Can I come in for a cleaning only?

At Thomas Family Dentistry, it is our job and our primary goal to help you protect and maintain your oral health. We can only do this effectively when you visit us consistently for routine examinations and updated dental x-ray(s). For this reason, we don’t offer cleaning  appointments without examinations and x-rays.

During your examination, Dr. Thomas will screen you for dental concerns such as gum disease, oral cancer,  and tooth decay. 

During your cleaning, our hygienist will remove the plaque buildup and bacteria that cause issues like gum disease and tooth decay; however, your hygienist can’t complete all the screenings that are vital to your oral health without current x-ray(s) an examination from the dentist.

If you have dental insurance, most plans cover most, if not all, of the cost of these preventative visits including the examination and x-rays, which means you will have minimal, if any, out-of-pocket expenses when you come to Thomas Family Dentistry for a cleaning and examination and/or x-rays.

If you have questions about your preventative appointment, please call us. We’re happy to answer them and find a convenient time for your next dental appointment.

If you have difficulty using our website, please email us or call us at (865) 573-0274

COVID Office Visit Changes:

All of us here at Thomas Family Dentistry are excited to finally get back to work. In order to comply with the ADA, TDA, CDC, and 
OSHA guidelines, we have had to make a few changes to how each patient must enter the office. 

When you arrive at the office, we ask that you remain in your car. To let us know that you have arrived for your appointment, call our office phone number at (865) 573-0274. We will let you know when you may enter the office. We ask that you please be patient as we go through this process.

Please remember, every person is requested to wear a mask prior to entering the office.

Continue to practice social distancing. As of now, we are not seeing walk-ins. Please call the office and we will be happy to schedule you an appointment. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We have missed you all!
