A general family dentist is licensed to provide a wide range of dental treatments to patients of all ages, including children, teens, adults, and seniors.

Family dentists not only have the training required for comprehensive dental care, they also have the experience necessary to work with different family members.

A good family dentist like Dr. Popp knows how to build a positive rapport with everyone, from kids to elders. He’ll ensure that each family member feels safe, comfortable, and respected during every dental treatment.

We recommend that you come in to see us for dental exams and cleanings at least twice a year. These regular dental visits help ensure that we can detect, prevent, and treat any dental concerns for you before the problem becomes serious.

Great dental health is hard to miss.

When you practice good oral hygiene, you have:

  • Clean teeth with no excess plaque
  • Pink, even, and healthy-looking gums
  • Minimal tooth sensitivity to hot or cold foods
  • Long-lasting fresh breath

Practicing good dental hygiene and scheduling regular dental check-ups are the optimal ways to prevent tooth cavities.

A tooth cavity forms when the bacteria in your mouth feed on sugary foods and produce acid. This acid causes a small hole or cavity to form on your teeth. Left untreated, the cavity will lead to an infection with pain, sensitivity, and swelling around the area.

Often, the initial stages of a cavity are painless, so it’s important to see your dentist regularly to detect and treat any cavities before they get worse.

Most at-home or DIY tooth whitening kits deal with mild surface stains on your teeth. These treatments involve a standard bleaching tray that you wear for short periods of time. Since DIY tooth whitening kits come ready-made, they are not customized to fit your teeth well or produce significant changes in the colour of your teeth.

At Marlborough Dental Centre, we offer the BriteSmile® system for professional tooth whitening. This treatment allows us to customize the intensity and application of the brightening agent just for you. BriteSmile® is extremely effective, whitening your teeth by up to 9 shades.

A knocked out or dislodged tooth is a dental emergency. Call us as soon as possible to book an appointment for treatment. We’ll examine the area and determine the optimal surgical procedure to either reinstall your original tooth or insert an artificial dental implant.

Original dental records belong to the dentist who provided the treatment, and not the patient. This is because dentists have to keep all of their records for a set period of time, as determined by their provincial dental regulatory body.

At Marlborough Dental Centre, once we have your permission to do so, we will take care of the transfer of your dental records when you become a patient at our clinic. Additionally, we will go out of our way to assist you with every detail, so your experience is simple and convenient.
