Just moved to the northshore and needed a new dentist. I like most don't look forward to a dentist visit and try to put it off but the wife won't let me do it for to long, She made me an apt with Dr. Quartano for a cleaning. This plase was much better than my old Dentist in New Orleans. There was a flat screen in every room and the place must be brand new. The Dr. was friendly and the place looked great. Watched a lil TV while i got a cleaning. Wish i could say I didnt have to go back for six months but set an appointment next week for a filling replacement. I think I found a new dentist.

Just moved to the northshore from Hattiesburg, MS. I have always had a fear of the dentist since I was a little girl, and still have the same fear now. Dr. Q and his staff were so friendly to me, I did not even feel like I was in a dental office. I also have a fear of needles and had to get a part of my mouth numbed with one and Dr. Q knew of my fear and ended up numbing me with the needle without me evening know. I actually felt relaxed being in the hands of Dr. Q. Very welcoming environment with friendly staff. Best denstist I've gone to!!

I had always assumed that a root canal would be painful, but after having no choice Dr D made it seem so easy and it was completely pain free. His treatment was conservative and he was patient with me taking the time to explain the options and what the steps would be. I would most definitely recommend Dr D. and all his staff for the care that they gave me and most importantly doing it all pain free!

Outstanding dentistry and staff, Dr. Staples always goes above and beyond. The procedures and pricing are always made clear and I appreciate their ability to fit me into regardless of their busy schedules. I have referred all my local family and friends. Once you experience the difference here, you will never go anywhere else.

I have been going to Dr. Will for several years. He has never disappointed me. He thoroughly explains what the problem is - in common terms (so I can understand), he lets me know that I may feel pain and why, and his prices are fair. Also he is always on time and I have never had a delay. I am a believer.

I can't say thank you enough to Covington Dental Care. The staff put me at ease and helped me in an emergency event, even though I did not have insurance coverage. In my opinion, there is nothing you can do to improve your office. The staff went above and beyond.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
