Healthy Smile Dental
I switched to Healthy Smile from another provider down the street that wanted to charge me almost $500 for a simple cleaning when I first moved to Turlock! I was shocked and called Healthy Smile just in case it might be cheaper somewhere else and they were shocked too. Not only was the staff incredibly attentive and personable, but the office was much nicer in comparison: well lit and decorated with relaxing artwork and comfortable chairs. But above all what I really appreciate is that they performed the same cleaning for $87 and my insurance took care of part of it.I do also want to mention that they are on top of it, I get reminders the way that I prefer to receive them and they even call to notify me if there is an opening in their schedule before my appointment to get me in earlier.Today I made the mistake of thinking my appointment was a week earlier than it was and they saw me anyway. I wasn't even made to wait more than 10-15 minutes! I have never experienced long wait times and when I call in I get to speak to a real person, it's a form of customer service that is lost with a lot of businesses these days.Another thing is that I'm going through getting braces with a mail order company called Smile Direct... they actually gave me tips that I didn't know about to help with the discomfort and asked for more information about the company that I'm working with.If you live in Turlock or even Modesto or Merced, I definitely recommend Healthy Smile, it's worth the drive and (short) wait.Thank you ladies for taking care of me, I actually look forward to going to the dentist because of you!

GO TO THIS PLACE!!!! I would totally recommend this place for anyone who wants great quality service. The staff are exceptionally friendly, answer all questions you may have and make sure that you are comfortable. They helped me find an appointment date even on short notice and the work the dentist did was incredibly good. I left knowing I had got my moneys worth and more. The dentist also goes an extra mile to explain step by step whats being done and why, this I feel is very important! so if you are looking for good quality service and work at an affordable price, Hawkeye Family Dental Practice is the place to go!

I had a broken bridge and went to Hawkeye Family Dental, their services are prompt, professional and excellent. I didnt know that I could ever use that side where the bridge broke again! Dr. G did some heroic work on it and now I have been using the bridge she made for over 5 years. The staff is very friendly. Thank you Dr. G and staff.

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
