I really like the small town feel of this office. It is a family business that has been in Stevens Point ever since I was a little girl. The combination of the skill and attention to patient's needs has always made me feel at ease when I visit. Just this last year, Dr Sally has joined the practice from MN, assuring me that my family will be able to stay with the same dentist as my girls grow up. That's important to me as well.

Dr. Walczak and his staff are very friendly, professional and caring. I know my family is receiving quality care! My son's orthodontic treatment turned out great and I was especially impressed that his beautiful smile didn't require removing teeth or wearing headgear! Thank you, Dr. Walczak and your wonderful staff, for taking such good care of me and my family.

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
