Has it been a while since you’ve seen us at My Rivertown Dentist? It happens to the best of us! Years go by, time passes, and then next thing you know it’s been a decade or even more since your teeth have been seen and treated by a professional like Dr. Ashley Lee at My Rivertown Dentist in Madison.

Don’t worry! You’re always welcome to see us, for high-quality, compassionate, and comprehensive Madison dental care. We can help you get through any situation, including dental fear or anxiety. Don’t be afraid to take care of your teeth, you’ve got us on your side.

What Can I Expect?

First, know that if you’re feeling embarrassed or if you’re like a quarter of all Americans who struggle with dental anxiety, you’re not alone. We’re a professional, judgement-free office with a primary goal of helping you restore your oral health to its best state and help you feel comfortable with smile care.

Know that we do everything we can to keep your visits efficient, but your initial appointment may take a bit longer than usual due to our need to gather necessary information. You’ll share your new patient paperwork with us, talk about your health history, and undergo a comprehensive examination.

Get Those Dental X-Rays Done

Dental x-rays are one of the best ways Dr. Lee can see what’s going on inside of your mouth from your tooth’s root to tips. They help to give us an idea of the state of your current oral health, especially if you’re coming to see us and you’re in pain or have a cavity to tend to. Our digital x-rays are safer and more reliable than ever. Sit back, relax, and be amazed.

Multiple Appointments Could Be Helpful

Depending on your oral health needs, there’s a good chance you’ll need a complete treatment plan, requiring more than one office visit. We might need to prescribe you antibiotics to clear up an infection, and then treat you once you are fully well. Most patients need something simple such as a filling or root canal before they can make their smile healthy once again. It’s really very common for patients of all ages!

What’s New With You (And Us)

When you see the team at My Rivertown Dentist in Madison, you’re entering into a world of advanced dental care. We’ll take the time to get to really know you before we share all of the amazing technology, treatments, tools we have to help you heal.

We’re also happy to announce that under the expert guidance of Dr. Lee and our partnership with Vivos Therapeutics, we have advanced diagnostics/treatment solutions for issues (both in children and adults) with your airway, including:

  • Development
  • Swallowing Patterns
  • Breathing linked to sleep apnea
  • And so much more

Based on our findings and expert research and findings from The Institute for Craniofacial Medicine, we can see beyond routine smile care for your child and possibly change their lives for the better using special oral appliances created by Vivos designed to help guide jaw development.
