Dental Care Tips for the Busy Adult

Thumbs Up

Is your oral health suffering because of your busy schedule? Whether you are raising young children or climbing the corporate ladder, we understand that life can get rather hectic. However, you don’t have to let your dental care needs fall by the wayside. Despite your stage of life, taking care of your teeth and gums is important if you want to avoid more serious, disruptive and costly dental problems down the road.

At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we love helping our busiest patients find time for their oral care. Consider the following tips to ensure your smile stays healthy even when you are tight on time:

  • Brush in the shower.
  • Keep a toothbrush handy (in your desk at work, purse, etc).
  • Put a flosser (one-handed tool) in your car.
  • Settle for a quick “dry brushing” between meals rather than not brushing altogether.
  • Sip water often throughout the day.
  • Chew sugar-free gum or gum with xylitol.
  • Avoid sucking on hard candy while you work.
  • Don’t skip your routine dental cleanings – it’s just twice a year!

Keeping a healthy mouth not only fosters a whiter smile and fresher breath, but it also helps keep your whole body in better health. To make sure you are not burdened with lengthy or inconvenient dental visits, you’ll be glad to know that our Marietta office stays on time with our appointments and offers flexible scheduling opportunities for the busy adult.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
