The Secrets to a Healthy Smile

Brushing Teeth | Browning & Cunningham Family Dentistry

Brush the chewing surfaces of all teeth but especially the back teeth. Your back teeth consist of molars and premolars are the most prone to developing cavities due to the presence of grooves and pits on the chewing surfaces which can catch food and bacteria.

No more waiting around!

No Waiting for a Copay | Waynesboro Dentist

Many of our patients like to know what their copay will be for treatment prior to scheduling.  That used to mean waiting, sometimes up to six weeks, to hear back from your insurance company.  Did you know that we no longer need to send out predeterminations to give you an estimated copay?  We can access most of our patients’ dental policies online and give estimated copay amounts and get you scheduled right away.  It’s important to note that sometimes not all treatment is covered by your insurance company.  That does not mean that the treatment does not need to be done, only that your insurance policy does not cover it.  ...

Don't Let Your Dental Insurance Go To Waste!

Dental Insurance | Waynesboro Dentist

Trying to make sense of your insurance coverage can be a daunting task.  At Browning Family Dentistry, the front office staff is happy to help you understand your benefits. 

Did you know that most insurance policies cover two checkups a year, along with a set of bitewing xrays at 100%?  That means little to no out of pocket expense for you! A checkup includes a thorough cleaning and exam, and at one of these appointments, the hygienist will also take a set of xrays. Not being aware of their dental benefits, many of our patients are letting their dental plan go to waste by not coming in for these visits twice ...

Gum Disease | Waynesboro Dentist

"Over 47 percent of the U.S. adult population ages 30 years and older have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis, according to new research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)...nearly two-thirds (64%) of adults over age 65 have moderate to severe forms of periodontal disease." -ADA 2012.
