your dental appointment, Dr. Schmidt is often the first to spot the signs of osteoporosis before even you or your physician might due to its effects on the teeth and jaw bone. Visiting the dentist twice a year helps you avoid letting anything affecting your health go unchecked.


Putting your dental care at the top of your new year’s resolutions is a great way to start off 2017 feeling healthy and knowing that your teeth are taken care of for the next six months. Make your new year dental cleaning and exam an annual tradition along with other healthy habits and you will be off to a great start.

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my husband. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and she told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my husband know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Zuma zuk
