It is important to Dr. Hennington and our team that we provide the highest quality of dental treatment in relaxing, professional and patient-focused environment. That includes helping our patients get the most out of their appointments, and making sure they know how to practice good oral hygiene. Today, we would like to discuss the importance of our patients communicating their dental health desires.
Here are a few questions that we would like to ask patients:
-What is the most important issue you want us to address now?
-What do you want your teeth to look and feel like now? And 20 years from now?
-How important is prevention to you?
Communicating these type of things to Dr. Hennington will help us customize a treatment plan to match your specific dental vision. Ultimately, it is our goal to create an atmosphere where the patient is “in the driver’s seat,” receiving personalized care to meet their individual desires.
Dr. Hennington and our team were recently asked, “Out of all the treatments you offer, what is the one treatment that you consider your “top” treatment, and why?”
The top treatment we offer here at Trade Winds Dental would have to be Invisalign. Dr. Hennington is a certified Invisalign provider, and he knows exactly how to use this virtually invisible treatment to improve the appearance of our patients’ teeth, while stabilizing their bite. Invisalign is also removable, so it easier than ever for our patients to maintain good oral hygiene throughout treatment.
For more information about Invisalign, or to schedule your consultation with Dr. Hennington, please give us a call!

If you’re brushing and flossing on a regular basis, we think that’s fantastic! But, don’t forget that it’s also important to visit Trade Winds Dental every six months, in addition to brushing your teeth a couple times a day. Because your dental health is important to us, we’d like to remind you that it’s time for your examination.
Regular dental checkups are important for maintaining good oral health. Dr. Hennington can:
• Check for problems that might not be seen or felt
• Detect cavities and early signs of decay
• Treat oral health problems early
During an oral exam we will usually check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks and tongue. Checkups will also include a thorough teeth cleaning and polishing. If you have not been to our office in the last six months (or as recommended), call us to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you!
