In addition to your home hygiene routine (i.e. daily brushing and flossing), coming in for regular six-month dental cleanings and exams in our Seattle office is probably the most important thing you can do to keep your smile in tip-top shape.

Here’s why: whenever you are here for such a visit, we can eradicate any plaque and bacteria that remains in spite of your hard work at home during those months between your dental checkup appointments. Besides a cleaning, these sessions will also include a thorough examination of your mouth, so that no emerging problems can escalate into major issues for you.

Don’t worry, two of these preventive dentistry checkups are most likely taken care of by your annual dental insurance benefits, if you carry coverage.

Then plan to trust your smile to the friendly professionals at Jahyun Koo DDS. Call our office today at 206-922-4573 to request your next visit. We’re conveniently located on California Avenue Southwest, not far from Fairmount Park.
