Preventive Dentist Visits

Preventative Dentist MNOur preventive care procedures can prevent oral issues before they begin. With extensive hygiene and periodontal therapies, we will keep your family’s smiles clean, fresh, and healthy.

Oral Hygiene Visits

It is important to brush and floss your teeth daily, as well as routine oral hygiene visits every six months to keep your teeth and gums healthy. As part of a comprehensive dental exam and professional cleaning,  we will use digital radiography to search for decay and gum disease. Also, our intraoral cameras may be used to locate areas of concern.

Periodontal Therapy

Many patients experience little to  no pain associated with gum disease. Some patients may have pain and bleeding in their tissues due to plaque build-up underneath the gum line. When this happens, immediate treatment is essential to relieve pain and conserve the teeth.

At Alpine Dental, we offer modernized and fully developed periodontal therapy programs to help keep the disease in check. With a scaling and root planning procedure, we get rid of buildup from below the gums, then smooth out rough tooth surfaces to prevent plaque buildup in the future.

New Reopening Guidelines

Dear Alpine Dental Patient:

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up- to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.

• We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

• We ask that you contact the office once you arrive in the parking lot to let us know that you have arrived. We will then call you when we are ready to seat you.

• Upon arrival we will asking some screening questions and taking your temperature. Anyone with a temp over 99.5 degrees farenheit will be rescheduled.

• We require you to be wearing a mask when you come in for your appointment.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep our patients and staff safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 763-536-1118 or email at

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
