Dental Cleaning Reviews
"I’ve been going to the office and have had treatments from both, Dr, Ferrari and Dr. Aldieri, and I absolutely love this office. I’ve had major work done and continue to do and couldn’t have picked a better place to get my dental treatment done. From my initial visit and up to date, I’ve received outstanding service and support from everyone in this office. I’ve had an implant, root canals, cavities filled, permanent crowns place, dental cleaning, etc and have been 100% satisfied with all the work they’ve done. This office is immaculate, state of the art latest equipment and while you sit to have work done, you get a blanket, tv and massage chairs!! Talk about being pampered!! Their front staff are polite, friendly and they truly make you feel comfortable! The dental assistants, Geraldine and Stephanie always make me feel comfortable while I wait for the dentist, during my treatments and after I’m done. Geraldine is friendly, professional and truly makes me feel like I’m part of her family! Stephanie always makes me feel comfortable when I’m getting my treatments. She is very friendly, holds my hand while I get anesthetics when she sees how nervous I am. Before, during and after treatments, both Geraldine and Stephanie constantly ask if I’m ok. Routine dental cleanings done by Victoria go smoothly every single time I’ve been there. She goes over all that will be done and makes sure you’re keeping up with your cleanings. What I love about the most, besides her kindness and smooth ways of making me comfortable the minute I walk in, is the fact that she makes sure you have your next cleaning before you leave the office as this has never been the case in other dental offices therefore kudos to her for making sure this is done! Christine, the office manager, goes above and beyond to get the maximum out of your insurance. She consults with you and let’s you know how much insurance will cover and makes sure your insurance benefits are used wisely and efficiently. I wholeheartedly recommend this office as I’ve had nothing but excellent service. Two years later, I have no regrets of having made the change from my dentist of 25 years to come to KFA Dental. Thank you all for the service you’ve provided!"- O.T. / Google / May 08, 2019

"To anyone with dental concerns in the midst of covid 19, I'd like to put your mind at ease. I went for my cleaning, with the wonderful Brianna, and was so impressed with the updates KFA has put in place. Special air filter systems and a device that pulls any airborne droplets is placed above you. The rooms are all cleaned and fogged fresh for each patient. They have taken every precaution for their patients and staff. I felt very safe and appreciated all the effort they put into making it a risk free visit."- J.S. / Google / Sep 04, 2020
"KFA Dental has been one of the best dental experiences since I was a young kid. The office is welcoming and beautiful and the staff there are some of the most amazing and nicest people I’ve ever met. Brianna was my hygienist and she literally had hands of an angel! I usually have sensitivity during a cleaning and I felt nothing! She was so wonderful I could have slept on the chair! So happy I switched to this practice and I would recommend them to everyone! They are so precise and they truly care about your comfort level and your mouth health!"- C.S. / Google / Dec 19, 2020

Then Dr. Aldearie was absolutely terrific. So knowledgeable and informative. I had a great experience and and confidently say I’m can’t wait for my cleanings to start. Thank you to all, Happy Holidays Toni Graziano"- T.G. / Google / Dec 19, 2020
Will I Benefit from A Dental Cleaning?
The ADA (American Dental Association) suggests professional dental cleanings twice per year. Babies should get their first dental exam before they turn one, and following that, one of our excellent doctors can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A teeth cleaning may help you avoid cavities at any age due to plaque buildup, the biggest cause of tooth decay, is removed. It will also remove tartar and stains on your teeth, giving a glowing appearance to your clean mouth. If you’d like to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, and improve your overall oral health, make an appointment for your whole family at KFA Dental Excellence.
How Will You Clean My Teeth?
Your teeth cleaning will start by addressing the tartar and plaque that have built up on your enamel, which is usually hard to remove with just daily brushing and flossing. Advanced tools are used to carefully scale buildup without harming your teeth. To start, an ultrasonic device addresses large areas of tartar and plaque with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Then, handheld instruments, like a scaler or curette, will remove any remaining buildup. Every tooth needs to be treated individually to get all the buildup. After the teeth have been scaled, your enamel will be polished to remove stains from your teeth. If requested or needed, a professional fluoride treatment will be done following the cleaning. Once complete, you will have a fresh, clean mouth.
What Comes After My Teeth Cleaning?
One of our skilled dentists may suggest cleanings more frequently if you have any oral health concerns, such as periodontal disease. Otherwise, your next teeth cleaning will be scheduled for approximately six months later. During your appointment, your dentist or an assistant can help you design a good at-home oral care routine by demonstrating techniques and recommending products that will focus on your specific concerns. Both regular dental visits and a good home routine can be very beneficial for your teeth, wallet, and overall mouth health so be sure to attend your regular dental appointments at KFA Dental Excellence.
Help keep your mouth, gums, and teeth healthy with dental cleanings twice a year at KFA Dental Excellence. Drs.
