Hereford Cosmetic Dentistry

Did you remember that brushing and flossing fights bad breath and removes stains?

If you have persistent stains that brushing can’t remove, get your teeth bleached at Hereford Dental Health for a dazzling stain free smile.

The American Dental Association recommends two minutes as a minimum time for brushing. Most men and women think they brush that long but would be surprised if they actually set a timer. Most of us only brush for about a minute, if that.

I am Dr. Craig Longenecker of Hereford Dental Health. In my office, we practice preventative dentistry by working with our patients to establish essential oral hygiene habits.

If you are looking for a a family dentist in Monkton, I invite you to come meet my understanding team.
